Comic anthology Theatre of Tragedy: New Deadline for Artists

June 16, 2011 | Justin

Today we bring both good news and bad news. The bad news is we are about 70 pages short of a completed book and a release of Theatre of Tragedy is still a ways off. The good news however is we are placing a second deadline, so if you missed our original deadline, you still have a chance to get your comic/art in. The new deadline will be the 15th of July. You may also recognize that date as sir Ian Curtis’ birthday.

Our prediction of Tragedy coming on 4/20/11 may have been off, but if Harold Camping has taught us anything, it’s that we can just pick another date, and we feel very good about 7/15/11.

A reminder of our submission guidelines:


3+ page comic relating to the theme (must be b/w or grayscale/toned)
1 photo/drawing for artist bio
Contact Info (e-mail, website)/A paragraph or two about yourself for artist bio

Page Sizing:

6.625 x 10.25 inches (168 x 260 mm)
With bleed, 7 x 10.5 (178 x 267 mm)
For safety, text should be inside 6 x 9 inches (152 x 229 mm)
Text that is in the bleed, will most likely get cut off
Pages must be at least 300dpi


We are taking Illustrations, as well. Same size requirements, and should have contact information sent in with them. Inside front and inside back illustrations can be in color. We can only use a few illustrations for each book (though, we will hold ones we like for future books).

You can also view the official Theatre of Tragedy page for some more information.

Email submissions to gothology(at)dapshow(dot)com!

In other news, happy Number of the Beast Day.

Happy Rapture Day

May 22, 2011 | Justin

The day we have all been waiting for is finally upon us. Today the rapture officially started, and our miserable lives will be over before we know it.

..Oh, what’s that? You don’t believe it happened? Well, I will have to agree to disagree, as I have proof it did happen. And, no, I’m not talking about the volcano erupting in Iceland. That was purely coincidental. I am referring to this tweet from Rebecca Black.

On the set of the video for my new single!! (:

Absolute proof the world is soon coming to an end.

Theatre of Tragedy Submissions

April 27, 2011 | Justin

To those who have sent in comics and illustrations for the third volume of Gothology: Thank you. The submissions we have been receiving are quite nice and this book is shaping up to be our best yet. We should have had some contact with everyone who has submitted by now. If we haven’t replied to you to let you know we have it, contact us to see if we have gotten it.

We are currently reviewing submissions, and within the next two weeks well send out emails out to each contributor with any changes needed (if any), and a release form if their contributions are approved.

To those who HAVEN’T sent in anything and were working on submissions or wanted to, we still have plenty of space to fill — so we’ll still be taking submissions until the latter part of May — this especially goes out to those who have been given some extra time to already. In case you need a refresher, here’s a link to the requirements for Theatre of Tragedy.

The Dark Side of the Fish

April 25, 2011 | Justin

I assume this video will be removed from Youtube soon, so enjoy it while you can. It is nice to see Gothic culture being represented in cartoons meant for children. And the lead “Goth’s” voice is right on cue. Good job, Show-that-is-on-a-network-I-despise.

The Walk of Shame

April 25, 2011 | Justin

This is something that has been floating around the internet. Let me just say, this is not at all cute or impressive. I do this walk every damn day of my life. Real talk.
