We are always excited when artists we have shared the experience of making Gothology Comics make a name for themselves, and with Yen Press’ recent announcement that Ashley Witter was drawing their adaptation of the Anne Rice novel Interview With a Vampire, we were pretty floored, and very proud. Publishers Weekly also did an interview with Ashley. Keep an eye out for this comic, we can pretty much guarantee it will look amazing.
In case you missed our Twitter announcement, both The Eternal Sad and Misery Loves Company are available digitally through Graphicly. Future releases of all DAPshow and Gothology comics will also be released digitally. This is a pretty big step for DAPshow so we’re all pretty excited about it. The digital market allows us to release very affordable copies to consumers, and allows them to bypass the high expenses of of buying the comics printed.
We fully endorse digital comics and will focus on them a lot more in the near future. This isn’t the only app/site we will use to distribute comics, Gothology and Dapshow comics will be available in many other formats. This will take a little while, though, so bear with us. In the mean time, we wouldn’t mind you checking out our comics with Graphicly ;).
In all serious, Graphicly is one of the better digital comic applications around. So we suggest using it for digital comics regardless.
Erhm, Children of the Night, you may have noticed that there’s a “special” front page for Gothology Comics. In case you don’t know how to read (in which case, this probably won’t help), we are begrudgingly celebrating the two year anniversary of Gothology today, and for the next week. We goths know the best way to celebrate… by moping. Really, I am more upset that I have allowed myself to live these last two years — oh, the torture life has brought me.
Erhm, we will also be celebrating by making Gothology: The Eternal Sad available for only 14 dollars in the DAPstore (+shipping) while supplies last. So, if you haven’t already bought one, now would be the perfect time.
Erhm, but that is not all children, both The Eternal Sad and Misery Loves Company will be available digitally soon for only $4.99 each. Now you can sulk on the go without having to lug around such a huge book. More information on this will be made available shortly. Just think of all the extra stakes and crosses will will be able to buy with that leftover money?
Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
With so many different styles in this book how can you not find one or two you like. Luckily I am a fan of everyone who takes the time to share what they can do. This collection has so many talented artists. Nothing is jumbled and hard to understand. No one style is like another either. My favorite ones are Ashley Witter, Valia Kapadai, Megan Lawton, Phillip Chanter and Christine Larson.
