The sun is shining and the birds are singing. The doors to the dungeon boom to a close behind me; and in my hands are the fruits of the last...pffft....eight months...?
Introducing: Proscenium. It's a comic book. Sort of.
For those of you who perhaps aren't aware (and I'm sure that's most of you) my last few original comic books have been ghost stories. While Proscenium continues this trend with supernatural strands and an atmosphere of ghostliness, (yes I believe there is a difference) it cannot be described strictly as a ghost story. But neither is it a "horror" comic. Confused? Fair enough...
Proscenium is an anthology of daydreams and intrusions. At best it fits within the genre of the Strange Story: where perhaps there are usually supernatural, or psychological explanations to the goings on. Often, in fact, it is a little of both.
Here's a preview of select pages from the book:
There are five stories, or episodes, to the book: a poem, an illustrated story, and three comics.
Proscenium is 68 pages; colour and black and white throughout - and will be available at my table at London Super Comic Con on August 25th - 27th. Shortly afterwards it will be available elsewhere. Hopefully.
Watch this space for more updates closer to the event.
