DRACULA: SON OF THE DRAGON prints by @nathanfoxy, one of the perks for my Kickstarter withSalgood Sam. Together they form a diptych depicting the vampiric excesses a young Vlad the Impaler experiences in the Sultan’s court.
For those of you who don’t know, DRACULA: SON OF THE DRAGON is the the epic comic book story of how the historical Vlad Tepes became the vampire in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Looks like the first chapter of DRACULA will be out in Salgood’s REVOLVER quarterly in the next couple weeks. Details on that soon. Big thanks to Nathan - for whom I’m teaching classes with Jim Rugg for SVA’s Visual Narrative MFA program. Oh, and Salgood is selling some of his art, which you can buy here.
DRACULA: SON OF THE DRAGON:
Some of artist Salgood Sam’s process constructing a Medieval Tournament for our book DRACULA: SON OF THE DRAGON. IN this scene, Dracula’s father Dracul battles his nemesis John Hunyadi for the favor of the Holy Roman Emperor - head of the mysterious Order of The Dragon.
I couldn’t be happier with how the book is coming out, and there’s more where this came from - check out our Facebook Page (and give us a “like” while you’re there, if you’re so inclined). And of course, if you’re a Kickstarter backer you are seeing this and more way before everyone else.
This Wednesday, May 29th I’m the guest at @GAppleComics monthly “SAUCED” Wine Mixer.
This event is a huge THANK YOU to all of you who supported the DRACULA: SON OF THE DRAGON KICKSTARTER, and I’ll also be celebrating the release of the GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES TPB.
Regardless of whether you backed the book or not, or you’d like a signed GRAVEYARD TPB I hope you can make it. Golden Apple is a great store, and SAUCED is a great industry mixer. And oh yeah…there will be FREE WINE.
I’ll be there from 6-9 PM, and Golden Apple is 7018 Melrose Avenue Los Angeles CA, 90038.
Really looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible there.
@urbanbarbarian (Dan Panosian)’s painted(!) piece for the DRACULA: SON OF THE DRAGON @kickstarter.
As I write this, wehave less than 24 hours to raise $1,000 and close this out.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO IT.
If you are thinking of pledging, or raising your pledge amount for a better incentive, NOW IS THE TIME TO DO PLEDGE:
This isn’t just (NSFW) DRACULA guest art from @nathanfoxy - we’re offering this diptych as two prints for just $40 as the last official perk for our @kickstarter campaign. Want them? Pledge here:
In case you are wondering what the meaning of this scene is…
When Vlad Dracul - Dracula’s father - sends his sons Vlad Dracula and Radu the Handsome as hostages to the Ottoman Sultan, they are sent along with hundreds of young boys as tribute. Ripped from their families, these boys will be turned into Janissaries, the Sultan’s shock troops.
But among these boys is a Trojan Horse…a girl. And not just any girl, a vampire. Vlad Dracul and his fellow members of The Order of the Dragon hope to infect The Ottoman empire with the plague of vampirism.
But the Sultan’s son Mehmet has other ideas. For humans, drinking vampire blood is immensely pleasurable.
There’s more to this story of course, but for that you’ll have to read the book. And once again, the only way that happens is if you pledge here:
Richard’s take on Vlad for a pin up! Known Richard for a long time, we started out in the business in toronto together. He’s always been a great colorist, generally talented. Lately i think, his inked renderings have gotten especially sharp it seems. Kicking ass.
