Just in time for the (scary) holidays comes Psychosis! a 56-page, Black and White, horror anthology where the main theme is a relevant look at the fears of the 21st Century. As I’ve mentioned previously its contributors hail from a variety of backgrounds and form a true mix of established talent and enthusiastic, up-and-coming talent — cutting their teeth on strong themes. This issue features a combination of five eight-page prose and illustrated stories that focus on the fears and horrors of the modern age.
In case you missed any of my previous posts on this topic, yeah, I’m one of the contributors, and now that I’ve seen the entire book (and have one in my greedy little paws, I might add). I’m probably going to have a giveaway/contest and award one lucky winner a shot at acquiring what can only be described as a future collector’s item
yeah, right. I just need to a) work out the details of such a contest, and b) get some actual copies for distribution (I received my copy this past Sunday at the NY Comicbook Spectacular 4 convention, the distribution copies I should have this Thursday when I pick them up from our imperious leader Keith Murphey).
Speaking as both a contributor to the book as well as a comicbook fan, this book is gorgeous! Seriously, it looks beautiful (there are four covers, to the book, and while I like the one by Melvin Ylagan that illustrates my story, they are all quite good (Craig Wolden’s Wastrel Isle cover is also quite fetching).
Still, the coolest thing for me, is not the book itself (which can be purchased by going to DimeStore Productions), but that while at the Con, two separate artists, (Rammer Sánchez who drew Skins (which sports one of the most unique, and unusual panel structures I’ve ever seen), and Dave from Crazy Comics) expressed interest in drawing two more of my stories. And I wasn’t even pitching the stories. They asked me!
What’s cooler than that, eh?
So now I have to set up a couple of book signings here in CT at the local comicbook shops, plus make plans to attend our kick-off party in NYC at Twins Pub, as well as some more NYC & CT Cons during October. If you want to learn more about GWP, Psychosis!, or where we will be appearing, check us out here, or here at the CAG site. Now, all I have to do is get my guy elected to the State Senate,
and a full-time, paying gig in my field, and I’ll be in Fat City!
