Let me start by saying: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
For the past month, I have been teasing that an announcement concerning 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' would drop on Halloween and this is that announcement.
Originally, 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' was going to drop online in eight-page instalments. However, as time went on I realized that this wouldn't do the book justice. So the executive decision was made to serialize the graphic novel (which grew from 80 pages in length to a whopping 132 pages) in five single issue instalments. Or five 'Acts' if you will.
And there was no way that I was going to allow this to only happen digitally. This book needs to be in print! So starting in January (and publishing monthly) 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' will be published in print and digital formats!
The publication will include a section in each issue for fan art as well as a traditional letters page called 'To Hell & Back'. Because the amount of pages for each section is limited, we can't promise that all pieces of fan art and all of the letters sent in will make it into the print publication. However, we have a section on the website dedicated to fan art and if we receive enough letters then we will be setting up a podcast where those letters will be read and answered. That way, if your fan art or letter doesn't make it into the print publication, you can be damned sure that it will be on the website!
Once all five acts of 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' have been published, we will be going to IndieGoGo to begin crowdfunding for a collected edition of all five issues. I would call it a trade paperback but I'm hoping that we can garner enough interest to go for a Hardcover edition as well as several IndieGoGo exclusive perks for the campaign.
Even though the release dates are still subject to change, here is the schedule for the releasing of the single acts:
ACT ONE: DEATH WALKS IN THE SHADOWS - January 17th 2021
ACT TWO: SCENT OF THE OBSCENE - Febuary 14th 2021
ACT THREE: THE PRIVATE WORLD OF DARKNESS - March 21st 2021
ACT FOUR: THE STRANGE COLOUR OF THE BODY'S TEARS - April 18th 2021
ACT FIVE: ALL THE COLOURS OF THE DARK - May 16th 2021
Those dates are for both the print and digital editions of each act. The print edition will cost £1.99 and the digital editions will cost you absolutely nothing...That's right. The digital editions will be FREE. However, the digital editions will not contain the letters section or fan art section. That will be reserved for the print edition only... And did I mention that the print edition will be A4 in size?
But here's the best bit: You can now pre-order your print copies of Act One NOW!!! As in right now! All you have to do is go HERE.
There won't be pre-orders for the digital edition (sorry). You will have to wait until the release date for digital editions. And it's also best to point out that when the collected edition is released it will only be available in print.
We've done all we can to keep the costs down, especially for the cover price of the individual acts. And even though shipping can be pricey, we have done all we can to keep that down too! So if you're ordering your copy of 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS - ACT ONE' to be delivered to a UK address then shipping will cost you £3, and if your order is being shipped to an address that is outside of the UK then it will cost you £5.
I can't tell you how excited I am by all of this and I can't wait to get the book out there for everyone to enjoy. Along the way leading up to the release, I will be working on designs for various items of LADY SATAN merchandise (I don't know about you but I want to see some t-shirts). So stay tuned and you might be able to grab yourself some official LADY SATAN merchandise real soon!
I'm sure that leading up to the release of the first issue there will be plenty more LADY SATAN related news dropping and you can guarantee that you will hear it here first. But until then I just want to thank everyone for their support. I cannot wait for this book to be released and in the hands of all the people who have expressed interest and support.
Until next time: Take Care Of Yourselves, Take Care Of Each Other & Stay Awesome!
