Super Coven author & artist Tenebrous Kate has released the first publication from Heretical Sexts, My Dream Date with a Villain. Featuring the art and writing of 14 contributors, the zine includes stories of romantic encounters with a variety of nefarious characters from fiction and history. See what it’s like to spend time with a kinky Countess Bathory, hear the politically dodgy ideas espoused by Hamburglar, gaze dreamily at Udo Kier’s Dracula, and much more.
Purchase your copy in the Heretical Sexts store! Five bucks for an embarrassment of amazing comics, art and fiction, shipped directly to the privacy of your troll cave or witch’s hovel.
Super Coven is now a part of Heretical Sexts, a micro-publishing imprint edited and curated by Super Coven creator Tenebrous Kate. Heretical Sexts publications celebrate the dark and bizarre and bring together artists and creators who share a passion for strange, lurid subject matter.
The first publication from Heretical Sexts is titled My Dream Date with a Villain and will be released in late August. Dream Date brings together fourteen artists and authors who share the sordid details of their trysts with infamous baddies like Bellatrix Lestrange, Doctor Doom, Ilsa She-Wolf of the S.S. and Captain Hook. There are also plans to bring Super Coven to the printed page, allowing readers to better enjoy entire stories. Stay tuned for news on that front!
Super Coven will continue to be published online on Mondays. We’re on a brief summer break to put the finishing touches on Dream Date, and will return on September 1st, 2014.
Friends of the Coven who are in the NYC area, check out Brooklyn Zine Fest this weekend at the Brooklyn Historical Society. This year has double the vendors over the course of two days, with a completely fresh line-up of independent micro-publishers each day.
I will have illustrated pieces in two publications premiering at BZF: I Love Bad Movies (where I talk about the link between J & B blended scotch and giallo cinema) and Thank You for your Cooperation: A RoboCop Fanzine (where I explore the significance of bubblegum in the 1987 classic). I’ll duly update here once copies are available for purchase online.
In order to create a fully-immersive Super Coven experience, I’ve pulled together some songs that you are 100%, absolutely, truly-truly guaranteed to hear if you were to attend a vampyre scene party like the one described in “Dive Bar of the Damned.” Years of anthropological research have led to the creation of this playlist. Enjoy!
