Just wanted to pass along a tidbit of tasty information... LAST CARESS, the newest comic from horror author Sam Costello and yours-truly, is available right NOW... RIGHT HERE!
Yes, you heard correctly, it's right HERE for the viewing - that is, the first 16 pages. Split Lip Comics has been publishing one page online every Tuesday & Thursday and they're now 2/3 of the way there with yet another page coming, you guessed it, tomorrow! I wanted to wait until there were a sizable number of pages to be read before announcing - that way you can sink you're teeth in just before being teased to wait until another Tuesday or Thursday. Yeah, I'm that kinda guy.
Last Caress is the tale of Sybil, a woman in her late 40's running a modeling agency in Manhattan. A woman not terribly pleased with life and one hard-pressed to wear a smile. Though that's not the only thing unusual about Sybil. She see's things a little differently. She see's people differently.
In an industry that's hellbent on the next young thing through he door Sybil's view of the world has skewed around her towards the furtherest degree... "Everything looks... desiccated, ancient". That is, until she see's Sun Yoo.
This is the first time I've taken this approach to a comic and I think Last Caress was the perfect fit for it. Trying to punctuate certain aspects of the story using a graphic, high contrast look with a gritty, loose feel. Much fun for myself and I think you'll enjoy it as well.
For Mr. Sam Costello Last Caress was inspired by the song of the same name by the Misfits - and one verse in particular really triggered Sam's mind to begin turning and churning out this rather wicked tale. Which verse? Anymore than that I can't tell you. You'll just have to discover it yourself!
Just visit the STORE section of their site, or simply click HERE, and you can pick up not only Last Caress but a slew of other stories from the mind of Mr. Sam Costello.
Hope you enjoy and I'll talk with you soon!
