Being solicited for now at your comics shop and coming in February:
A Chad Michael Ward Goth trilogy
Autopsyrotica, Devil Engine, Black Rust
A specially priced banded set of 3 of cult phenom Chad Michael Ward fantasy and conceptual art books – a collection of images that fit together in a morbid jigsaw puzzle of wires, women and man-beasts to form a symbolic cyberotic tale of love, redemption and death. Tim Bradstreet calls it “the sum of gothic eroticism.” Will appeal strongly to fans of Ashley Wood and Brom.
9×12, 256pp., full color trade pbs, set of 3, $49.99, ISBN 9781561637270
