CarmillaIf you’re a fan of the series interested in reading the source material for the series, or are a fan of vampire fiction who’s heard of the novella but never read it, then have we got a book for you! Carmillais StarWarp Concepts’ most popular title in our Illustrated Classics line, and our edition features exclusive illustrations by Eliseu Gouveia, artist of The Saga of Pandora Zwieback Annual #1Lorelei: Sects and the City, and Vengeance of the Mummy. Here’s the synopsis:

Before Edward and Bella, before Lestat and Louis, even before Dracula and Mina, there was the tale of Carmilla and Laura.

Living with her widowed father in a dreary old castle in the woods of Styria, Laura has longed to have a friend with whom she can confide; a friend to bring some excitement to her pastoral lifestyle. And then Carmilla enters her life.

Left by her mother in the care of Laura’s father, Carmilla is young, beautiful, playful—everything Laura had hoped to find in a companion. In fact, the lonely girl is so thrilled to have a new friend that she is willing to overlook the dark-haired beauty’s strange actions…which include a disturbing, growing obsession for her lovely hostess.

Carmilla, it seems, desires more than just friendship from Laura….

“The way Le Fanu blends together desire and predation is spellbinding. A true Gothic story, Carmilla is great fun.”Gothic Beauty Magazine

Carmilla is a must-read for any true fan of vampire fiction.”LoveVampires.com

“Like many vampire romances, Carmilla and Laura’s love is doomed and unhealthy, but glorious.”io9

Carmilla is on sale in print for $10.95 US; the e-book is $2.99. Visit the Carmilla product page for the sales links.

heartstopper_lg_cover_2013And if sexy monster hunters are your thing, then you should definitely check out Heartstopper: The Legend of La Bella Tenebrosa, StarWarp Concepts’ free three-issue series about Sebastienne “Annie” Mazarin, a 400-year-old, shape-changing huntress who crosses paths with a rock-star incubus hungry for her soul. Originally published in 1995 during the height of comics’ notorious “bad girl era,” these comics are written by  me, and illustrated by Uriel Caton (JSA Annual), Holly Golightly (School Bites), and David C. Matthews.

Visit the Heartstopper product page and start downloading today! (Did I mention all three issues are free?)

All this reminds me of this post I wrote at the StarWarp Concepts blog, back on May 23rd, when the film originally hit theaters. Give it a read, and learn all about my own work with Marvel Comics’ Merry Mutants, in a set of bestselling novels that I wrote titled X-Men: The Chaos Engine Trilogy. In it, the X-Men battled Dr. Doom, Magneto, and the Red Skull for possession of the Cosmic Cube—a device that can alter reality with the merest thought. (You Marvel movie fans might better recognize it as the Tesseract, seen in Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy.) And the star of this three-volume epic wasn’t Wolverine or Phoenix or Cyclops or Storm, but the X-Men’s resident ninja and psychic assassin, Psylocke. Go check it out!

Lorelei: Sects and the CitySpeaking of lethal ladies, perhaps you might like to read Lorelei: Sects and the City, the StarWarp Concepts graphic novel that stars a soul-stealing succubus in battle with a cult of Elder God worshipers attempting to unleash hell on Earth. This critically acclaimed adventure is, at its core, a love letter to 1970s horror comics, written by Steven A. Roman (that’s me), and illustrated by Eliseu Gouveia (Vengeance of the Mummy), Steve Geiger (Web of Spider-Man), and Neil Vokes (Johnny Demon), with a cover by legendary Vampirella artist Esteban Maroto. Visit the Lorelei: Sects and the City product page for all the ordering information, as well as sample pages.

New York Comic Con is being held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, on Manhattan’s West Side. For more information, head over to the NYCC site.

By the way, have you purchased a copy of The Bob Larkin Sketchbook yet? If not, you’re missing out on spectacular pencil drawings of Doc Savage, Spider-Man, Batman, the X-Men, and SWC’s resident succubus, Lorelei. It’s 24 pages of artistic goodness, available exclusively from the StarWarp Concepts webstore. Visit the Bob Larkin Sketchbook product page for all the ordering information, as well as sample pages.
