UK Artwork Unveiled for Anne Rice's Prince LestatAt the end of July author Anne Rice revealed her UK publisher, Chatto & Windus’, artwork for the upcoming Prince Lestat; and it was, to say the least, rather underwhelming. Well, they listened to the fans and have modified it.

Per Anne herself on Facebook: You may remember I recently unveiled the UK cover for Prince Lestat. Many of you liked the handsome young man on the cover but others commented he wasn’t the Lestat you saw when reading my books.

My UK publishers have listened to your responses and designed a beautiful new typographical cover instead, which allows you to keep Lestat in your mind. It will be in a luxurious supermatt finish with my name embossed along with the title AND fronds, on the front, spine and back! I think it is gorgeous and powerful.

We agree, Anne. Nice job, Chatto & Windus!

Prince Lestat, the first of several upcoming new installments in The Vampire Chronicles, arrives in the US on October 28th and in the UK on October 30th.

Synopsis:
A stunning departure, a surprising and compelling return… From Anne Rice, perennial best seller, single-handed reinventor of the vampire cosmology—a new, exhilarating novel, a deepening of her vampire mythology, and a chillingly hypnotic mystery-thriller.

“What can we do but reach for the embrace that must now contain both heaven and hell: our doom again and again and again…” —from The Vampire Lestat

Rice once again summons up the irresistible spirit-world of the oldest and most powerful forces of the night, invisible beings unleashed on an unsuspecting world able to take blood from humans, in a long-awaited return to the extraordinary world of The Vampire Chronicles and the uniquely seductive Queen of the Damned, a long-awaited novel that picks up where The Vampire Lestat left off more than a quarter of a century ago to create an extraordinary new world of spirits and forces—the characters, legend, and lore of all The Vampire Chronicles.

The novel opens with the vampire world in crisis… vampires have been proliferating out of control; burnings have commenced all over the world, huge massacres similar to those carried out by Akasha in The Queen of the Damned… Old vampires, roused from slumber in the earth, are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn vampire-mavericks in cities from Paris and Mumbai to Hong Kong, Kyoto, and San Francisco.

As the novel moves from present-day New York and the West Coast to ancient Egypt, 4th century Carthage, 14th century Rome, the Venice of the Renaissance, the worlds and beings of all The Vampire Chronicles—Louis de Pointe du Lac; the eternally young Armand, whose face is that of a Boticelli angel; Mekare and Maharet; Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and ultimate fixer from the secret Talamasca; and Marius, the true Child of the Millennia, along with all the other new seductive, supernatural creatures—come together in this large, luxuriant, fiercely ambitious novel to ultimately rise up and seek out who—or what—the Voice is and to discover the secret of what it desires and why…

And, at the book’s center, the seemingly absent, curiously missing hero-wanderer, the dazzling, dangerous rebel-outlaw—the great hope of the Undead, the dazzling Prince Lestat…

Titan’s Gothic Horror Series Alisik Gets Animated with a New Trailer

Published

on

Back in October we told you about Alisik, a Gothic tale from Titan Comics’ Statix Press imprint that explores the afterlife; and now we’re back with a new trailer for the series to share along with another cover and a few interior pages.

From the Press Release:
Written by Hubertus Rufledt with haunting art by Helge Vogt, Alisik is a cross between Emily the Strange and Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book – a beautiful dark and Gothic tale of mortality and what happens after death.

“Alisik started as a short animation I did during my time at Disney – something different, a bit darker, but not horror. Hubertus liked it so much that we wanted to make a comic series out of it,” said Alisik co-creator and artist Helge Vogt. “Alisik became a part of my life. It’s the best I’ve done so far, and I’m thrilled that it’s coming out in English!

Featuring an all-new cover by superstar artist Junko Mizuno (Ravina the Witch?), Alisik #1 will hit stores and digital devices on February 28, 2018.

Synopsis:
When Alisik wakes up alone in a cemetery, she thinks she’s in the middle of a nightmare. Terrified, she flees into the night but realizes she is invisible to everyone she meets. She really is dead, with no memory of how it happened… and only the ghostly residents of the graveyard can help her unravel the mystery of her afterlife.
