Mythic Delirium 1.4: announcing contents, cover and a special debut

February 11th, 2015 No Comments

Mythic_Delirium_1_4_coverI’m thrilled to be able to reveal the cover and contents for the next issue of Mythic Delirium — Number 1.4, April-June 2015. This is the issue that will mark two years of our zine’s reincarnation as a newfangled digital thing.
 
I’m also honored to actually have the bragging rights to the following bit of news: this upcoming cover marks the American debut of Italian sequential artist Elena de’ Grimani, creator of the vampire comic book and character Rigel, published by Panini Comics/Marvel Italy. Elena both writes and draws her storylines; other fantasy titles she’s created with a Gothic theme include Tinebra and Luna.
 
She’s also a fan of the German industrial metal band Rammstein, something she has in common with us. Italian music magazine La Repubblica XL has published her portraits of the band members.
 
Anita and I pride ourselves on recruiting an international cast for our show, and we’re thrilled to have extended our penchant for important debuts to the visual art side of our publication.
 
Welcome, Elena!
