DO WHAT THOU WILT!
ALEISTER CROWLEY (AKA BLACK SABBAT) PLOTS DRACULA’S DOWNFALL
In the fourth volume of Requiem Vampire Knight: Vampires Ball, Black Sabbat (Aleister Crowley on Earth) visits the Arch Hierophant at the Great Pyramid of the Archeologists to plot their imminent coup against Count Dracula. As the Arch Hierophant ‘dresses for dinner’, his eccentricity – even on such a twisted planet as Resurrection –impresses Black Sabbat: “I see now why people say you make their skin crawl.”
Meanwhile, Torquemada the Werewolf is trying to bury Requiem like a bone (so he can eat him later) and Kobold the Dwarf is almost seized and destroyed as an illegal object at the Necropolis Space Port Customs house. Count Dracula, unaware of the conspiracy against him, celebrates another victory on the battlefield by holding the most opulent and hedonistic event of the year: The Vampires Ball.
This latest digital release on Comixology continues to wow, with fully painted artwork from Olivier Ledroit, and all the crazy, twisted, satirical humour you expect from Pat Mills. Also featuring bonus material never before published in English: Resurrection Incognita – an eight-page gallery featuring the weird and wonderful denizens of the hell planet Resurrection.
On the 14th of October, volume 7 of the French edition of Charley's War (La Grande Guerre de Charlie, Delirium) will be issued (with an exclusive introduction written by Jacques Tardi), as well as a 10 pages portfolio of Joe Colquhoun's art (see this previous article for illustrations).
The culmination point will be reached two days later, October the 16th, as Pat Mills will attend the opening of the exhibition dedicated to Charley's War at Le Musée de la Grande Guerre de Meaux.
Finally let's pinpoint a very interesting interview of Pat Mills in the crowd funding To Arms! anthology issued in September.
