As a window into the world of Hungary in the early years of the 17th century, its politics and skullduggery, its untenable position on the front line of the conflict between the cross and the crescent, we believe Countess Báthory – The Scarlet Lady is far more compelling than the usual dry history text, gathering dust in an academic library. Mind you, we certainly sifted through a number of historical tomes, in both English and Hungarian, to piece together our story. We also went on the road. These photos were taken at Cachtice castle, in modern day Slovakia, (or Csejte as it would have been known in the Scarlet Lady’s time.)

These are the ruins of the castle where the so-called Blood Countess was said to have carried out the bulk of her unspeakable crimes. And now, 4 centuries after Erzsébet’s death, and after a decade of preparation, we are close to being able to launch Countess Báthory – The Scarlet Lady on a bloodthirsty (and, we hope, knowledge hungry) public. We just need a little push.

Well, the graphic novel crowdfunding page is off to a good start.  A few days in and we have around 10% of the funds! Keep spreading the word as the more we’re shared online the better our chances of being featured by Indiegogo. And thank you for listening, on a Sunday, bloody Sunday…
