(You will recall ‘The Beast’ was another of the Countess’s sobriquets). Anyway, here is the full package for The Scarlet Countess, photographed just moments before that first trip to the Post Office. The handwriting on the envelope is Sam Robinson-Horley’s. Zoom in close enough and you can see some of the cover letter and synopsis which accompanies the 28 pages of artwork. Tantalizing, isn’t it?

PS: A big thank you to the Hungarian Comics magazine Kilencedik, who published a story about us (in Hungarian) on Friday.

Aye, our sweet prints hath finally come. If you haven’t yet had the patience to scroll through THE SCARLET COUNTESS Chapter III PDF online, well then this slide show illustrates what a splendid folio we are sending off to graphic novel publishers of repute. Though we are not currently crowdfunding per se, for the right patron “of wealth and taste”, we could of course hurry the whole publication business along. Hint, hint.

Here she is, the Beast! (Another one of her epithets). THE SCARLET COUNTESS, our 28 page pitch for the world’s pre-eminent graphic novel publishers.  You can see too from the end pages we have a lot of people to thank, but authors Sam Robinson Horley and Scott Alexander Young are especially indebted to illustrator Tamás Vári and colorist  Máté Vadas.

Yes, we are now just waiting for prints of The Scarlet Countess booklet to come back from, who else, but the printers, so we can do our mail-out to the right graphic novel publishers. Meanwhile, another kind of Prince! He is Prince Gábor (Gabriel) Báthory. Nephew of the ‘Scarlet Countess’, and leader of Transylvania at the time of her arrest. Considered by the Báthory clan their last and best hope to place the crown of the Holy Roman Empire on the head of a true Hungarian warrior king. This is another one of Tamás Vári’s wonderful character sketches. Here he is dressed as if in his own quarters. In the panels for the graphic novel however, we get to see Gábor in full plate armor, sitting on a Transylvanian throne. All good things to those who wait…
