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…
