Let’s kick things off with a little Bayou Arcana, shall we?
As you may already know, Jen and I have been working on Irons in the Fire for an anthology called Bayou Arcana. Bayou Arcana: Volume 1. Songs of Loss and Redemption is a gothic horror anthology set in a fantastical swamp (in the American South) – you can read more about it here, but the good news is that British newspaper The Guardian featured it in a recent news story covering UK comic books, female creators and the gender gap in the industry. Bayou Arcana has a rather unique set up of being created by all-male writers and all-female artists, so it’s getting noticed by a lot of people and organisations, such as MTV and several other newspapers and magazines across the globe.
You can read the article here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/dec/28/women-comic-book-sexism. And the good man Lee Grice (from Small Press Big Mouth) scanned in the pages from when the article was printed a few weeks back:
Bayou Arcana is available for pre-orders by our publisher, Markosia, so if you pre-order it before 1st April 2012 you can get £3 off the cover price (£14.99)! This one is going to be popular, folks, so make sure you get your pre-orders in now by heading over to
There’s more to come on Bayou Arcana soon.
