I’m excited to announce that the very first publication from Heretical Sexts is now available. My Dream Date with a Villain is a collaboration between 14 staggeringly talented artists (including me–always including me) who’ve detailed their imaginary romantic encounters with nefarious characters from fiction and history.
What characters are included, you may ask? Ultra Violent editor Art Ettinger romances Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks. Comedian Kevin Maher is horrified to learn that the Hamburglar is a 9/11 Truther. Christianne Benedict experiences the brutal hand of Doctor Doom. I reveal my ONE TRUE PAIRING with Udo Kier Dracula (it’s not me, in this case).
In additional IT IS ABOUT ME AND ALSO OTHER EXTREMELY TALENTED PEOPLE I KNOW news, I’m excited to be a part of this Sunday’s Brooklyn Brain Jam. This event pulls together a number of awesome NYC-based events, including Kevin Geeks Out, Big Quiz Thing, Nerd Nite and Story Collider. It’s taking place at the Bell House, which is tripping me out because the last events I attended there were a Death in June show and a taxidermy contest. I hope to uphold this tradition of the bizarre. The organizers have been lovely enough to let me sell copies of My Dream Date with a Villain on-site, so swing by, say hi and get a copy of the zine into your sweaty little hands.
But hey, don’t believe ME that this event’s gonna be awesome–believe me as I’m quoted in the New York Times! Who knew the Grey Lady was interested in hearing this hag talk about Turkish knock-off movies?
