Alex De Campi & Erica Henderson's Parasocial, From Image in October
Alex de Campi and Erica Henderson have announced a new pandemic psychosexual horror graphic novel, Parasocial, being published by Image Comics in October.
Comic book creators and collaborators Alex de Campi and Erica Henderson have announced a new pandemic psychosexual horror graphic novel being published by Image Comics in October, called Parasocial. With the subtitle "like and survive". And if you are on social media, you can be a part of it.
"In the middle of the pandemic, a fading genre-TV actor, fresh from his long-running series' cancellation, collides with an obsessive fan at a Texas convention. When she lures him to her home, he'll have to put on the greatest performance of his life simply to survive until morning. Unless, of course, he's the real monster… Bestselling, critically-acclaimed duo Alex de Campi and Erica Henderson (DRACULA, MOTHERF**KER!) reunite for another stylish horror reinterpretation, this time the psychosexual thriller."
And Alex de Campi is recruiting. She tweets "and I have a new horror book out in October from @ImageComics & we need YOUR social media handles for our endpaper design! Please LIKE this tweet to consent to use your @ in PARASOCIAL! (it'll just say "@ your_name liked this", nothing weird) — also pls RT
That tweet has 624 likes so far, and 188 retweets, but I reckon there's still plenty of room if you want in.
And she also takes the time to remind us of their previous collaboration from 2020. "Also a reminder that this exists and I'm still really proud of it. From @ImageComics, my last collaboration with @EricaFails (Parasocial, our next one — see my TL — is also going to be in this nice, nice hardback format)"
"Vienna, 1889: Dracula's brides nail him to the bottom of his coffin. Los Angeles, 1974: an ageing starlet decides to raise the stakes. Crime scene photographer Quincy Harker is the only man who knows it happened, but will anyone believe him before he gets his own chalk outline? And are Dracula's three brides there to help him… or use him as bait? A pulpy, pulse-pounding graphic novel of California psych-horror from acclaimed creators ALEX DE CAMPI and ERICA HENDERSON."
