The Long Awaited Return Of Madam Satan


Madam Satan: Deadly Origins Kickstarter written by Elizabeth Wheeler and drawn by Shelby Robertson.  Kickstarter ends on the 25th of February and to be published in May 2015.

Elizabeth Wheeler writes,

From the depths of Hell she has been reborn.  Satrinah Morte is Madam Satan. Sent to our world by her Master, she is tasked with the harvesting of souls in order to secure his place as Enslaver of the World. One man stands in her way: Detective DuMonde.


Michael DuMonde has spent a lifetime trying to dull the nightmares plaguing him every night. After being called to the scene of a brutal murder at the hands of Satrinah he is sucked into the mysterious Order of Gaia and comes to realize his true purpose. As Madam seduces the souls out of men in Los Angeles, Michael will have to face an abattoir of horrors as he travels through the occult underground of L.A on his mission to send her back to where she belongs before can summon Hell to the City of Angels.


With the help of Special Agent Rois, DuMonde will have to find a way to get one step ahead of the Madam if he has any hope of protecting the city and saving it from its hellish future. Filled to the teeth with demons, fallen angels, and mystery, this graphic novel promises to be the start of a deeply twisted adventure.


Drawn and colored by established artist, Shelby Robertson with me, Elizabeth Wheeler, making mywriting debut, Satrinah Morte is resurrected from Hell as Madam Satan!

Originally published by Pep Comics in 1941, Madam Satan was only around for 6 issues before she was quietly pushed aside and replaced by the fun loving Archie.  She was never heard from again in comics until 2014 when she made a handful of small appearances in other books.  This will be the first time Madam Satan will have her own full length comic since her cancelation.  This all-new take on the Golden Age character  will cement her forever in the mind of the readers as the true Mistress of Hell.


After the successful launch and funding of a Kickstarter campaign in early 2014 for his self-published book '94, a tale about time traveling mercenaries sent back to the past to stop an absurd future, Shelby decided to flex his artistic muscles and take on one of the biggest projects of his career. While '94 was a throw-back to everything we claim to hate about 90s comics (but secretly love), Madam Satan: Deadly Origins is a detailed, fresh take on a Golden Age character. In a career spanning over 20 years, Madam Satan: Deadly Origins will be the first book both fully drawn and colored by Shelby Robertson.


The Kickstarter for Madam Satan: Deadly Origins will include a number of limited edition covers including an all-metal cover as-well-as all-metal trading cards from industry professionals including Skylar Patridge and Tyler Kirkam and a stretch goal for the graphic novel featuring a cover by Arthur Suydam of Marvel Zombies fame.  Special foil emblazoned t-shirts, flasks and a limited amount of 11×17 commission slots are also available.


As a special incentive for Bleeding Cool readers will be including the following special Bleeding Cool edition all-metal card for all pledges over 10 dollars.  Just send a message after you pledge mentioning that you heard about the Kickstarter on Bleeding Cool to have it included in your package!
