Preview Comic Arts Brooklyn Debut Unholy Shapes By Annie Mok Inspired By Egon Schiele

I recently wrote about one of Annie Mok's books, Shadow Manifesto, that I discovered at the Locust Moon Comics Festival in Philadelphia. She has also contributed to the Vertigo Quarterly series and the one-shot horror anthology from Vertigo The Witching Hour.

Her new work, Unholy Shapes, will be debuting at Comic Arts Brooklyn (CAB) coming up this weekend. Unholy Shapes is the first book of a quarterly series, Ley Lines.

L. Nichols, one of the co-publishers of Ley Lines along with along with Kevin Czapiewski, describes Ley Lines and Unholy Shapes thus:

…dedicated to exploring the intersection of comics and the various fields of art & culture that inspire us. Particularly, I want to focus this series on things that are traditionally seen as "fine art" as a way to make these fields more approachable and to hopefully create some dialog around the inspirations of comics artists that come from outside comics. Annie's book is a mix of autobiography and Egon Schiele.

Here's our preview of Unholy Shapes, which you will be able to pick up at Comic Arts Brooklyn at table D23 (Grindstone Comics).
