Southern Gothic: Chapter Fifteen
Are you even ready for a brand new chapter of Southern Gothic? Well, keep all your parts inside the moving vehicle because we are about to take you for a RIDE! Welcome to Chapter Fifteen: The Unvanquished!
We are barreling toward the conclusion of the first volume of Southern Gothic, gentle reader. We understand if you need a second to catch your breath after this spine-tingling installment, so next month we’ll feature our reader correspondence column “The Purloined Letters!”
Do you have a serious beef with me? A question for the amazing team of artists who make this comic every month? A nerdy book joke? Send us a message! We love hearing from each and every one of y’all. If you get your message to us by October 1st, you may just be featured in next month’s “The Purloined Letters.” Comment below or write us at email@example.com. Please remember to include “Southern Gothic” in the subject and if you’re okay with your letter being published indicate “OKAY TO PRINT.”
Can I just take a second to tell you that this chapter includes one of my favorite pages Ezequiel has done so far? The first person to guess which page it is will receive the first-ever New Futurists no-prize!
Now let’s give a huge welcome to this chapter’s cover artist, MJ Hiblen! MJ is a WICKED talented illustrator and creator of fantasy art. His horror-infused illustrations consistently creep me out. But I first encountered his work at the height of the COVID pandemic in Holding The Line: Art Celebrating Frontline Workers and the NHS. MJ’s riffs on pop culture, politics, and current events always keep me coming back for more. Follow him on social media and maybe even consider treating yourself to a commission!
If you’re a paid subscriber, stick around for a look behind-the-scenes of the truly creepy cover MJ created for this chapter. You’ll also get a preview of next chapter’s cover with lines by me and colors by Rafael Grimaldi! We appreciate every single one of our subscribers, especially the folks who pay to read our work— thank you for keeping the lights on!
Alright, let’s get to it. Please remember that Southern Gothic is a horror comic and is not suitable for all readers. Chapter fifteen features depictions of blood, gore, alcohol abuse, supernatural horror, gun violence, arson, violence against animals, harsh language, familial violence, and supernatural horror. Reader discretion is advised.
