Additional Information

British extreme metallers Cradle of Filth have finally crossed the murky and treacherous depths between music and comics--a feat oft attempted, but rarely achieved with the power, elegance, and literary fire of The Curse of Venus Aversa. Based on a story by Dani Filth and New Orleans comic book author Kurt Amacker (Dead Souls, The 69 Eyes: Helsinki Vampires), the tale drags readers back to the cold, dark days of Victorian England. After the murder of his lover Gabrielle, the salacious poet Lord Daniel Impudicus faces down authorities, hoards of vampires, an ancient goddess, and his own demons. This 80-page graphic novel features stunning black and white art by Monty Borror,covers by Jamie Huntley and Tim Lattie

I got the original signed copy back through the kick-starter campaign and loved the direction, artwork and story. Everything melded together perfectly. Seeing as how I consider myself a literature nerd, and was (coughs) sometimes a comic book reader as well, you can say I have an appreciation for most things cool and nerdy. Felt, I could accurately do a review, since I have read it and also part of its charm is the feelings the images evoke as well. One of the most touching panels I would say as far as art (and even how the story flowed) [not exactly a spoiler alert, but stop reading if you feel it might be]...but the panel where our protagonist goes back to see the room Gabrielle was found in, was incredibly moving to me...but then again I can be a sentimental person sometimes anyway. Oh, there's plenty of stuff male audiences would like about it as well, but I'm just saying, I personally think there's something for everyone in it. Of course, if you aren't fond of like Gothic...

One of the best graphic novels! The story was great and the black and white artwork was amazing. Dani Filth really outdid himself on this one!
I doubt that anyone who isn't a fan of Cradle of Filth would be looking at this, but just in case you know nothing about this item, let me describe it. “The Curse of Venus Aversa” is a small comic story that was inspired by the band, Cradle of Filth. However, this story does not directly feature the band at all (not exactly, anyway). In fact, the story involves a brand new fictional protagonist, although there are many references and themes that are drawn directly from CoF's previous works. So, people who were expecting a story featuring the band will be disappointed. I, however, liked it well enough.

Story-wise, the book feels very Victorian-Gothic in style, but with the band's trademark cheesiness filtered over it. Without spoiling anything, I'll say that I found it entertaining enough, but it also felt a little lacking in closure. I don't know if a second issue is planned, but I doubt it. Oh well, in that case, I guess you could say it has an open... Read more
