Check out this marvelous preview of Recipes for the Dead: Issue 2: Apricot Asylum drawn and enchanted by the frakin’ awesome Allison Strom. This crazy thing was painted using the Copic markers that those wonderful people sent to her as a present. Between Allison’s artgenius and Copic’s generosity, I feel like Hannukah has come a full week early.
We’ve all been waiting for this. Well, I have, anyway… Recipes for the Dead: Issue 2 is finally going live! Right (here).
It’s called Recipes for the Dead: Issue 2: Apricot Asylum. Or as per abbreviation RftD:I2:AA. Can you remember all that?
The multi-talented artist behind the new art will be Allison Strom. And I’m really excited; looking at her work makes me really thankful that I assented to the hiatus and searched for an artist as good as the original. Honestly, working with Allie has been a blessing and I can’t wait to show everyone the work she’s been doing with the beloved characters.
If you haven’t seen the first issue, I’m now giving it away for the mere donation of $1. I do hope everyone enjoys it!
The lovely Kmye put up her own preview of Queen of Paint back at her blog: Mais Je Reve… She starts out in French, but do not worry, she translates herself a few paragraphs down. Enjoy her sublime drawings of the Queen herself, her husband and the evil creatures that surround them.

I created a facebook page for Greentea Publishing and it’s in the righter-most column. The page has a few preview pictures from both To Stop Dreaming of Goddesses and RftD. Now go and “like” it! You know you want to…

Excerpt: It reads like a disturbing Sandman story, with gods and goddesses playing at their games, and this time they are more vicious with each other than they are with their human chesspieces.
So happy that people seem to like it!
My new kickstarter project launches today right here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/68620062/to-stop-dreaming-of-goddesses-a-comic-book-by-vera
I have a special love for that story- it was my debut comic book story that came out in an anthology called Siren in 2009. Unfortunately, due to financial and copyright problems, after the book sold out, it never got reprinted.
Although we fought for the rights to reprint all of Siren, we couldn’t get everyone on board and thusly had to scrap the whole thing. Finally, after waiting for a long time, Ben Jelter (the artist) and I decided to re-issue the our own story as a one-shot comic book. There just wasn’t anything else left to do other than rescue To Stop Dreaming from sinking into obscurity and this is our attempt.
So, check out the project, see the video in which I dress up (or is that just what I wear around the house?) and maybe contribute. Ben and I would be extremely grateful, thank you!
