Work continues apace on the film adaptation of Tad Caldwell and the Monster Kid. I saw a teaser trailer recently and it looks fantastic.  I am also writing a sequel to the original graphic novel. It takes place two years later. Nathan is dealing with the trauma of nearly being killed and has taken to the airwaves as a pirate radio host. It should be out sometime next year. 

 

I will be returning to the world of Cradle of Filth in November with the fifth issue of Maledictus Athenaeum from Incendium/Opus. This time, I will be splitting the narrative with Holly Interlandi to tell the story of Lilith, as depicted in Cradle of Filth's classic Darkly, Darkly Venus Aversa. Menton3 will be painting the interiors.
