The Burning Church – a new project

Me, Michael DeShane and Jelena Đorđević are working on a new comic book project. A 4-issue horror mini-series to be collected into a nice, eerie graphic novel. Here’s some teasers.

The modern English word Hell is derived from Old English hel, and ultimately from Proto-Germanic *halja, meaning “one who covers up or hides something.

Crypt, from the Latin crypta, from the Greek κρύπτη, kryptē; meaning concealed.

Monster, from the Latin monstrare, meaning to show, to display, to demonstrate.

Devil, from Old English dēofol, via Greek diabolos ‘accuser, slanderer

    Whoa, I love this. Not only is the art amazing and dark (literally and figuratively-speaking, I mean), but I like learning the etymological roots of different words. Particularly creepy words. Heh heh.

      Thanks. Jelena’s style is absolutely perfect for this project. It’ll be an “artsy” horror book, with a lot of nods to both the gothic genre and the weird.
