first of all, I'm glad to announce that Hollow Press is publishing a new underground american artist, really underground, he has only an instagram page, an hidden gem that I haven't missed, fortunaly, he is Henri Dumas, and is making Virulent Vessels of Vesicating Vices comics somewhere within the United States.
if you just want taste him, you can try his two main comics (available separatly too):
V∴V∴V∴V∴ Den Dwellers #1

V∴V∴V∴V∴ ARCHIVE #1
Virulent Vessels of Vesicating Vices
This is a complete set containing all V∴V∴V∴V∴ comics.

If you buy this set you have yielded to the vesicating archive #1 becoming a limb of the V∴V∴V∴V∴ lodge. You don't need to know what it means. Reading Henri Dumas tales, you will just be conscious to be a limb of the lodge.

as best preview, watch this
also, I was so excited about Henri Dumas art that I shown his comics to the great artists Mat Brinkman and Tetsunori Tawaraya, they really enjoyed his comics and I'm proud to have got a couple of quotes:
"Downright disturbing detailed dreamworld drawings from Dumas, dare you dwell in the den?!" -Mat Brinkman
"It was a dim humid day of July, and the siamese suns were emitting freedom of darkness." -Tetsunori Tawaraya
as you can see Henri Dumas artworks are crazy, and obviously, as always, we have put some artwork for sale, they are selling very fast! Before the newsletter too, so I suggest you to buy your favorite soon.
You can buy them
* * Henri Dumas is really physically in doing art,
to watch one of his artworks in live is a weird experience,
so is not rare to find some piece of extra paper attached
above some panel, cut parts, deleted parts with
white ink, psychedelic additional paper parts,
sketches/doodles/notes on the back of the artwork etc...
So, welcome at the V∴V∴V∴V∴ lodge!
If it is not enough, I have another very important news, the first issue of LaurenceEngraver main serie, Aberration #1, is finally out, and is extremly cool, a very unguishing reading, but with a lot of action as in manga style and an horror sentimentalism story that will surprise you, from LaurenceEngraver backcover description:
"Hunt the blood for blood. For his instinct he runs, and bares his teeth when found. That is all he can do. And shall do it for eternity."
don't miss it, buy it,
and some pix of the book:
* this product is available both in ENGLISH and ITALIAN
original artworks available
just some pix to show you how much they are cool:
(this is the giant one, 70x50cm!!!)
that's all, I wish you a dark summer!
