Poe, Lovecraft, and the Inspiration of Young Readers!

June

16 hours to go on our Kickstarter campaign, and we are already starting promotion on issue 4! We are pleased to announce that comics superstar Jonboy Meyers is our cover artist for The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe issue 4! If you’ve been reading Marvel or DC Comics, you will surely recognize his name! We will reveal his stunning cover on May 1 at 10AM (EST), and we can’t wait to show you this amazing piece of art which is out-of-this-world fantastic! To say we are excited to see him cover a book featuring our Little Poe and Irving is an understatement! Jonboy is a great friend and we are huge fans of his work!

In other news, our next podcast for The Raven Lunatics promises to be special! Our guest will be none other than New York Times Bestselling author,  Matthew Pearl! Pearl is the author of The Poe Shadow (which we loved!) which centers around the mysterious death of the famed poet and author, Edgar Allan Poe. Chris Semtner, Matthew, and I will be discussing the various theories surrounding Poe’s death, so you will not want to miss this episode! The podcast will drop on March 14 at noon(EST)!

This is why we do what we do here at Hocus Pocus Comics! Matthew Laskavy is part of our next generation of readers, and being able to inspire him and young readers to explore new worlds through the medium of comics is exhilarating and deeply humbling!

As you can see, there is a quite a bit going on at Hocus Pocus Comics, so keep watching! 2018 started with a bang and we don’t see us slowing down anytime soon! As always, thank you for the tweets, retweets, shares, pledges, pre-orders, and likes! You guys rock!

Rebecca and I had a super busy week and the weekend was no walk in the park, either. But, hey, self-publishing is totally worth it. We have invested our blood, sweat, tears, time, money, and hearts into HP Comics, and I hope our love and dedication shines brightly in every story we tell.

Thank you for your continued support, friends. We couldn’t do this without our amazing patrons and readers!
