DSTLRY, the next-generation publisher redefining creator-owned comic books and collectibles, today revealed Blasfamous, a new horror-comedy comic series launching this December from Harvey Award-winning writer and artist Mirka Andolfo (Sweet Paprika, Mercy, Unnatural).
Spinning out of the 5-page story a “A Blessed Day” from DSTLRY’s debut release The Devil’s Cut, Blasfamous offers a biting, hilarious dissection of media idolation—asking the pivotal question: how many fans is your soul worth?
In a world where pop stars have ascended to divinity and the masses bow in veneration to a new generation of viral superstars, angels and demons revel in a spotlight that grants them unimaginable power. Clelia, the reigning queen of pop, finds her throne shaken by a newcomer radiating with enigmatic charm. As the public eye threatens to wander, Clelia and her demonic agent, Father Lev, are thrust into a battle for dominance on this exhilarating stage of music and mysticism. How far will they go to defend Clelia’s hot streak and unravel the mystery of this sensational threat?
Mixing the sacred and profane, Andolfo effortlessly merges the mythological urban fantasy of American Gods with the sardonic wit of The Good Place in a new dark series set in the glittering world of pop music.
“With each of my series I love conjuring new fictions of fantasy and wonder wrapped around some of the hottest sociological issues we face in reality,” Andolfo explains. “Blasfamous picks apart what it means to worship—whether it’s a prophet or popstar. It’s also a new opportunity to draw some of the most lavish and exhilarating spectacles of my career, with an oversized canvas to make every page truly sing.”
Blasfamous #1 features two open-order covers by creator Mirka Andolfo, with 1:10, 1:25, and 1:50 incentive variant covers to be revealed at a later date.
Blasfamous #1 is available now for pre-order and will be on sale at local comic shops and digitally via www.dstlry.co this December. Retailers can place print orders now through Lunar Distribution and Diamond Comic Distributors.
