Honourable Mention: Lamia Vol 2.

I have previously looked at Hushicho Phoenix’s Lamia: Baroness of Blood and was taken by the crisp art and tongue-in-cheek, camp humour of this fumetti homage, featuring the vampire Lamia and her gay sidekick Antonio.

Hushicho is soon to launch the second volume of the duo’s wacky and eroticised adventures over at the Lamia homepage (note, Lamia is not safe for work). The comic will be free to read and released over a period of time. If you can’t wait for the next instalment it will be sold in book form as well.

I have been lucky enough to be sent an advance viewing of the volume and thoroughly enjoyed it. In this volume Antonio is upset as characters are being killed in his favourite comic book and so he and Lamia employ the help of a witch to enter the comic book world in order that they might save two of his heroes. Whilst in there they make the acquaintance of the Disco Queen and…

Well, you are just going to have to wait but make sure you keep an eye out for the series launch and even, perhaps, pick up a printed copy too. But rest assured there is plenty of superhero satire and fumetti cheekiness that is sure to keep you entertained.
