|BLACK HOLE WIZARD is my new comic project!|
If you’ve had the misfortune of following the social media ravings of writer, Simon Berman or artist, Eliza Gauger over the past few months, you may well be asking yourself, “What the hell is Black Hole Wizard and what is wrong with these people?” We will attempt to answer the first question; the second would require a lot more time than we have right now.
Black Hole Wizard is a comic book intended as an excuse for us to explore the weirder recesses of science fiction and fantasy, the droning soundscapes of doom metal, and the new aesthetics of 21st Century occultism. It’s our hope to take these elements and meld them into a compelling attempt at recapturing the spirit of mid-century speculative fiction.
Simon Berman is a staff writer at Privateer Press where he works on their award winning tabletop games WARMACHINE, HORDES, and the Iron Kingdoms Full Metal Fantasy Roleplaying Game. He’s also written and directed a number of projects for Unhallowed Metropolis, the gas-mask chic role-playing game of Neo-Victorian horror.
Eliza Gauger is a decade-deep veteran of freelance illustrating and fine art, starting her career on the quaintly-infamous Book of Erotic Fantasy and clawing her way up through assignments with Legend of the Five Rings, Unhallowed Metropolis, Conclave Journal, the Proof newspaper, storyboard and graphic design on projects with Jhonen Vasquez, and gallery shows in Munich, Berlin, New York, and Seattle. Her most recent project was DEEP MAP PILOTS with Warren Ellis, a series of illustrated sci-fi vignettes.
We’re currently hashing out the first of our initial six issue story line but we’ll have more to share soon. We hope you’ll join us and our new acquaintance, Qutaybah of El’anscopé, the Black Hole Wizard, on this psychedelic journey into the Void.
