Dani Filth is the frontman for England’s extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth. The group’s music has always been explored the dark arts and the depths of horror. Now Filth has partnered with writer Kurt Amacker to make the transition into the comic book world with the new graphic novel, “The Curse of Venus Aversa”.
This 72-page graphic novel drags readers back to the cold, dark days of Victorian England, where the salacious poet Lord Daniel Impudicus faces down authorities, hoards of vampires, and an ancient goddess after the murder of his lover Gabrielle. The book is illustrated by Monty Borror, who delivers some phenomenally gruesome black-and-white artwork to bring this story to life on the printed page.
Rather than go the traditional route, Filth and Amacker have a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the production of the book. Fans can check out the “The Curse of Venus Aversa” campaign online at and pledge their support. With just a few days before the campaign closes, Filth and Amacker sat down with Bloody-Disgusting to spill all the gory details about “The Curse of Venus Aversa”. READ MORE
