View Full Version : Victorian Comic and Costume Contest.

Dusk Comic has always been a fan of the Gothic and Victorian Literature. So we present - The Trial And Tribulations of Miss Tilney - A Penny Dreadful in comic form, inspired by writers of the era. A love letter to Gothic, but more than original enough to stand on its own.

- The Trial And Tribulations of Miss Tilney -

Cub Reporter Henrietta Tilney is sent on her first assignment, to interview accused mass murderer Lord Beowulf Harwood. But young Henrietta quickly finds out there is much more to this story and its subject Lord Harwood. Will this plucky young reporter get her story and survive with her life in tact?

A Penny Dreadful in 3 parts!

Written by Duke David Doub
Art by Marchioness Jolene Houser
Colors by Countess Danielle Alexis
Everything Else by Vizcondesa Joamette Gil

The Miss Tilney Victorian Costume Contest

To show support for the book - The Trial And Tribulations of Miss Tilney - and celebrate the fashions and styles of the Victorian era, Dusk Comics is running a year long Victorian Costume Contest. At each convention Dusk Comics attends, we will hold a Victorian Costume Contest with a cash prize. Then the winner of each convention costume contest will be entered into a Grand Prize Costume Contest online at Duskcomics.com. Also for folks who cant visit us at shows, we will have an Online Costume Contest winner as well that will be entered into the Grand Prize Costume Contest. The Grand Prize winner will be announced on Dec 2nd.

Both the comic and the costume contest sound great.

I might try to enter a costume during A-kon. Do you happen to have more details about when and where at A-kon (or other cons for other people interested) this will take place?

We'll have a table in artist alley for all these shows. At A-Kon Dusk Comics will be with Literati Press, so look for their table and you'll find us.

Thanks a lot. I will make sure to stop by one of the three days in my Victorian gown. I will be wandering about at least for a bit in it with my friend in her Fall/Edwardian/my own imagination inspired gown I made for her.
