Comic Book Divas Publishing is very excited to announce that Nora Tarr, creator and writer of “Deidre Dark’s Delightful Dolls” and the upcoming second issue of the series Deidre Dark’s Delightful Dolls: Coup De Grace” will be appearing at the Boston Comic Con 2015.
This will be Nora’s very first comic book convention appearance and she is excited to bring her comic book to the Boston Comic Con 2015; she will be there to draw fans into her comic book world featuring her character Deidre Dark. Nora Tarr has created one of the most unusual comic book series we have read, it’s not only a fun read but also it will challenge everyone’s perspective.
This will not only be Nora’s first appearance at a convention, but she will be debuting both her first issue “Deidre Dark’s Delightful Dolls” and the second issue “Deidre Dark’s Delightful Dolls: Coup De Grace” first time at the Boston Comic Con on July 31st-August 2nd 2015; she will be located at the artist/small press area of the convention at the Comic Book Divas Publishing table.
Dolls have been part of human life since the beginning of recorded time. Some were created in resemblance of religious or revered likenesses, others simple shapes used in rituals and spells. Most as playthings or make-believe friends or confidants for children. You will have to follow the story of Deidre and her Dolls to see what happens and who it happens to.
Everyone always has wonderful things to say about her. Humans are duplicitous in nature, Deidre no different, and is more than what meets the eye. She creates handmade dolls out of all sorts of items, cloth, wood, wax, a little twine or maybe hair, animal or bird feathers.
What is the evil-born power that Deidre has and is it used for treacherous deeds or just to set things right? Whatever it is, this power has something to do with the dolls. Dolls created in human form, some showing the beauty, some showing the more ugly side of humanity. Imagine, with a just a sprig of herb, a splash of spice, some ash and a strong touch of black or maybe white Magic, if you could change someone’s mind, alter a course, or even more…
You will have to follow the story of Deidre and her Dolls to see what happens and who it happens to.
Every evil needs to be witnessed, loved and adored, and everyone adores Deidre.
