Blood Curdling! Spine-Tingling! Unearthly!

In Flesh and Spirit

In Flesh and Spirit

A gothic odyssey intensely influenced by classic horror cinema and 1970s comics and backed by an exhilarating Goth/electronica/metal soundtrack, In Flesh and Spirit gives comic, cinema and music fans alike something to really sink their teeth into.

Written by Baron Misuraca, frontman of the renowned Gothic Metal band Vasaria, In Flesh and Spirit chronicles the origin and ongoing saga of Baron Misuraca, vampire. Originally a condemned 14th century musician now reborn in contemporary New York City, Baron is slave to two masters-an insatiable lust for blood and a spiritual quest for redemption. Additionally, In Flesh and Spirit unleashes an array of all-new awe-inspiring femme fatale characters lead by the ultimate antagonist Apathess, modeled by Sci-Fi supermodel Stacy E. Walker.

In Flesh and Spirit features artwork by the artist dream (or perhaps nightmare?) team assembled specifically for this undertaking. DC/Heavy Metal/Vampirella artist extraordinaire Alex Horley captures the very essence of undeath with his ominous cover. Penciler/inker David G. Williams and colorist Jarreau Wimberly bring In Flesh and Spirit to life, sensuously rendering its interior with a haunting noir aesthetic.

The premiere issue of In Flesh and Spirit is available for inhuman consumption through Haven Distributors in the latest edition of COMICS!, at and at various stores in the New York tri-state area…

Bare your throats and relinquish your souls…

Press Quotes:

In Flesh and Spirit returns the spirit of seventies greats such as Gonzalez and Ploog, and offers something not easily found today; integrity in art and story. I cannot recommend it more highly.
Kevin Noel Olson – COMICS! Haven Distributors catalog

Gothic sensibility, Vampires, the undead, and rock and roll…what more can you ask for!
Bone Digger – Horror News

This book has GREAT promise so far, and I can’t wait to see where this title goes!
Keith Huening – Horror Comics Review

Love the darkly delicious and somewhat sublime feel the illustrations evoke and the way the panels and splash pages are presented, as they add to the aesthetic flow of time within this piece seemingly effortlessly-truly a treat to read!
G.L. Giles -The Vampire Vignettes

Written and published for fans of horror cinema and dark music, In Flesh and Spirit weds the NYC goth-metal scene to classic Hammer horror flicks and 70’s publications like Vampirella.
Dave Wolff – Good Times Magazine

(In Flesh and Spirit is recommended for “mature readers”)
