Zenescope has announced a new title called Salem’s Daughter by sending out this promotional piece:
Now, there’s nothing unusual about some pneumatic blowup doll wearing a bustier and garter belt as a costume, but I was somewhat surprised by the sheer obviousness of what they’ve done to her “skirt”. Yes, they’ve put a hole right in the middle of it to better highlight the peekaboo cootch effect.
I don’t think I need to tell any of this blog’s reader that fabric doesn’t rip that way. Cloth rends under stress — was something rubbing just that area really really hard for a long time?
Due out in March, the book is described as follows, typos and errors intact:
The comic follows two main characters, the first is Anna Williams, an out-casted young woman with extraordinary powers she is just beginning to realize and the other is Braden Cole, a gunslinger looking for redemption. The two team up and attempt to help strangers who are dealing with supernatural and terrifying occurrences. Zenescope VP and series writer Ralph Tedesco (GRIMM FAIRY TALES, SE7EN) explains the comic as “X-FILES meets BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER set in the late 1800s. This series will put a brand new spin on American folklore and mythologies such as the Leeds Devil, the Headless Horseman, famous hauntings, werewolves, demons and the list goes on. At the same time we’re giving readers a new stylistic vision of 19th century east coast America.” says Tedesco.
Expect to see more of this kind of thing. As Bluewater Productions Publisher Darren G. Davis told the Pulse, “We are bringing back the T&A into our comics. It was said to me to do that because that would help sales.”
