Campi, Alex de: Parasocial

In the middle of the pandemic, a fading genre-TV actor, fresh from his long-running series' cancellation, collides with an obsessive fan at a Texas convention. When she lures him to her home, he'll have to put on the greatest performance of his life simply to survive until morning. Unless, of course, he's the real monster... Bestselling, critically-acclaimed duo Alex de Campi and Erica Henderson (DRACULA, MOTHERF**KER!) reunite for another stylish horror reinterpretation, this time the psychosexual thriller.

"Loved it. Misery in the social media age is the obvious reference, but it's smarter in its refusal to put creatives on a pedestal and dwells on our performances and the way we fail to see one another. It's also got a playful, petrifying approach to the medium, with a real understanding of the impressionistic effect of cartooning line, expert integrating of media... If you liked The Wicked + The Divine, you should be all over this." -Kieron Gillen

Über den Autor Campi, Alex de

Alex de Campi writes comics. She is best known for her critically-acclaimed teen survival thriller NO MERCY and the groundbreaking, digital-native comic VALENTINE. Her bestselling, criticially-acclaimed comics and graphic novels TWISTED ROMANCE with various artists, MAYDAY with Tony Parker, NO MERCY with Carla Speed McNeil, DRACULA MOTHERF**KER and PARASOCIAL with Erica Henderson, BAD KARMA with Ryan Howe, and SCRAPPER with Cliff Bleszinski and Sandy Jarrell are all published by Image Comics. She was nominated for an Eisner for her first comic work, Smoke, and it's all been downhill from there. Alex also directs music videos, and has worked with acts as diverse as Grand Duchy (Frank Black / Violet Clark), Joan As Police Woman, and Amanda Palmer to the retro-fabulous Puppini Sisters.

Alex's background is a three-whisky conversation and involves several continents. She is a single mother of an awesome daughter; they live in the Stephen Kingdom (Downeast Maine) with two dogs. She has an opinion on nearly everything. You can peruse them, along with stupid photos and memes, at @alexdecampi on most social media.
