Next month, The Chromatic Fantasy by H.A. will be published by Silver Sprocket. The mature readers title features a deal with the devil, queer transmasc romance and a breathtaking aesthetic.

The Chromatic Fantasy promises to be “steamy, funny, and full of adventure.” And the artistic style, reminiscent of stained glass and illuminated manuscripts, will be complemented by the 312-page softcover’s golden gilded page edges. Scroll down to the bottom of the article to take a look at The Chromatic Fantasy today, in advance of the graphic novel’s publication on October 18th, 2023.

The Chromatic Fantasy

Here’s the description of The Chromatic Fantasy from the publisher:

“Jules is a trans man trapped in his life as a nun. The devil that the convent guards against offers him a deal to escape: an illicit tryst and lifelong possession. Jules takes the deal, and begins his new life as a criminal who’s impervious to harm. He soon meets Casper, another trans man and a poetic thief, and together they steal, lie, and cheat their way through bewildering adventures, and develop feelings for each other along the way. But as Jules and Casper’s relationship deepens, so does the devil’s jealous grasp.

“A gorgeously drawn graphic novel reminiscent of stained glass and illuminated manuscripts, telling a story of queer transmasc romance, daring adventure, and (literally) fighting your demons.”

And here’s the author’s bio:

“H.A. is a cartoonist originally from New York State. His work is colorful, campy and surreal, and combines fantasy with mundanity. He focuses on writing fun stories about queer protagonists with an emphasis on trans men. Find H.A. on Twitter & Instagram: @dirtcup_art”
