What happens when the cosmos and horror come together? This week in the Small Press Spotlight we find out in Horrorscope. The “dark mystery written in the stars” from West Wind Comics is an adaptation of a trilogy novel series of the same name by Brian Evans, Mark Andrew Biltz, and Helen Marie Bousquet.
Adapted as a graphic novel by Ferran Xalabarder, this installment is the first book of the mystery series. Read the synopsis below:
“This story is about Helen Wilson, a psychic who makes a living doing tarot readings for twenty-five bucks at her Naugatuck home. She is the heart of this choral story, full of great characters interlinked over time and space. A good person, living a humble life, Helen helps her neighbors and friends whenever she can. But when a case of wrong serendipity brings her in the radar of the most powerful family of mobsters in New York City, terrible and strange things will start to happen. Dark and powerful forces have been dwelling for eons in the starry skies above us, and an unaware and fragile humanity is at their mercy…
Horror, mystique, esotericism? …a story certainly difficult to classify.
Discover the mystery hidden beyond the stars.”
