Antonio J. Manzanedo’s Infernal Executioner
Planning the next two installments of Dyscrasia Fiction.
Working Title of one: Orphan Maker
Initial Blurb: The mischievous necromancer Doctor Grave has a Rule: “To raise one family, you must sacrifice another.” The golem strives to be a family man with his three arisen daughters, but the independence he espouses may backfire.
Context: Orphan Maker has many dual meanings in a world full of broken families, but it is also the name of an magical ax (akin to Ferrus Eviscamir and Ferrus Hewnmaw).
Chronology: This picks up right after Spawn of Dyscrasia's epilogue, in which Dr. Grave raises three daughters from clay.
Cover Art: TBD. If I can save funds, I would love to strike a commission with Daniel Landerman again (he illustrated Helen's Daimones).
For inspiration, I have been awing over Antonio J. Manzanedo’s Infernal Executioner. I connected with Antonio J. Manzando and am able to license it.
- The Ax is very similar to my depiction of Orphan Maker.
- The "Executioner"'s white skin and scar on chest actually match Doctor Grave's clay/earthy sin but he is usually depicted with an apron (of flayed faces).
- But is this Grave?
Do readers agree that this represent Doctor Grave?
Cover art ideas?
I post my own illustrations of Doctor Grave that appear in Lords of Dyscrasia:
