"My Pretty Vampire"
Known for her bold colors, bolder characters, and retro throwback style, Katie Skelly has carved a niche for herself in the world of comic books. With her premiere book, “Nurse Nurse” and her latest release, “My Pretty Vampire” from Katie Skelly blends 70’s cult movie sleaze, European comic styling of Guido Crepax and Jean-Claude Forest with a modern sensibility. The result are comics that are elegant in their simplicity compared to many other over-designed art styles, but with stories rife with gleeful sex and violence.
Beyond the Longbox interviewed Katie Skelly on what she looks for in a protagonist, what comics are the building blocks of her work, and what it was like writing erotic comics with a Catholic upbringing.
