Meet Source Point Mondays: Aisha


 Source Point Press recently had the honor of having one of fans cosplay the title character in our flagship comic series, Jack of Spades. Not only did she do an amazing job bringing Jack of Spades to life, but she also  introduced the character to many new fans at the MCM Expo in Glasgow, Scotland. We are forever indebted to Aisha for choosing one of our characters to cosplay and for being such an awesome fan. Here's a little more about the amazing Aisha.



Aisha is currently a student and is from Scotland. She said she became a fan of SPP because "I love all things horror including old movies, new movies and books. which drew me to Source Point Press' books and collections of short stories. I discovered the Jack of Spades and instantly enjoyed it! Another SPP work I enjoyed was A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore as I love Poe."

Hard to believe from the photos but this was her first time cosplaying. 


This cosplay (see photo) was for Scotland's MCM Expo in Glasgow in September. 

Aisha mentioned "Although new to cosplaying, from making the costume to wearing it to MCM the whole experience was a lot of fun and I look forward to doing it again! One is with Wednesday Addams, the other is with Jack and Oogie Boogie from Nightmare Before Christmas and the last one is me and my friends. "

Rampant


Official Press Release

Joshua Werner’s Rampant tells the Origin of Werewolves



Everything you thought you knew about werewolves is about to change...


Source Point Press has announced they will be publishing the horror novella "Rampant" by Joshua Werner, scheduled to be released in early September. Werner’s werewolf tale will kick off the beginning of Source Point’s fall releases of creator-owned books and comics, and an anthology of werewolf stories, poems, and artwork will be released soon after.

Joshua Werner is the author of The Brutality of Fact and Adoration for the Dead, as well as such popular short stories as Osiris and The Invention. After taking a hiatus to focus on his illustration work, Werner returns to the writing arena with Rampant. Set in the 18th Century Swiss Confederacy, Rampant tells the tale of a young man who stumbles upon a family’s terrible secret that will change his life forever, and will reveal lycanthropy’s true origins. “It’s a very ambitious story,” says the author, “and it dives deep into the roots of the werewolf curse, offering a brand new origin to the folklore that’s deeply embedded in our real history.”

Writer and literary critic Kasey Pierce (KosmicKasey.com) spoke enthusiastically of the book in the foreword she wrote for Rampant. “Joshua Werner’s tale of tragedy, heartbreak, and bloodlust is an outstanding homage to the Gothic era of horror,” she said. “His literary descriptions created a realm that devoured my senses and left me hungry for more.”

“While this story is most definitely a werewolf tale, fans of classic horror will be interested to learn that Rampant also ties in seamlessly with Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein,” says author Joshua Werner. “The story takes place in a small village that lies between two of the primary locations in Frankenstein, Geneva and Ingolstadt, and takes place during the same time.” Fans of Mary Shelley’s classic can expect to find multiple nods to her tale in Rampant, “and perhaps more,” says Werner.


Accompanying the story are multiple illustrations drawn by the author, done in a style similar to woodcuts of the time period, as well as a map of the village highlighting locations pertinent to the narrative. There are also two afterwords by Werner; one discussing the story’s connection to Frankenstein and another that separates the facts and real history within the story from the fiction.

The book will be available for sale on Amazon, Storenvy, and other online retailers first, followed by select stores shortly after, and the first signing will take place at Grand-Con in Grand Rapids, MI Sept. 19th. More information can be found at www.SourcePointPress.com, www.twitter.com/SourcePtPress, and www.facebook.com/SourcePointPress.
