Cradle of Filth has teamed up with both Incendium and Heavy Metal Entertainment for thier new comic book anthology series Maledictus Athenaeum. The anthology will begin as a five-issue series, with the first print edition of each issue will be released as a prestige format limited edition collectible comic book, featuring cardstock covers, specialty foil treatments, glossy pages, and individual numbering.
Each first printing will be limited to 2,500 copies for $16.66, and are available to order here.
“Cradle of Filth collaboration with Incendium for the forthcoming comic series and action figures provides an incredible opportunity for fans to indulge and explore the mythologies and murk at the heart of the band’s lyrical compositions,” said vocalist Dani Filth.
“As an avid collector of Horror figures for decades now – citing the enclosing walls and shelves of my home crammed with toys and memorabilia as an example – I was only too eager to embrace this emphatic union with a company that is as excited about bringing our brand of lascivious Gothic darkness to glorious undeath as we are.”
Cradle of Filth will release their new album Existence is Futile later this year. A single and an announcement regarding the band's new keyboardist is expected soon.
