In 2002 indie adult comics publisher Sin Factory (an imprint of Radio Comics) produced the first volume of an adult comic anthology featuring the Egyptian God Anubis. Called Anubis: Dark Desire and featuring the art of Heather Bruton, Dark Natasha, Sara Palmer, and Diana Harlan-Stein, it was wildly popular and the initial sales rush at its first convention was something Sofawolf noticed and dreamed of emulating one day. The series went on to encompass a total of four volumes, adding the talents of Terrie Smith and Michele Light to the original slate of artists, and concluded in 2008. Many of the early volumes have been out of print for many years, and have become nearly impossible to find.
Sofawolf Press is happy to announce this anthology collecting nearly the entire run of comics from the original volumes (19 comics, over 165 pages) along with much of the original single-page art and a gorgeous new cover by Dark Natasha and Blotch. The stories range from comic to dramatic in style, feature a variety of sexual orientations, and are fine examples of the indie adult comics genre of the period as drawn by many of the finest pioneer artists of the fandom.
While most of the original material (apart from the covers) was drawn and printed in black and white, a collection as historic as this felt like it deserves more. It deserves color! Through the support of many of Anubis's fans, our Kickstarter campaign to publish this collection in full color was successful. Now that the Kickstarter is complete, we are making the books (in both hardcover and softcover format) available for general purchase.
Anubis: Dark Desire is intended for an adult audience only and contains explicit sexual material. It will not be for sale to persons under the age of 18.
