Gauze Interview

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

Coming later this year from Arcana Comics is GAUZE. We spoke with writer, Gerrin Tramis, and Arcana Studios’ publisher, Sean O’Reilly, about the project.

The Big Bad Wolf: Tell us about the comic, GAUZE.

Sean O’Reilly: I met Gerrin at Emerald City Comic Con and we started talking about The Cube and it’s director. Gerrin was a film student at the time and we talked about filming a short that would look cool and smart. GAUZE comicGerrin Tramis: Time passed and I pitched the idea to Sean O’Reilly over at Arcana Studios and he said, “let’s do the comic book”. That was basically all she wrote. The story revolves around a group of very unique individuals who are all in someway shape or form connected to a mysterious serial killer who wraps his head in medical gauze. That’s it in a nutshell.

Sean O’Reilly: We actually did film the original Gauze as a short in Seattle (which was VERY fun), but the world Gerrin created was so much more than a short and we developed this world and then took it to the next level enjoying the medium of a comic book with the GREAT Dave Hamann.

The Diva’s reviews are in and it looks like she belongs in the spotlight!

Paperback Reader reviewer, Moya Dawson, praises writer, Frank LaPerch, on his brilliant job of handling the dialogue and that Ash Jackson has combined the hellish vampire look with a tough girl attitude.

Broken Frontier reviewer, Dave Baxter, says: “It’s a charming book, and readers will get their money’s worth per issue.”

Comic Monsters.com says: “- you get a good mix of storyline and a big shot of action.”

Jaded Expressions reviewer, Thomas Tan, says: “LaPerch does a solid job juggling two storylines that are rich enough to both warrant their own books.” and “Each panel leaps off the page in a wonderfully kinetic and vibrant burst of energy that isn’t content to just show a hot chick in black leather.”

The 4 issue series created and written by Frank J LaPerch and illustrated by Ash Jackson, tells the tale of Jessica Evelyn Murphy, better known to the public as Eve, A-list celebrity. However, what the public doesn’t know is Eve lives a dual life battling vampires, witches, and vampires at night. If juggling these two lives wasn’t problem enough, her agent just signed her up to appear in a 24/7 reality show. The entertainment world and the supernatural world collide in this fun, action-packed new series from Arcana Comics.

Now what’s a vampire diva without a Movie Premiere? Arcana Comics has released a brand new trailer with a look into what’s in store for everyone’s favorite vampire diva. The trailer also features the hit tune “Nobody Likes You When You’re Dead” by Liverpool punk sensation, Zombina and The Skeletones!
