The full cover painting for the Politically InQueerect: Old Ghosts and Other Stories comic book.
This piece was inspired by common tropes in gothic romance novel cover art: the spooky house, the full moon, a single light on in one window, the sinister figure lurking in the background, and the alarmed protagonist attempting to flee.
Yeah, yeah. It’s what it looks like: Todd going shirtless to pander to thirsty comic book nerds who like hairy dudes. To be fair, Todd gets shirtless for several pages in Old Ghosts, so it’s not false advertising.
The version of this drawing that’s reprinted in the book is the one with the strategically-placed comic, so here, have the unaltered artwork.
This was a legit brand of wine. Pretty good stuff, too.
