Graphic Novel – Tales From the Black Circle

Paying homage to EC’s landmark line of horror comics, Tales From the Black Circle contains three tales of true life terror, all torn out of the pages of Norwegian Black Metal history. Rigorously researched using both primary and secondary sources (roughly 50% of written material is based upon direct quotes from individuals and interviews conducted for research purposes), these stories of frightful non-fiction will educate as well as entertain the reader who has an interest in black metal, EC horror, music history, crime, and comic books. It also comes with a read along soundtrack available on both cassette and download link. It also comes with a read along soundtrack available on both cassette and download link.
