INSEXTS #1 (Marguerite Bennett / Ariela Kristantina)

La jeune scénariste Marguerite Bennett (A-Force, DC Comics Bombshells) voit dans le nouvel éditeur AfterShock l’occasion de s’atteler à sa première série régulière: InSeXts.

Illustrée par Ariela Kristantina (Deep State), la série, décrite comme une aventure « d’horreur érotique », raconte l’amour naissant entre deux femmes à l’époque Victorienne, une Lady et sa servante. Ensemble, elles se découvrent un monstre intérieur qui leur permet de se venger des gens qui leur ont fait du mal.

InSeXts #1 sort le 9 décembre.

[quote]It’s an unabashedly sensual and sexual story. As far as the period, I’ve had a preoccupation with the Victorian era in terms of how its obsessions and repressions created the modern era. I have no rose-colored glasses for it, and the romanticization of it has annoyed me before, but it fascinates me all the same.

You had contemptuous, murderous, destructive imperialism that ushered in a modern global society; you had gender roles that claimed to venerate women as « angels of the house » by crushing them into increasingly rigid domestic spheres; you had absurd prudish public values underscored by one of the highest percentages of sex workers in recorded history – 1 for every 12 adult males in London. The dualities and hypocrisies – social, sexual and psychological – have always compelled me, in and of themselves, and then in what they created and left lingering through the 20th Century.
