Andolfo, whose known for her work on Sweet Paprika, Mercy and Unnatural, will explore the worlds of fame and pop stars, with that horror/comedy twist she’s become known for.
“With each of my series I love conjuring new fictions of fantasy and wonder wrapped around some of the hottest sociological issues we face in reality,” Andolfo said. “Blasfamous picks apart what it means to worship—whether it’s a prophet or popstar. It’s also a new opportunity to draw some of the most lavish and exhilarating spectacles of my career, with an oversized canvas to make every page truly sing.”
Here’s how the publisher describes the series:
In a world where pop stars have ascended to divinity and the masses bow in veneration to a new generation of viral superstars, angels and demons revel in a spotlight that grants them unimaginable power. Clelia, the reigning queen of pop, finds her throne shaken by a newcomer radiating with enigmatic charm. As the public eye threatens to wander, Clelia and her demonic agent, Father Lev, are thrust into a battle for dominance on this exhilarating stage of music and mysticism. How far will they go to defend Clelia’s hot streak and unravel the mystery of this sensational threat?
