There has been much speculation over the last month or so about a project known as Teenage Satan. The Twitter feed had been hinting at a debut at Boston Comic Con and today at the show the project was unveiled in a panel on women at comics.
Teenage Satan is a webcomic slated to debut in September. The art is by rising star Stephanie Buscema. The book is written by the team of Marsha Cooke and Candis Cooke. This is the first project for Marsha, wife of award-winning comic creator Darwyn Cooke.
Webcomics have become an important platform for female creators in the past few years. Creators such as Kate Beaton, Danielle Corsetto and Faith Erin Hicks are producing excellent, author-owned content with visibility that is larger, in some cases, than that of traditional floppy comics. Beaton’s Hark a Vagrant site has a half million unique visitors each month.
The all-female Teenage Satan creative team will tell the story of, as the title implies, a teenage devil. Fourteen year of Luc Satan is the son of the devil and a new student at Hades high school. Characters include his parents, best friends and love interest. The art is rich and features Buscema’s retro pin-up meets cartoon style.
In addition to the webcomic there will also be an application and gaming platform. Find out more at www.teenagesatan.com
