"Nunsky (b. 1972) is a comics artist from the north of Portugal and has published most of his work in the Mesinha de Cabeceira zine. In 1997 he made an incredible 39-page comix for the 13rd issue and the 5th anniversary of this mutant zine. Actually this was the first professional looking book that Chili Com Carne Association made, starting an important publishing history in the Portuguese scene. The comix was entitled 88 and was a unique comix in the Portuguese panorama at the time – and still is nowadays! Not only the "psycho-goth" ambience was different from all Portuguese comics but also the graphic quality was astonishing for such artist coming from nowhere. It reminded the Love & Rockets and Charles Burns but had its own voice."
"Since Nunsky is such a lone wolf, almost nobody knows about him and his whereabouts. After the 88 comix he created a rock band called The ID's and that's it. Or that’s what we thought... In 2014 he returned with the graphic novel Erzsébet (published by Chili Com Carne), a 144-page black and white document of Erzsébet Bathory, the infamous Hungarian countess that slayed hundreds of young girls in search of the eternal youth. This book won the Best Drawing Prize in 2015 in the Amadora Comics Fest – the more important mainstream comics festival in Portugal. The book was appraised by music and comics critics but also by other artists..."
"So... in 2015 Nunsky is presenting this NADJA – VIRGIN TEENIE FROM HELL comix for all you fans of L.A. Hair Metal sleazy bands, RanXerox fucked up dystopians and heroin revivalists. This graphic novel is full color and it's a blast! It's published in Portuguese but we are putting out this poor one-color-only promotion edition in English because we want to find some publishers with balls to do this book somewhere in the world! So come on, take a speedball and contact us by e-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org] or facebook.com/nunskycomics."
And while the English version doesn't come out in full colour (we haven't heard any news about it yet), you can grab a copy of this very purple edition of this crazy horrific Christmas story!
