  • Details
    "Angelique Bouchard is a fictional character from the gothic horror-soap opera and film Dark Shadows, in which she is the main antagonist. She is primarily portrayed as a powerful witch driven by her vacillating love and hatred for Barnabas Collins." That's from the character's Wikipedia entry and barely scratches the surface of this character, which didn't so much as underline as add an explamation point to the class issues and sexual politics discussed on the series. She's a villain to some, a hero to others ... frequently at the same time.

    I made this piece as part of a mock up cover of Famous Monsters #88, which featured a terrible photo of James Storm retouched with fake red blood. I kept the cover headlines but created something in the neighborhood of Basil Gogos ... at least, as much as my meager skills would allow. 11x17 on glossy poster paper.
