Show Notes: On this episode I talk to Little Deaths creator and Texas transplant – David Doub. David is the founder of Dusk Comicsand is a member of Shonuff Studios, a comic and art production company. His numerous publications include Dusk, Miss Tilney, Forever, Mystery Masque, and the upcoming Little Deaths. According to the interwebs, “La petite mort” (the littledeath), is an expression which means “the brief loss or weakening of consciousness” and in modern usage refers specifically to “the sensation of post orgasm as likened to death.” The term “la petite mort” does not always apply to sexual experiences. It can also be used to describe a weakening or loss of consciousness, specifically in sleep, or when some undesired thing has happened to a person and has affected them so much that “a part of them dies inside.” The Little Deaths we’ll be investigating today is a30 page full color historical fantasy adventure comic, written by David Doub and featuring art by Andrew Herman and Paul Maitland. It’s based on the French historical figure Julie d’Aubigny (also known as known as Mademoiselle Maupin or La Maupin) who lived A LOT from (1670–1707). She was a duelist, popular opera singer, and apparently was not only known to dress like a man, but could kick the crap out of them in duels, too. The Kickstarter campaign for this project will launch Monday, March 15th, 2021 and will have with a spectacular cast of guest artists for special perks!
I hope you’re staying safe, staying warm, and staying tooned..!
