Markosia has announced the February 20 publication of a revised and expanded edition of Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste, the critically-acclaimed graphic novel by Martin Hayes, Roy Huteson Stewart, and Paul McLaren with a foreword by renowned Crowley scholar Richard Kaczynski.
A “meticulously researched exploration of the life of Aleister Crowley…this new edition has been revised and completely redesigned with a new cover and additional bonus content – fully annotated and complete with bibliography and rarities,” according to the publisher. Also:
“Know then the life and times of England’s most infamous son. Occultist, artist, poet, prophet, record-setting mountaineer, drug and free-love pioneer, spy, scholar, and legendary bad egg. Summoner of demons and loser of friends. An explorer of many realms who conversed with gods and angels but ended his days labelled ‘The Wickedest Man in the World.’ A foolish genius. A much-maligned history. A wanderer of the waste.
“Written by Martin Hayes, whose previous projects include the graphic novels Project Luna: 1947 and Abominable Glory, along with several serials for Aces Weekly. With art by Roy Huteson Stewart, who has illustrated for Vincent Price Presents and FutureQuake. Lettered by Paul McLaren. Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste is a meticulously researched, intricately illustrated autopsy on the life of the Great Beast. 140 pages.”
