SERENITY ROSE: 10 AWKWARD YEARS – NOW BUYABLE!
More retailers to be announced… Does your local comic shop have it? COULD THEY POSSIBLY BE THAT COOL?? If not, it isn’t too late; retailers can order direct from SLG. In fact, if your store carries this book, I’ll link to them right here on this page. Let’s assemble an ARMY OF COOL and give them all our money forever!
Thanks again to everyone who supported the Kickstarter or pre-ordered the book. I love every one of you guys, and hope the book has lived up to the hype. Or at least not maimed you too terribly. I’m more proud of this thing than anything I’ve ever made in my life, and I have you to thank for making it possible. Thank you.
Now… see me flail through a press release after the jump!
SERENITY ROSE: 10 AWKWARD YEARS, 1 MONSTROUS BOOK (PR)
HORROR. TERROR. CRIPPLING SOCIAL ANXIETY. The whole ten year run of Aaron Alexovich’s SERENITY ROSE dark comedy comic in one gargantuan hardcover edition! Out NOW.
“SERENITY ROSE is 4’10″, painfully shy, and totally into girls (shhh). She can also conjure MONSTERS out of ectoplasm, HOVER 20,000 feet in the air, and SHAPESHIFT anything she sees. Sera is a WITCH, one of only 57 the world over, a real supernatural oddity. And sadly for her, she lives in the glare of a tiny tourist trap that THRIVES on supernatural oddities. Such fun!”
SERENITY ROSE is Ghost World set in Halloween Town. It’s a Neil Gaiman kind of story done up in Calvin and Hobbes style and pumped full of pure EC nightmare fuel. The darkest of horrors and most cartoony of cartoons all in the same book.
Many eons ago, a Serenity Rose student film led to a neato job on Jhonen Vasquez’s Invader Zim TV series and a long career in comics and animation, but through it all I just couldn’t leave Serenity behind. Originally serialized online and in print through SLG Publishing, the SERENITY ROSE comic series is most personal thing I’ve ever done, bursting with love for classic monsters and modern weirdos. And now because of massive fan support and a STARTLINGLY successful Kickstarter, we’ve got this totally tricked-out omnibus edition to share with you all:
SERENITY ROSE: 10 AWKWARD YEARS is a 500 page Lovecraftian behemoth of a hardcover (In color! Mostly!) featuring all three Serenity Rose books, the “Vicious Whispers: Advice from a Fictional Rock Star Witch” web series, the never-before-in-print Halloween short, tons of behind-the scenes extras, and guest art by Jhonen Vasquez, Faith Erin Hicks, Ross Campbell, Jamie Smart, Blue Delliquanti and more. An embarrassment of horrors!

AARON ALEXOVICH (who is me)’S first professional art job was drawing deformed children on Nickelodeon’s Invader Zim. Since then he’s been deforming children for various animation and comic projects, including Avatar: The Last Airbender, Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, SLG’s Haunted Mansion, DC’s Fables, Kimmie66, Confessions of a Blabbermouth, ELDRITCH! (with Drew Rausch) and three volumes of his own horror/comedy witch series, Serenity Rose.
Aaron was born and forged in the icy crucible of Chicago, IL, but currently lives in Southern California, where the bright light makes him sneeze for some reason.
He has two cats, one theremin, and the most talented wife in this dimension or any other.
