Carmilla #6

Carmilla #5

Carmilla #4

Carmilla #1

Aircel's comic adaptation of Carmilla is loosely based on J. Sheridan Le Fanu's 1872 novella. The first book in the volume is the most true to Le Fanu's original plot. Arguably the Ur-mother of the lesbian vampire, Carmilla is portrayed as a predatory and devious figure that feigns vulnerability to infiltrate the home of the young protagonist Sarah (originally named Laura in the novella).The story begins with Carmilla paying a late night visit to Sarah as a young girl, which she then attributes to a dream despite the evidence of a vampire bite. The interlude then unapologetically shows a sapphic sex-scene with Carmilla/Millarca and another woman. Following the interlude, the narrative returns to Le Fanu's original plot with the news that Mademoiselle Rheinfeldt, who was due to pay the protagonist a visit with her guardian, has been killed by a "monster." Sarah's vows to search for this monster are then interrupted by a carriage accident, in more... Aircel's comic adaptation of Carmilla is loosely based on J. Sheridan Le Fanu's 1872 novella.

Following the interlude, the narrative returns to Le Fanu's original plot with the news that Mademoiselle Rheinfeldt, who was due to pay the protagonist a visit with her guardian, has been killed by a "monster." Sarah's vows to search for this monster are then interrupted by a carriage accident, in which a mysterious young woman is supposedly injured. Sarah then convinces her father Tobias to take in the seemingly vulnerable young lady so she may recover.Following a visit from the doctor, Sarah requests that she be allowed to see the young lady. The protagonist then recognises the mysterious house guest as the figure from her 'dream' all those years ago. Before she can reveal this, however, Carmilla cunningly appropriates the details of the encounter and deceives Sarah into believing she shared the same 'dream.' Having gained the protagonist's trust through these falsified claims, Carmilla attempts to get closer to her and a close bond begins to develop between the pair. The issue then ends with a voyeuristic scene, in which the vampire watches the young woman undress through the window. It is then ambiguously implied that the vampiric exchange that follows may also be a sexual one. Whilst the lesbian undertones are certainly present in Le Fanu's novella, the Aircel adaptation unapologetically and explicitly portrays the vampire's homosexuality.

Nelson Mandela #1

In 1948, justice and equality were outlawed in the country of South Africa. The people needed one voice to speak up when the world fell silent. They needed one leader to stand up when the world looked away. One man answered that call; one man that sacrificed his own future for the future of his people and transformed a nation.Since this is a biography, the story of Nelson Mandela follows the factual details of his life. The story opens in a prison cell in South Africa in 1985. Nelson Mandela has spent more than twenty years in prison. He is approached with an offer from South African President, P.W. Botha. Mandela will be released and be given his freedom if he denounces some of the tactics being used by those still fighting for equality in the racially segregated nation. Mandela refuses.The story cuts back to Mandela’s childhood where we see him going through school and then university and finally, to when he gets his first job as an articled more...

Mandela refuses.The story cuts back to Mandela’s childhood where we see him going through school and then university and finally, to when he gets his first job as an articled clerk.The story focuses on the fact that Mandela could not turn a blind eye to the injustices that he saw. He gave up what could have been a more comfortable personal life to put himself at the forefront of the anti-apartheid movement. He refused to compromise his beliefs, choosing to remain in prison multiple times. And he never let his desire for equality be corrupted by hatred, constantly stressing that their goals were not revenge against their oppressors. Mandela still tried to avoid any deaths even when his organization took on more violent and aggressive measures to fight for freedom. The narrative focuses on him being a positive leader and face of change in South Africa—omitting later criticisms, like his lack of action in trying to stop the sweep of AIDS in South Africa when he was President.
