The latest issue of Gothic Studies includes an article on rewriting Blake in a graphic novel by Catherine Spooner. The article, "My Friend the Devil: Gothic Comics, the Whimsical Macabre and Rewriting William Blake in Vehlmann and Kerascoët’s Satania" offers a close reading of Satania as explained in its abstract:
Catherine Spooner works across both English Literature and Creative Writing. Her academic research is centred on Gothic in literature, film and popular culture, and fashion and costume in literature and film, within the broader spectrum of literature and culture from the late-eighteenth to the twenty-first century. As a creative writer, she is interested in poetry, place writing and historical fiction, and her writing usually has a strong Gothic flavour. She has published three monographs: Fashioning Gothic Bodies (2004), Contemporary Gothic (2006) and Post-Millennial Gothic: Comedy, Romance and the Rise of Happy Gothic (2017), which was awarded the International Gothic Association’s Allan Lloyd Smith Prize for significantly advancing the field of Gothic Studies in 2019. She has also edited a variety of works.
