2023 has just begun, and it’s time to learn new things and dig deeper into our gothic side to enjoy the morbid and unusual. Let’s start with something light and dark, shall we?
Card Games And Fairy Tales
New Year’s greetings, Biters! Let’s kick 2023 off with a rather odd choice for a GBM article. I want to look at Yu-Gi-Oh!.
Now, I want to discuss something other than the anime or manga. I want to look at the real-world trading card game, but even more so, one card in particular, The Unhappy Maiden.

Gothic Bite Magazine often shared the work of an author that we love, Jane Jordan. Most recently, she brought to our attention the work of her daughter. We guess that art is in the blood.
A British-American Girl
Sarasota artist, Charlotte Jordan was born in Michigan. As a child, she moved to England for six years and lived on the dramatically beautiful Exmoor in the South West of England. Being surrounded by natural elements and animals, gave her a passion for drawing.
Her love of art was nurtured during high school art classes, where she developed her creative style.

Throughout history, the word Gothic grew to mean many things. At first it was a reference to the late Dark Ages architecture. Then, it became a fashion statement before we decided to refer to it as art and a lifestyle.
Definition of Gothic
Gothic architecture is a style that flourished in Europe during the High and Late Middle Ages. It evolved from Romanesque architecture and was succeeded by Renaissance architecture.
Originating in 12th-century France, it was widely used, especially for cathedrals and churches, until the 16th century. But now it is more than just architecture, it is a lifestyle. — Wikipedia

The visual arts are art forms such as painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, video, filmmaking, design, crafts, and architecture. Many artistic disciplines involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. — Wikipedia
A Moment of Passing
A while back, Alyssa Monks shared moving insights in her TEDx Talk on art. She talked about how she tried another painting style set in nature, to rekindle her flame after her mother’s passing.
gave me pause to reflect on creative writing as another act of art that
penetrates the unknown. Specifically, it conveys the importance of allowing
life to freely grace itself into the work. Letting nature’s truths on creation
and death, on love and loss, reveal themselves in a more pure, unvarnished way.

Greetings once again, Biters! For June, I thought I’d look at the Netflix hit series, The Umbrella Academy.
The Official Summary
On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.
In their teenage years, though, the family fractures and the team disbands. Fast forward to the present time, when the six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing.

The Sandman is, while not the most recognizable character, one of my favorites of the fantastical. I don’t see him myself as a monster in the strictest of sense, but I do include him in the land of lore. Since he is our main feature for April, I will try to do my best to pay him homage.
I remember hearing about the Sandman as a child; it wasn’t through the Hans Christian Andersen’s story but through The Chordettes version of Mr. Sandman the song. In fact, in almost every rendition that I have had the pleasure to read or hear since I was introduced to the Sandman, every instance has been innocent, good intent, misunderstood, and complex.
There are a few versions in the last few years that especially stand out. It is always fascinating to see how different minds see the same lore and make it come to life in their worlds.

Gothic Bite Magazine is proud to present our third anthology to our amazing followers and wonderful readers!
The Gothic Grimoire Anthology is all about the darkest the paranormal can offer from immortals to hauntings, and a grimoire ties all.
The Making of a Grimoire
When seeing many anthologies, four authors thought maybe we could come up with something different, and we all decided to lend on a grimoire mixed with as much darkness as we could and a little dash of what makes each of us so unique in our writing. Some of us have stories tied to our on-going series while others started their set, and this is the introduction to their universe.

Last year, I started drawing Mavis from Hotel Transylvania in a holiday sweater from the day after American Thanksgiving to January 2nd.
Obsession turn to Tradition
This year, I decided to turn it into a tradition and do it every year. So, welcome to the second year of Holiday Mavis!
Last year Hotel Transylvania The Series came out, and when I decided to give it a try, I realized how much I related to Mavis. I’m anything but average, I’m clumsy with everything I do.
