A bad trip leads Annie, our earnest heroine, through a journey of suffering and self-discovery. 

Caught within the confines of her own mind, Annie struggles against the doubled weight of trauma and despair. In order to crawl her way out, she must grapple with the cruelest parts of her psyche, and make peace with her inner child and suppressed past. Annie argues with her demons and punches her way toward the light, with a little help from her dedicated and loving friends. 

Lushly illustrated with influences from spiritual iconography and psychedelic imagery, Halbert crafts an unflinching yet compassionate story about pain, rage, and the blessings we can give ourselves.

18+ only. This book deals with trauma, sexual and physical violence, mental health, drugs, and other sensitive subjects.

“Halbert’s art and writing throb with uninhibited scenes of sex and gore, crude but portrayed with wit. Each chapter concludes with her frank confessions about processing her own childhood trauma through creating these comics. Her openhearted emotional arc combined with such shock-erotic visceral imagery make for an entertaining and unexpectedly moving experience for gore-horror fans.”

Acid Nun is my favorite underground horror comic of the 21st century. It delivers everything I’d hope for from a comic titled Acid Nun, but also delivers something I wasn’t expecting—a brave underlying theme concerning the exorcism of real-life demons. Buy it. Cherish it. Never stop reading it.”

Joseph A. Ziemba, Bleeding Skull

“Corinne Halbert’s Acid Nun is weird, subversive, and beautiful. It is one of the prettiest outlaw comics I’ve ever read. Original and exciting.”

Jim Rugg, Street Angel

“A psychedelic hymn that cycles through desire, trauma, and rebirth in glorious color. Kneel at the altar of Acid Nun and experience a new comics visionary!”

Katie Skelly, My Pretty Vampire
