In A Glass Grotesquely

In A Glass Grotesquely

by Richard Sala




The story of a mysterious and deadly master-villain, told in vibrant watercolors, plus additional short picture stories to amuse and confuse.

The latest book from the author of The Hidden and Delphine contains the epic tale of a modern master-criminal — a graphic novella, comprising 115 of the book's 136 pages. Following in the bloody footsteps of super-fiends such as Fantomas, Fu Manchu, or Professor Moriarty, Super-Enigmatix is ruthless, cunning, and thoroughly evil. His only goal is to spread fear and cause chaos — but does he want to destroy civilization, or save it? Not even his loyal army of female commandos can guess his real motives, or his true identity. The fast-moving "picture story" is told with sly humor and all the mayhem is depicted in Sala's trademark colorful watercolor washes and sharp, detailed line-work. Also included in this collection are three shorter stories, appearing in print for the first time, from Richard Sala's archive of strange and offbeat tales!
