From the imaginations of award winning creators: Lovern Kindzierski, John Bolton and Todd Klein, is born the dark faery tale trilogy Shame.
“Sensuous art and luscious coloring. A visually unique book.”
– P. Craig Russell, Eisner award winning writer and artist
Part 1 in the epic Shame saga. Features a wrap around, heavy duty card cover. When the purest woman on earth allows herself one selfish thought, it is enough to conceive the most evil woman the world has ever known. Book 1 in the series introduces a world much like our own but with magick and those with the power to control it, for good and for evil. In this first tale we meet Shame, discover the unique circumstances of her creation, and follow her choices as her true nature is revealed.

“This book is a pure joy to behold. Every page crackles with a sumptuous, organic energy. Highly recommended.”
– Paul Pope, Eisner award winning artist and writer
“The story is dark but spellbinding, and the art’s gorgeous realism makes the tale compelling and take on a life of its own. 5/5.”
– John Kirk, Pop Mythology
“John Bolton’s lush painting transforms the familiar and potentially mundane settings of fantasy standards into something truly bleak and bizarre to match the grim, earthily seedy meta-reality of Kindzierski’s script. Dark, nasty and packed with sumptuous seductions of every stripe, the sage of Shame is every adult fantasists’ desire made real…”
