      Description
      Writer Fred Van Lente's incredible run on Conan reaches its epic conclusion! Taramis, the beloved queen of Khauran, was born with a twin sister, Salome--but by an ancient doom placed on their bloodline Salome's chest bore a scarlet half-moon birthmark: the mark of the witch! Left to die in the desert, Salome survived instead, and grew up to embrace her malevolent destiny . . . and now she's back, to take vengeance on all of Khauran!

      Description
      A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author's pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write fiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler.

      Shane Oakley beautifully illustrates New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's satirical tale.
      Bio
      Neil Gaiman was born in Hampshire, UK, and now lives in the United States near Minneapolis. As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton. A self-described "feral child who was raised in libraries," Gaiman credits librarians with fostering a life-long love of reading: "I wouldn't be who I am without libraries. I was the sort of kid who devoured books, and my happiest times as a boy were when I persuaded my parents to drop me off in the local library on their way to work, and I spent the day there. I discovered that librarians actually want to help you: they taught me about interlibrary loans." Neil Gaiman's work has been honoured with many awards internationally, including the Newbery and Carnegie Medals. His books and stories have also been honoured with 4 Hugos, 2 Nebulas, 1 World Fantasy Award, 4 Bram Stoker Awards, 6 Locus Awards, 2 British SF Awards, 1 British Fantasy Award, 3 Geffens, 1 International Horror Guild Award and 2 Mythopoeic Awards.

      “There were a lot of ways the story could have fallen into predictable post-modern expectations, but Ha tends to avoid them. This isn’t a dark reimagining of a classic Narnia style story. The artwork is vibrant, with colors as bright as the main characters. It looks like a great all-ages cartoon at times and also brings weight, because this is a story about consequences and adjusting to unforeseen events.” -The Mary Sue
