Staff Picks (January 13): Drew Hayes' Poison Elves #1
Dec 14, 2012
Don’t call it a comeback! Seriously. Poison Elves, the titular work of Drew Hayes, returns. This is not a reprint, a side story, or a one-shot. This is an ongoing continuation of the original series!
Life was not kind to main character Lusiphur Malache. As an orphan, he was raised by a family who owned an inn in the town of Port Sarnwog. After losing their business in a fire Lusiphur’s mother is forced into prostitution and eventually paralyzed during a brutal attack by a patron. She begs her adopted son to help her commit suicide to end her suffering and orphaning Lusiphur again, sending him tumbling towards a life of organized crime.
From Ape Entertainment, Poison Elves will once again be showcased in black and white. Issue #1 features an incentive cover by Strangers in Paradise artist Terry Moore!
