This is a beautifully designed mini comic. Printed on glossy paper stock with a painted colour card cover it leaps up at you from the comic shelf. The interior artwork is in red pencil, with what looks like a red wash effect.
The narrative of the comic is short, full page panels forming a wordless tale focusing on a priest. He is walking through a town reading a book to himself, ignoring all manner of brutality around him. When his book flies out of his hands he starts to see what is going on in his town

In a Word: Luxurious.
