RICHARD SALA: IN A GLASS GROTESQUELY

The new book by the maestro of macabre mystery, Richard Sala, will be released in November. In a Glass Grotesquely features the serialized exploits of Super Enigmatix, and channels Spy Vibe faves like Fantomas. I recently met with Richard Sala in our virtual secret lair to discuss great villains, James Bond, classic horror and illustration, Emma Peel, and the conventions of mystery adventure stories. Read our new exclusive interview here. Amazon pre-order page for In a Glass Grotesquely here. Book description below.


From Amazon: "A series of villain-themed interrelated short stories, told in vibrant watercolor art. This graphic novel is a selection of related short mysteries and thrills, all depicted in Sala’s trademark colorful watercolor washes and sharp, detailed line-work. Rising from the crumbling pages of some forgotten (and nonexistent) pulp magazine comes the diabolical villain Super Enigmatix. Following in the bloody footsteps of master criminals 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. Will he fall at the hands of the unhinged music professor turned homicidal fiend who calls himself Phantasmiac? Or Quadrummando, the Undead Shaman?" Full color. 136 pages. Fantagraphics. Sample pages below.
