ASHLEY WOOD'S D'AIRAIN AVENTURE #2

Written by Ashley Wood, T.P. Louise and Chris Ryall, cover by Wood.

What is D'Airain Aventure about, you ask? It's about life and love and hate and death and magic and mystery and all of these things and none of these things, all at once. It's the kind of comic that needs to be experienced rather than defined. All of which would sound overly grandiose if it wasn't being applied to a comic that's produced by visionary creator Ashley Wood. Once again featuring 32 pages of story and art by Ash (aided and abetted by T. P. Louise, and Chris Ryall), including extra strips, two covers, and much more that's got to be seen to be believed.
