Written by Richard Starkings & Art by Abigail Jill Harding
Action packed fantasy horror story, beautifully dark and gothic with stunning artwork. Includes limited edition bookplate.
All of us, at one time or another, may have asked ourselves if we are living our best lives; not in the overused meme sense of the idea, but whether we are maximizing our potential. Are we living facades without substance beneath, or are we trying to trick others and ourselves into think that the surface paint is the reality? Are we destined for something more?
That is one of the concepts that writer Richard Starkings and artist Abigail Jill Harding explore in their miniseries. In Ask for Mercy, a young real estate agent finds herself transported from her life of trying to keep up appearances to get ahead in her profession to the middle World War II, where she contends with Nazi monsters alongside other monsters. Exploring notions of destiny and identity—and chockful of horror and action—Ask for Mercy is an engaging, gorgeously-rendered ride for anyone grappling with a sense of self or just loves monster romps.
