“Sadly, as often is the case, Mother Virtue’s selfish wish echoed like a dinner bell in the Heart of Darkness.”SHAME_Collected-Edition-cover-large

Mother Virtue, loved by all and revered by the children in her small town, is the purest woman on earth and longs for nothing more than the blissful country life she already has . . . except, in her most private and solitary moments, when she secretly pines for a child of her own. In fairy tales, just like real life, the power fueling wishes can be strong enough to make them come true, and this time, a dark entity known as Slur, the Shadow of Ignorance, rises to the task.

Mother Virtue is cursed with Slur’s child, a being of powerful magic and even more powerful rage the world will come to know as Shame. The two women, vehemently opposed but inextricably linked, shape events the only way they can, with love and retribution, through death and rebirth and war, marching towards a showdown for the fate of humanity that was destined from the start.


A pulse-pounding dark fairy tale about morality and choice, desire and ambition, selflessness and pain, from veteran comics creator Lovern Kindzierski (Heavy Metal, Tarzan) with fully painted artwork by the legendary John Bolton (Books of Magic).

Lovern Kindzierski is a successful writer, colorist, and illustrator based in Winnipeg, Canada. As a colorist he has received several Eisner, Harvey, and Schuster Award nominations. As a writer, he has worked on some of the comic industry’s most culturally resonant and far-reaching franchises including Spider-man, Wolverine, and Star Wars. His writing on Tarzan garnered him a Harvey Award nomination for Best Writer.

Based in London, England, and described by director Robert Rodriguez as a “god” for his art for Peter Straub’s The Green Woman, John Bolton is one of the most revered comic book illustrators of all time, with stunning painted work for all franchises including X-Men, Batman, Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, and the fantasy classic Books of Magic, written by Neil Gaiman. He was seven when he first encountered a paintbrush and it was love at first sight, offering him a way to create what he saw in his mind and set it to paper. Thus began a lifelong ambition of creativity connected by one underlying theme – the interesting and bizarre.
