Mercy by Mirka Andolfo

Mercy, Book 1

Synopsis: When the placid mining village of Woodsburgh is disturbed by a series of brutal murders, the settlement is in turmoil. And as the first snow covers the chaos in a white blanket, a mysterious woman in black arrives, eliciting a totally different kind of unrest. But who is Lady Hellaine, really? And what’s her secret agenda?

Acclaimed UNNATURAL creator MIRKA ANDOLFO presents a sensual Victorian gothic horror about otherness, damnation, redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, The Alienist, Parasol Protectorate, and Dark Shadows.

Review: This comic has a really beautiful cover! Well, I had the French collector edition which is a bit different from the English on. The format is bigger and there are bonuses. It’s a very nice gift that I was looking forward to discover.

This first volume is a quick read. It begins the story of Lady Hellaine, a very mysterious woman, capable of impressive things, and that of a little orphan girl who is looking for her mother.

Like the cover, the images inside the comic are sublime and it was a delight to discover them. The story is a bit confusing and is a qick read, but I’m quite curious to see what the sequel will be like.

  1. As if this amazing cover isn’t enough, there are the words ‘a sensual Victorian gothic horror about otherness, damnation, redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale’. Definitely one for my Wish List, I’m away to add it now.
