A mysterious traveller gets off the train in a small village surrounded by a thick sinister forest. He is searching for Delphine who vanished with only a scrawled out address on a scrap of paper as a trace. In his newest mystery Richard Sala takes the tale of Snow White and stands it on its head retelling it from Prince Charming’s perspective (the unnamed traveller).
This twisted tale includes all the elements of terror from the original fairy tale with none of the insipid saccharine coating of the Disney animated adaptation. Be sure not to miss the first volume of what promises to be Sala’s best work.
