“Batman” #51

How does a man behave and recover after suffering a major emotional loss? What coping mechanisms and unintended consequences does that man go through?

Ruinworld #1

By | Jul 12, 2018 | Reviews

There is something about books that are written, drawn and coloured by the same artist. Not only are they few and far between, but they also share that sense of unity and cohesion that only the best multi-artist partnerships can show otherwise.
