GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

Written by Mike Carey; Art and cover by John Bolton

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN is a new hardcover that reunites acclaimed writer Mike Carey (CROSSING MIDNIGHT, LUCIFER) with renowned fantasy painter John Bolton (FABLES: 1001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL, THE SANDMAN PRESENTS: THE FURIES). Bolton’s lush palette perfectly captures both the lurid underbelly of modern London and the haunting elegance of Faerie in a dark, compelling tale of decadence and desire that echoes the epic scope of BOOKS OF MAGIC and THE SANDMAN.

Set in both North London and the Faerie kingdom, GOD SAVE THE QUEEN tells the story of a rebellious teenager who falls in with a group of slacker faeries. She discovers that for faeries, the ultimate rush is Red Horse, a drug made from heroin and human blood. It’s a dangerous high, and when she gets hooked she’s drawn into a civil war that becomes a struggle to the death between Queen Titania and her predecessor, Queen Mab.

Don’t miss this imaginitave, thought-provoking collaboration from two acclaimed creators!
