Cathy Malkasian’s second Percy Gloom graphic novel is another fable that the author brings to vivid life through her lush and detailed pencil renderings, surreal humor, absurdist characters, breathtaking landscapes, and luminous storytelling.

Kindhearted, Candide-esque Percy wakes up from a 200 year nap and finds himself in a strange new land.
