||Long ago, a young woman sacrificed her humanity to become the otherworldly femme fatale known as Lady Death. But now, Lady Death is no more. Stripped of her magic and memory, dethroned by the villainous Death Queen, and banished from the Blacklands, she escapes to Earth during the Dark Ages in the form of an amnesiac mortal thief named Illadra. Driven by hazy visions of her former glory, the skillful Illadra sets off on a worldwide quest to reclaim her fragmented power? and face the evils that her magic has awakened. The first volume of the new Lady Death series includes a rare prose introduction by writer Mike Wolfer, previously only available in a hard-to-find comic book handed out at conventions.
