Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this modern hardcover retelling of a classic commedia dell'arte legend of tomfoolery and hopeless, fawning love, creators Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, the Newbery Medal-winning The Graveyard Book) and John Bolton (Evil Dead) update the relationship of Harlequin and Columbine. A buffoon burdened with a brimming heart, Harlequin chases his sensible, oblivious Columbine around the city streets, having given his heart freely. Consumed with love, the impulsive clown sees his heart dragged about town, with a charming surprise to bend the tale in a modern direction. Gaiman's writing is poetic and as heartfelt as the subject matter. Bolton's art, a combination of digitally enhanced photorealism and dynamic painting, provides sensational depth with bright characters over fittingly muted backgrounds. Those who have spent Valentine's Day alone are aware that the cold February holiday can be hard to swallow. Gaiman and Bolton want you to know that all it takes is a steak knife, a fork, and a bottle of quality ketchup!

About the Author

Neil Gaiman is an acclaimed novelist and writer of comics, short stories, screen and teleplays. He wrote all 75 issues of DC's groundbreaking Sandman series, an epic meditation on myths and storytelling. His other comics work includes Books of Magic, Death, Signal to Noise, and Mr. Punch. He created the BBC's hit television series Neverwhere, soon to be a major motion picture. With the publication of the best-selling Neverwhere novel, Gaiman made the leap from graphic visionary to literary novelist. His other books include Smoke and Mirrors, Stardust, and Good Omens with Terry Pratchett. In 1999, he wrote the English-language script for the anime blockbuster Princess Mononoke and returned to Sandman with the new graphic novel The Dreamhunters. He received the 1997 Defender of Liberty Award from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for his constant support of free expression in comics. The Dictionary of Literary Biography lists him along with Thomas Pynchon and William S. Burroughs as one of America's "top ten post-modern writers." Gaiman welcomed Spring, 2001 with the much heralded release of his best-selling novel, American Gods.
