Just a couple of months before his tragic passing in March 2020, cartooning master of the macabre Richard Sala completed his final book - or, actually, his final four books. Poison
Flowers & Pandemonium collects all four of these original graphic novellas in one beautiful
hardcover worthy of Sala's legacy. First up in Poison Flowers is "House of the Blue Dwarf," a 125-page thriller featuring master criminal the Bloody Cardinal, who leaves a wake of mayhem and madness everywhere he goes. "Monsters Illustrated" is a fun, 64-page monster movie riff that showcases Sala's visual imagination. A young woman in a dusty
bookstore reads a strange bestiary - the "book within a book" showcases a series of Sala's gorgeous watercolor and ink drawings. But when she gets to the end, she finds the bookseller drives a hard bargain. "Cave Girls Of The Lost World" is a campy, 60-page romp about a team of young women whose plane crashes in a land forgotten by time and rife with dinosaurs, carnivorous plants, and apemen - but these intelligent, brave, and resourceful
women are ready to rumble! Rounding out the book is "The Amazing Adventures of Fantomina Fantomella," a 45-page graphic novella of violence and non-stop action.
Priest and his mob thought Fantomina was dead. So how is it that she's come back
with a vengeance? Poison Flowers & Pandemonium is a perfect showcase of Sala's
gorgeous watercolor artwork and his love of B movie horror, silent film-era archetypes,
and femmes fatale.
