From the Publisher
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!
