The lives of saints can be inspirational-but it's their deaths where things get weird. This coloring book gives budding crayon and paper artists the chance to hone their craft while also buffing up on Catholic history and legends. How will you render the sea that drowned St. Clement? Or the clubs and arrows that stilled St. Valentine's heart? Each detailed illustration accompanies a profile of the saint and is ready for your coloring contribution. (Just make sure you have extra red crayons handy.)

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Julia Gfrörer's work: "Gfrörer’s art is incredible and entirely her own—scratchy, fine linework and a pitch black palette that would feel at home on the cover of a metal album." - Seattle Weekly "Julia Gfrörer has been making minicomics and posting comics online for many years... She's won fans in many circles because of her horrific non-horror comics. Gfrörer's stories are atmospheric and often supernatural, but she doesn't depict monsters -- rather, her comics deal with emotional agonies, depicted with elegant linework and haunting imagery." - Comic Book Resources "Her work resonates with the reader because it succeeds in harbouring a greater depth—ostensibly it explores humanity: people and their wants and desires, their extents and extremes, their complex simplicities, and always coming from a place of such feeling and emotion; the crux of what drives anyone to do anything, the crux of being. It’s made all the more stronger by a tangible, focused essence lent to it by its creator, and Gfrörer’s willingness to explore herself, her emotions, things that trouble or interest her, and spin all that on the page..." - The Comics Beat
