The lives of the saints are filled with inspiring, life-changing moments - but the deaths of the martyrs are where you'll find the "Oh, hell no!" moments of history. This adult (very adult, as the body count will quickly indicate) coloring book gives aspiring crayon and paper artists the chance to hone their craft while also buffing up their knowledge of Catholic history and legends. Each intricately detailed illustration from acclaimed graphic artist Julia Gfrörer leaves plenty of room for interpretation. And the attending stories will go down pretty easy at cocktail hours as well.

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 mincomics 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 Gfr?rer’s willingness to explore herself, her emotions, things that trouble or interest her, and spin all that on the page..." - The Comics Beat
