“Impressively, Deadwind Sea never gets predictable…it both satisfies and confounds reader expectations while also being unabashedly romantic…Warmth emanates from its pages.” —Jamie S. Rich; Senior Editor Vertigo (DC Comics)
When the unluckiest shepherd in the village marries the most beautiful woman in the country, tragedy sparks a fantastic voyage to the Land of the Dead. As Sergio’s ship of stories carries him toward the setting sun he encounters the world’s laziest pirates, a monster hunter displaced in time, ancient Rome’s answer to the Marx Brothers, and a psychotic Kris Kringle. Arriving at last on the shores of the mythical continent that civilization would later call America, Sergio plunges into a drama that leads him far beyond the world’s horizon.
