Salamandre is a sweeping, evocative graphic novel from award-winning artist and writer I.N.J. Culbard (The Umbrella Academy: You Look Like Death, Everything, Brink, The New Deadwardians).
Kaspar Salamandre is a bereaved young artist who is sent to stay with his enigmatic grandfather in a land ruled under an oppressive regime, where there can be only one loved one: the Emperor.
In this land where flowers are contraband, music is illegal, and art is created in hiding, Kaspar discovers a world of art revolutionaries, espionage and the secret police.
His search for answers will bring him face to face with the meaning of sacrifice. But, will anything bring him closer to overcoming his loss?
"Culbard is a master storyteller. I can't think of a single comic creator so adept at immersing the reader into another world. Every character, every scene and every moment, regardless of the wild imaginations of the plot or I.N.J's brilliantly stylized artwork is soaked in utter realism and baked in drama. Salamandre is an adventure worth getting lost in." - Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom, Blood Stained Teeth)
"Tender and precisely observed, Salamandre is a Ghibli-esque celebration of the healing power of imagination, drawn in a stunning clear-line style that effortlessly blends the magic of childhood and a world just to the left of ours." - Cliff Chiang (Paper Girls, Catwoman: Lonely City)
