The creator of the acclaimed graphic memoir Epileptic, French cartoonist David B., presents in The Armed Garden a collection of short stories based on historical legend. This preview includes a selection from the story, “The Veiled Prophet,” in which a Persian fabric dyer is enveloped by a piece of white cloth that comes from the sky, and he is declared a prophet. He then proceeds to defeat seven armies sent against him. The other two stories in this collection are “The Armed Garden” and it’s sequel “The Drum Who Fell in Love,” about a bloody quest for a paradise on Earth. The Armed Garden will be released by Fantagraphics in August.
