Marada the She-Wolf Collected


Marada the She-Wolf has a way with both humans and wolves. She also has a way with readers, engendering tons of appeal with all manner of readers. It only makes sense then that the fact that the fantasy classic is collected together for the first time bears mentioning and Titan Comics is doing the work. The book will feature fully-restored art, in depth features, history and never-before-seen sketches and artwork, by Chris Claremont and John Bolton.

In stores now comes the shield-shattering saga of Marada The She-Wolf – white-haired, blood-soaked swordswoman and mercenary, object of unearthly desire and descendant of Julius Caesar. Descended of Caesar, and preceded by her legendary reputation as a warrior, Marada The She-Wolf follows Marada's adventures across the Roman Empire. Together with her magical accomplice, Princess Arianrhod, they battle evil demons, wizards, witches and unearthly terror!

“I look through these pages and I’m reminded, most eloquently, just how gifted John Bolton is as an artist, how breathtakingly skilled he is at evoking character and event, how powerfully and also subtly he can present a scene,” says Claremont.
