From the New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman comes this collection, featuring two magical and disturbing stories lushly adapted to comics by veteran painter Michael Zulli (The Last Temptation). Rewritten by Gaiman for this graphic novel, these two ominous stories from the author's award-winning prose work Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fictions and Illusions feature animals and people not being quite what they seem. In "The Price," a black cat like a small panther arrives at a country home and is soon beset by mysterious and vicious wounds. What is he fighting every night that could do this, and why does he persist? "The Daughter of Owls" recounts an eerie old tale of a foundling girl who was left with an owl pellet as a newborn on the steps of the Dymton Church. She was soon cloistered away in a local convent, but by her fourteenth year word of her beauty had spread-and those who would prey upon her faced unforeseen consequences.

This slim volume has two short stories of the supernatural. The art is very appealing. Somehow the supernatural becomes warm and cozy. The story is told with no word balloons, but instead uses the style of the classic Hal Foster Prince Valiant Sunday strips, which does create more of an illustrated tale than it does sequential story telling. This is fitting because these stories read like a modern tale told by a friend and a gathered folk tale. If you are a "cat person", you won't want to miss the first tale, "The Price".
