2010 Eisner Award Nominee: Best Lettering (Richard Sala)
It's here! The horrifying final chapter of the critically acclaimed macabre mini-series by Richard Sala, the gleefully demented creator of Peculia and The Chuckling Whatsit. Lauded by Rue Morgue magazine, among others, Delphine follows a traveler searching for his lost love and encountering a number of frightening obstacles along the way. These include witches, werewolves, bloody murder and a pack of sinister dwarfs (did we mention that this is a twisted re-imagining of "Snow White"?). Despite all this, the traveler persists, staggering onward towards a hair-raising climax and an inevitable confrontation with unspeakable evil!
"Richard Sala’s take on Snow White is as beautiful as it is macabre." – Comic Book Resources
"Richard Sala is the thinking man's horror artist, using his playful, cartoony art style to generate white-knuckle suspense. Sala is adept at making the audience laugh one moment and cringe the next, heightening suspense by making the familiar seem creepy and the absurd disturbing. [...] This book may be the most pure fun of the Ignatz line..." – Rob Clough, Sequart
"What makes Delphine such a treat is that Sala is branching out while retaining the essence of what makes his comics so compulsively readable... it's his best work since The Chuckling Whatsit." – Dick Hyacinth, "Best Comics of 2007"
"Richard Sala’s skewed gothic horror take on Snow White... [is] well worth your while." – Newsarama
