Clockwork Angels GN (1999 Image) comic books
1st printing. Written and art by Lea Hernandez. Introduction by Warren Ellis. The much-anticipated sequel to Hernandez' graphic novel debut, Cathedral Child! Temperance, a magician desperate to put her past and her criminal family behind her, agrees to do something she swears she can't: read the last thoughts of the dead. Amy, her companion, hasn't slept since she was born, but has been dreaming all her life of one thing: to love and be loved. However, Amy is fated to perform a wonder to rival any of Temperance's and is doomed by her weak heart. Many destinies converge in 1897 New Orleans with Temperance's reading of the remains of a man known as the "Mad Machinist." "Lea's an American writer/artist working in the manga idiom--and, for my money, one of the very few people who makes American Manga work. Lea's the creator of a thoroughly charming graphic novel entitled Cathedral Child. [Cathedral Child is] a smart and attractive parallel world of tangled love, heartbroken computers and software like music." --Warren Ellis. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 7 1/2-in., 112 pages, B&W. Cover price $10.95.
