Lore Poster # 1 Oni by Ashley Wood


SKU: 12128 Category:


In times past, the world was full of mythical creatures-creatures long since banished and held at bay by the secret society of Shepherds. But when the generational line of Shepherds is broken, a reluctant hero finds her life threatened from every quarter. And the creatures are coming back…

Ever wonder where leprechauns and other myths come from? Or, more curiously, what became of them? Lore addresses this rich and brilliantly simple idea by introducing an equally brilliant and simple solution: They’ve been chased underground by a centuries-old secret society. But, today, many of these mythical entities are inexplicably reappearing.

It’s a promising, intriguing premise. Louise and Wood boldly venture into Neil Gaiman territory.
