Shame

From the imaginations of award winning creators: Lovern Kindzierski, John Bolton and Todd Klein, is born the dark faery tale Shame.

When the purest woman on earth allows herself one selfish thought
it is enough to conceive the most evil woman the world has ever known.

 

 

Tales of Hope, another story set in the world of Shame, arriving 2017

Shame: Conception - Book 1

Book 1 in the trilogy introduces a world much like our own but with magick and those with the power to control it, for good and for evil.  In this first tale we meet Shame, discover the unique circumstances of her creation, and follow her choices as her true nature is revealed.

 

Shame: Pursuit - Book 2

Book 2 finds Shame bending the world to her evil desires, whilst her mother/daughter Virtue seeks to escape Shame's living prison.  60 pages of painted John Bolton artwork - arguably the finest of his career - depicting Lovern's fantastical tale of powerful, beautiful women wielding huge magical powers to damn or save their world.

 

Shame: Redemption - Book 3

Virtue is once more a prisoner of her daughter. Her only ally, Merritt, seems firmly under Shame's control, and Slur's plan to unleash his demon hordes is about to be put into action. Can Virtue outwit Shame and save the world from becoming hell's plaything?

Lovern Kindzierski

Writer

Lovern is a successful writer, colorist and illustrator based in Winnipeg, Canada. Lovern Kindzierski's colours have appeared in many comic books and magazines including The X-men, Star Trek, Dr. Who, The New Yorker, Wired, and Sesame Street.

Alexander Finbow

Editor

A writer and filmmaker, Alexander has been guiding the Renegade ship through the waters of creator owned publishing.

John Bolton

Art

Based in London, England, and described by director Robert Rodriguez as a “God” for his art for Peter Straub's The Green Woman, John was seven when he first encountered a paint brush. It was love at first sight, offering him an output to visualize and create what he saw in his mind and put it to paper. Thus began a life-long ambition of creativity all connected by one underlying theme – the interesting and bizarre.

Todd Klein

Letterer

Todd is best known in comics as a letterer, which he's been doing since 1977, working with writers like Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Bill Willingham and many others, and collaborating with a host of artists.

From Shame creators Lovern Kindzierski and John Bolton, the upcoming Tales of Hope trilogy picks up after the devastating confrontation between Virtue and Shame's forces, as the survivors on both sides seek to take control of the situation.

 

There are a host of new allies and what promises to be an even darker and more twisted threat for them to face forming in the ruins of Cradle. Tales of Hope Book 1 will be released early in 2017, and if you want to read the first pages before then, they will be contained in the special collectors hardcover Shame trilogy edition to be released in September 2016.

"The book is amazing. Very unusual and beautiful. This is the best painting I've ever seen out of Bolton. The story is funky and fun and sexy with a Bande Desinee sensibility. This is really a gorgeous book."

Colleen Doran, Eisner award winner, author of 'A Distant Soil'

"This book is a pure joy to behold. Every page crackles with a sumptuous, organic energy. Highly recommended."

Paul Pope, Eisner award winning artist and writer.

"Sensuous art and luscious coloring. A visually unique book."

P.Craig Russell, Eisner award winning writer and artist.

"The second book in the Shame trilogy is just astonishing. This is a dark tale that has some moments of empathy and has me wonder is evil inherent, taught, or is there simply existence. With the efforts of Bolton, this makes the story extra vibrant...has set my standard for the genre."

Blake Hamilton, Destroy the Cyborg's Best in Comic Books 2013

"Shame is dark but spellbinding, and the art’s gorgeous realism makes the tale compelling and take on a life of its own. This is a grown-up’s fairy tale that demands one’s attention and to remind people of the need to be good in this world. 5 STARS. BUY THIS."

John K. Kirk, Pop Mythology

"It is like nothing I’ve read in quite a while. There is a dreamy quality to his art that is ideal for fantasy storytelling. What Bolton does with Merritt’s facial features, physique, and clothes is uncannily, eerily natural and genuinely human."

Leroy Douresseaux, Comic Book Bin

"It is so different from most of the books out there that it took my breath away. The story is sensual, dark, twisted...powerful, fast moving, drawing the reader from panel to panel, page to page, wanting to know what will happen, who will prevail. This isn’t the typical comic book art, instead it is reminiscent of the art in fairy tale books from my childhood. Not the bright cheerful art we see in fairytales these days, but the dark art we saw in the older fairytales. The ones that were meant to teach us lessons."

Eva Jarkiewicz, Metal Life Eva

Interview with John Bolton

Gianluca Glazer, Bleeding Cool

"Not just a purveyor of ethereal beauty, Bolton is just as facile tackling frighteningly jagged abstractions of Slur and his demons. Kindzierski’s inverted fairy tale complements and is not overwhelmed by Bolton. I’ll happily continue the journey with creators of this caliber leading me along."

Henry Covert, She Never Slept

"Beautiful and haunting, Shame looks and feels like a dream,"

Fangoria Magazine

"Shame is a brilliantly dark and disturbing fairy tale that would give the Brothers' Grimm sleepless nights!"

Tab Murphy, screenwriter, Batman Year One, Tarzan

"A majestic achievement...Not to be missed."

Kurt Busiek, writer, Superman, Spiderman, The Avengers, Astro City

"This is a must have for any fan of classic storytelling and beautiful art."

Jim Palmiotti, writer, Power Girl, Jonah Hex, The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning

"A lot of dark, twisted fun with gorgeous artwork."

Invest Comics, Invest Comics

"A sexy, sumptuous, and sinister masterpiece."

Christopher Fowler, author of The Bryant and May Mysteries

"Finely crafted, sumptuously painted diamond from the minds of Kindzierski and Bolton."

Al Davison, artist, The Unwritten, Doctor Who

"John Bolton is a God."

Robert Rodriguez

"Wonderful words and dreamlike painting."

Chris Doucher, Geek Nerd Net

"Whether you believe in magic or not, it can be found within these pages. Steadfast in quality and beauty, Shame is truly a wonder to behold."

Brett Monro, We Talk Podcasts

"A mystical masterpiece! John Bolton's art is as entrancing as the magical tale it depicts."

John K. Kirk, Popmythology

"An amazing tale of high fantasy crafted by master creators, ‘Shame: Redemption’ is truly something to be cherished."

John K. Kirk, Popmythology

"Bolton’s fully-painted art makes it feel like a comic book that escaped from the Renaissance, and the tragic narrative will keep you hooked."

Mike Donachie, Toronto Star

"3 Reasons Why You Need to Read ‘Shame.. It's Smart, Sensual, and Shameless."

Jason Wilkins, Broken Frontier

"Utterly entrancing! A mature fairy tale for adults, this is a sensuous and macabre story of evil...The watercolour art is breathtaking and luscious. Highly recommended."

Nicola Mansfield, It's All Comic to Me

"In this sumptuous graphic novel, author Lovern Kindzierski and artist John Bolton deliver a fantastical tale of powerful, beautiful women wielding extraordinary magical powers that they can use to either damn the world or save it."

USA Sci Fi Book Club Pick of the Month

"It’s the kind of story that should be in a beautiful hardcover. As nice as it is in the softcovers, it is a proper epic story, and it demands the hard-cover treatment.'"

Rob Alexander, Rocky Mountain Outlook

"Spells, demonic forces and a mother/daughter rivalry for the ages all make Shame a must-own for lovers of dark fantasy."

Keven Skinner, Fox Force Five
