Signed by Martin Hayes, R H Stewart, and Richard Kaczynski on a bookplate tipped onto the inside front cover and with a special statement of limitation imprinted on the rear cover.

The first full recounting of the life of Aleister Crowley in “graphic novel” form (i.e. a book produced in ‘comic’ form: instead of straight text it comprises a series of panels of images with accompanying textual devices of speech balloons, captions, etc. giving the narrative.) Illustrated in black & white by R H Stewart, and with a two page Foreword by Crowley biographer Richard Kacyznski.

From the publisher’s blurb: ‘ … the life and times of Britain’s most infamous son. Occultist, artist, poet, prophet, record-setting mountaineer, drug and free-love pioneer, spy, scholar, and legendary bad egg. An explorer of many realms who conversed with gods and angels but ended his days labelled ‘The Wickedest Man in the World’. A foolish genius. A much maligned history. A wanderer of the waste.”
