Three Beautifully-Illustrated Tales of Music and Murder.
Salome: Based on the Oscar Wilde play, Salome decadently contrasts spiritual and physical virtue. Russell channels Aubrey Beardsley's original illustrations while giving the story his own spin.
The Clowns (Pagliacci): PCR teams with Galen Showman (JLA: Age of Wonder, The Graveyard Book) to adapt one of theatre's greatest tales of betrayal, adultery, and murder. Taken from the Italian opera I Pagliacci, this gorgeous adaptation tells the story of a group of traveling performers pitted against each other by conflicting desires, leading to a startling and bloody conclusion.
The Godfather's Code (Cavalleria Rusticana): Another story of cuckoldry, contrasting a vengeance-fueled murder with the bright and sunny rebirth of an Easter morning.
