Summary
<U+001c><U+0019>This is the garden, sill and green. There is a humming somewhere. Someone was burning. Someone was gone.<U+0019> In an anonymous corporate boardroom, a superhero is shot through the head. Her body is consumed by flames, and her killer walks free. Se begins Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean<U+0019>s Black Orchid, one of comics<U+0019> most remarkable and transformative creations. Simultaneously a deconstruction and a resurrection of an entire genre, this tale of the uncanny lives of Susan Linden embodies the new maturity in graphic storytelling that revolutionized the medium.<U+0029>-- cover page 4
