Black Fire

It is the dead of winter, Napoleon’s army is retreating after a failed campaign against the Russians. Two French soldiers end up isolated and trapped in a ancient Slavic town and must escape…before their souls are devoured by Czernobog, the Russian god of death, fire and darkness!

Hernan Rodriquez‘s Black Fire is a historical horror story reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft and Hellraiser!  I stumbled on to this graphic novel while browsing the Library’s collection, and I was not disappointed.  The raw, dark illustrations help capture the intensity of the story and create an atmosphere of fear and urgency.  The bitter Russian winter winds emanate off the paper and blood pools where your fingertips have touched the page…
