“Richard Sala is one of the best artists to have worked in comics the last three decades and one of the most underrated cartoonists generally.” – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

The latest book from the author of
The Hidden and Delphine contains the epic 115-page tale of a modern master-criminal. Following in the bloody footsteps of super-fiends such as Fantomas, Fu Manchu, or Professor Moriarty, Super-Enigmatix is ruthless, cunning, and thoroughly evil. His only goal is to spread fear and cause chaos — but does he want to destroy civilization, or save it? Not even his loyal army of female commandos can guess his real motives, or his true identity.

This fast-moving ‘picture story’ is told with sly humor and all the mayhem is depicted in Sala’s trademark colorful watercolor washes and sharp, detailed line-work. Also included in this collection are three shorter stories, appearing in print for the first time, from Richard Sala’s archive of strange and offbeat tales!

“Richard Sala is an artist, a superb craftsman and a very funny man.” – Gahan Wilson
