The Crow: Shattered Lives & Broken Dreams – Deluxe Edition

He avenges the innocent dead. He stalks the crimson road of the slain. He mourns lost love so ardently that desire and death become one. He is the dream-carrier of holy retribution. And in the name of love he delivers justice to the wicked.

From the Introduction

It has been nearly two decades since James O'Barr first painted the harlequin mask onto Eric Draven, and thereby conceived one of the most widely recognized gothic archetypes of today. What began as a comic book has evolved into a franchise of films, novels, merchandise, and even a new television series.

Born of personal tragedy, the Crow warps together two of man's strongest emotions and desires in love and revenge. The antihero we have come to know, consciously or not, rejects conventional values and ideals to do ultimately what is right-not because he wants to, but because he's fated to do so. And much like Elric, Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion, the Crow is consumed by his own actions, only to be reborn again. A cycle that will continue for eternity.

In the collection The Crow: Shattered Lives and Broken Dreams, the genre's finest writers, artists, and poets lend their voice to O'Barr's vision. Many have integrated their own stories and characters with that of The Crow, to provide you with a most unique window into the psyche of a new chronic outlaw. You will be angered and fulfilled, satiated and left empty. But you won't be disappointed.

This collection by masters of Horror/Fantasy/Science Fiction hosts an ominous array of interpretations of the gothic phenomenon. The Harlan Ellison short story and Ed Bryant novella are not in the Del Rey trade edition. Storm Constantine tells for the first time the origins of the Wraeththu. Other series characters include S.P. Somtow's Timmy Valentine, Rick Reed's Jimmy Fels and Nancy Collins's vampire Sonja.
