Issue 1 of the Digital Periodicals edition of George Reynolds’s Faust is available now – and it only costs £1! The next issue will be out on Friday, but there’s still plenty of time to catch up with Issue 1 before then… and it’s pretty wild stuff too…
The year is 1493, and a penniless young student has made a momentous bargain to save himself from the noose. He says he did it for love… but will the lure of power and vengeance be too great?
Elsewhere, another young man is summoned by the Vehm – a secret tribunal that takes the law into its own hands and conducts clandestine trials and punishments. What do they want with Charles Hamel? And does this have anything to do with Count Manfred’s dubious claim to Linsdorf Castle?
On top of all this, Manfred has attacked Rosenthal Castle! And Theresa has been abducted! Has she bought herself enough time? Or will the dastardly Manfred force her into marriage? And just why does that old portrait look so much like Theresa’s handmaiden?
This is the first modern edition of the classic penny dreadful version of Faust, and it’s fully illustrated and compatible with all e-readers. Issues will be released fortnightly and are available exclusively from the publisher’s website. Check out the video trailer here:
