One of the things I hope to do on this blog is spotlight other Indie books that people might not know about. There are a lot of great books out there and I hope others will spread the word about them.
Of course I couldn't start with anyone else by my SENTINELS partner in crime, Luciano Vecchio.
CRUEL THING features Luciano's current work. The first OGN just came out and seems to be taking off. Created by writer, Lean, and Luciano, CRUEL THING follows the story of being empowered by the sexual misery of others. It's a mature book, so Luciano is allowed a lot of artistic freedom and uses it throughout the book. Visually the book is just as beautiful as Luciano's work in SENTINELS and REAL CLOHE (http://realclohe.blogspot.com/), but it's complete different. Using only black, white and red to color the entire book, the mood created is very impressive. You immediately find yourself pulled in the world of CRUEL THING and you won't soon forget it. The only drawback for us here in the U.S. is that the book is only available in Spanish right now. But I believe an English version is coming soon, along with the second OGN.

CRUEL THING is a 104 page OGN published in black, white and red. It is the first of three in a series.
