One good tale deserves another…
In the coastal city of Vatan, a once-grand metropolis torn by divisions between its wealthy and its poor, one story spins inside another inside another. It is the story of an old woman beggar and a kind college student, who loses a day as he is enraptured by the woman’s story.
It is the story of Sera the Thief, who cleverly delays her execution at the hands of unjust rulers by promising to reveal why she stole an amulet. It is the story of Remy, whose adventures lead him to discover a jinni that grants three wishes, and whose twists and turns always seem to leave a happy ending out of his reach.
As the stories intertwine, the fate of the city of Vatan hangs in the balance.
Beggars and Thieves is an Arabian Nights inspired tale of justice in the face of tyranny by Emily Hall and illustrated by Brian Koschak and Paul Little. Its nestled stories have its own characters demanding to follow the story through to the end–and readers of the comic will be hooked the same way.
