Before introducing the modern version of The Sandman, Neil Gaiman wrote this dark tale that reinvented a strange DC Comics Super Hero in the Vertigo mold. Featuring spectacular painted art by Dave McKean, the 3-issue BLACK ORCHID miniseries is now collected in hardcover for the first time. After being viciously murdered, Susan Linden is reborn as the Black Orchid, a hybrid of plant and human, destined to avenge her own death.

Beginning in the cold streets of a heartless metropolis and ending in the Amazon rainforest, this book takes the reader on a journey through secrets, suffering and self-rediscovery.
