The first ten issues of the hit series from writer Matt Wagner and rising star artist Amy Reeder Hadley are collected in this new trade paperback! Madame Xanadu's powers of sight can change the course of human history, but her vision is clouded when she looks into herself. Thrown into worlds of war and men, she encounters a dark stranger who knows both her past and future. This debut volume reveals Madame Xanadu's centuries spanning origin from Camelot to the court of Kubla Khan to 1940s New York City and beyond… Featuring an introduction by James Robinson (STARMAN).
Who is Madame Xanadu?
She is one of comics' most legendary and mysterious magicians. For years she has aided the powerful and powerless alike when supernatural forces threaten our world. Madame Xanadu has played a part in countless stories, but her own story has never been told.
From learning her craft in the arms of Merlin to reading the fortunes of Marie Antoinette, from serving in the court of Kublai Khan to cheating Death of the Endless herself in a game of cards, the life of this ageless mage has woven its way through history and mythology alike. And from Morgana Le Fey to Jack the Ripper to the enigmatic Phantom Stranger, menacing forces have haunted her every step.
Follow Madame Xanadu from the mists of Camelot to the bright lights of 1930s New York City as her strange, centuries-old destiny unfolds. And learn the secrets that a thousand years of enchantment have kept hidden even from the soothsayer herself.
Written by comics legend Matt Wagner (TRINITY, Grendel, Mage) with stunning art by Amy Reeder Hadley (Fool's Gold), MADAME XANADU: DISENCHANTED is a spellbinding saga of gothic romance that spans time and space.
