    The Ballad of Nimue & The Demon last edited by Symlen on 09/20/20 08:04PM View full history

    Just how exactly did Madame Xanadu become the paramour of both Jason Blood and Etrigan, the foul demon trapped inside him? On the road to Alba Sarum, there's nothing but time for tall tales…and this one's as unbelievable as they come! Featuring guest art by Bernard Chang (DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS)!
