In this double-size issue, Saint Germaine chronicles the life of one of Europe’s most famous adventurers...the vagabond lover Casanova, who infected the high courts with his charm, wit, and persuasive manner. His claim to fame included his many affairs, his escape from a Venice prison that was deemed inescapable, his frequent ventures into spying, his service as a monk, and the fateful duel that finally catapulted him to the rank of "gentleman of the court". It is a story that you only thought you knew. A valuable friend of Saint Germaine, we witness the unfolding of one of history’s most fascinating characters whose life was both tragic and uplifting. Saint Germaine is a being who claims immortality yet has died a thousand deaths. He has traversed the paths of mankind for untold years. He is the purveyor of light in a world slowly being consumed by shadows. He is Saint Germaine and death to him is nothing more than a state of consciousness.

Overview

He is a being who claims immortality yet has died a thousand deaths. He has traversed the paths of mankind for untold years. He is the purveyor of light in a world slowly being consumed by shadows. He is Saint Germaine and death to him is nothing more than a state of consciousness.

Long associated with being a magician in the era of the Mages, the legacy of St. Germaine lives on in such mysterious organizations as the Knights Templar and the Masonic Brotherhood. Revered by men such as Casanova and Cagliostro, even Frederick the Great called him "The Man Who Could Not Die."

Reviews

"Eclectic, dense with meaning, and by no means a quick or easy read, the comic takes its pleasure in not explaining the alpha and omega of its main character. The result is a character we do not completely understand with a history we cannot penetrate. In short, the most intriguing immortal in comics since Neil Gaiman's Hob Gadling." - Barry Lyga, Diamond Comics, Under the Reading Lamp

"I am in awe." - Paul Dale Roberts

"Saint Germaine from Gary Reed has to be one of most powerful things I've ever read. Outstanding, simply outstanding. They don't get any better than this." - Alicia Simmons, Fiction World.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
