Reklas Abandon

by Natasha Kennedy and Lindsay Kennedy

"Reklas Abandon" is a graphic novel about a rich young woman who recklessly buys an abandoned mansion having no idea what mystery and danger lurks within. It's an original story with unique artwork and hints of humor, satire, and suspense.

This one-off graphic novel by artist Natasha Kennedy and her husband Lindsay Kennedy began as an experiment in publishing, and became a great adventure in the world of graphic novels and comicons. The BIG series we are all waiting for, "The Tempest", is in the writing/drawing stage right now -- though the saga has been blossoming for years; an amazingly intricate story of drama, fantasy, and mystery, full of uniquely developed characters, told in beautiful artwork.
