Mike Carey, writer of Lucifer, joins forces with renowned fantasy illustrator John Bolton for the original graphic novel God Save The Queen. Featuring lush, painted artwork by Bolton, this fantastic tale echoes the themes and epic scope of The Sandman and The Books of Magic. Set in both North London and the kingdom of Faerie, God Save The Queen tells the story of a rebellious London teenager whose falling out with her mother leads her to befriend a group of slacker faeries. From the ancient struggle between rival Queens Titania and Mab to a young girl's conflicted coming of age, God Save The Queen will intrigue and delight mature readers.

About the author (2007)

MIKE CAREY got into writing through comic books, where his horror/fantasy series Lucifer garnered numerous international awards and was nominated for five Eisners. From there he moved into novels and screenplays, while still maintaining a presence in the comics world (he is currently writing two of Marvel's flagship titles, X-Men and Ultimate Fantastic Four). His movie Frost Flowers, an erotic ghost story, is currently in production with Hadaly/Bluestar Pictures. He lives in London, England, about as far as you can get from the centre of the city and still have access to the London Underground train network. His wife, Linda, writes fantasy for young readers under the pseudonym A.J. Lake. They have three children and an implausibly beautiful cat.

John Bolton was appointed by President George W. Bush as United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations in 2005, and served until his appointment expired in December 2006. He was nominated for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for playing a major role in exposing Iran's secret plans to develop nuclear weapons. An attorney who has spent many years in public service and held high-level positions in the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, Bolton is currently a Senior Fellow at American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., and a commentator for Fox News Channel. He lives outside of Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife and daughter.
