SHANNA THE SHE-DEVIL

PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

Adaptation by Roy Thomas, penciled by Sebastian Fiumara, cover by Gerald Parel

A new Marvel Illustrated epic begins here! Painter Basil Hallward has done a portrait of a strange subject-youthful Dorian Gray, a man with a mysterious and tangled history. The young man broods on how unfair it is that he will age and his portrait will remain ever young. He wishes with all his might that it were otherwise-and in some bizarre, magical way-it is! This is a novel of dark wonders brilliantly brought to life in the heralded Marvel Illustrated style. Adaptation by Roy Thomas, penciled by Sebastian Fiumara, cover by Gerald Parel
