When James O'Barr poured the pain and anguish of a personal tragedy into the drawings that comprise The Crow , his intensely cathartic story of Eric--who returns from the dead to avenge his and his fiancée's murder at the hands of a street gang--resonated with readers around the world. Now, the illustrated tale that became the "thrilling" ( Los Angeles Daily News ) and "spectacular" ( Chicago Tribune ) screen triumph is re-released in an expanded version the author originally intended, complete at last with:

Thirty pages of never-before-seen artwork, including a new closing segment, "Sparklehorse," and the touching new scene, "An August Noel"

A new Introduction by James O'Barr

Lost sequences restored using the artist's original technique

This is The Crow like you've never seen it before--the powerful journey of an avenging angel and a celebration of true love . . . as fierce, intelligent, and unforgettable as when it was first conceived.

Suggested for mature readers.
