Saint Germaine: Magus and other stories
 The lead feature is Magus which ties into the Saint Germaine storyline but stands on its own. The Magus is said to be immortal and secrets are revealed as to how he obtained his immortality. There was a heavy price to pay and now, Beelzebub, the Lord of the Flies has come to collect. Will Magus sacrifice his only daughter to this master of the darkness? Also included here are two stand alone stories. “The Tragedy of Falstaff” is based on one of William Shakespeare’s most tragic characters. In an ALL NEW story, Saint Germaine narrates a story to writer, Victor Hugo and it deals with the love and tribulations of a hunchback at the cathedral of Notre Dame. “Quasimodo’s Tale” is about a hunchback, victim of cruelty yet still manages to find something to love in the world…until it is taken away.

Creator Gary Reed discusses Saint Germaine at Talking Transfuzion

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

“A jewel of writing and design… a work that dares to dream…” - Lino Terlichi, Drive Magazine

“This is more than a winner, Saint Germaine is a stunning example of the power of the medium. It should be exalted." - John L. Kruze

 "… taken alternate comics into the next level of storytelling. I am in awe." - Jazma Online

"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.
