The Tempter

This story by Damijan and Lucija Stepancic starts as an ordinary, contemporary "piece of life", but turns into a modern, fantastical narrative with leading female protagonists.


Lucija and Damijan Stepancic have made a really rare thing, an intelligent graphic novel with women in the lead roles. These women seem real and ordinary, but at the same time they expose, through their thoughts and contemplations, deep emotions and complex psychology. (Pavle Zelic, writer and comics critic, from the introduction of the book in English)
