The compelling saga of a man, Saint Germaine, who lives forever and who sweeps through the ages of historical and mythological events.

In this graphic novel, creator Gary Reed is joined by noteworthy artists in providing four stand alone stories that explore this legendary figure. In 'The Man in the Iron Mask', Reed is joined by artists Guy Davis and Andy Bennett as Germaine ventures into the dungeons to confront the un-named prisoner who was forced to conceal his identity for life unless his secret is revealed. Bennett joins up with Sandman artist Vincent Locke in an exploration of evil though history and Reed gives his spin on the mysterious and avenging figure known as Kilroy in 'The Kilroy Mandate'. Giovanni Casanova, the world's greatest lover was so much more than just his amorous affairs. Reed teams up with James E. Lyle as Germaine and Casanova reflect back on their life together in 'Casanova's Lament'. Lastly, artists Tom Biondolillio and Larry Shuput team up as Germaine looks up an old friend and finds that she has turned her back on eternity and instead is mired in the communion of the ancient Sioux ritual, 'The Ghost Dance'.
