|A shepherd on a distant planet has to make some tough decisions when she finds a wounded ancient beast on her flock's grazing grounds.|
The Shepherd is a 24-page, one-shot comic book adventure set in a distant world. Astrid, a young tribal shepherd who watches a flock of ghazals, must make some tough decisions when she comes upon a wounded Thanacht--a ferocious beast of legend thought extinct a thousand years ago.
Faced with the question of whether to help this predator which could easily hurt her or her flock, Astrid's situation becomes even more complicated when a group of poachers show up looking for the beast, led by Rul, a hardened hunter obsessed with his search for the Thanacht.
