Welcome to the Land of Ever-Night. Bafflerog Rumplewhisker is an evil wizard, from a long line of evil wizards. It's his job to maintain the darkness spells that keep his corner of Ever-Night as dark and gloomy as the rest of it, and to find the long-lost BOOK OF WORSE, which holds magical spells that can crush the forces of goodness and light forever. There's only one problem. His heart's just not in it. Master storytellers Kurt Busiek and David T. Wenzel invite you to join Bafflerog and his companions — Gumpwort, an enchanted toad who was once a wizard himself, and Muddle, the third son of a woodcutter who's convinced he'll one day be king — as they make a journey that may mean the end of everything. Or maybe... it could mean something else.

I originally bought this simply for the art work without reading anything about the story. The art is beautiful, detailed and wonderfully colored and the story was a wonderful bonus.The story is a redemption story about how an "evil" wizard (whose heart just isn't in it) changes his mind and finds redemption while saving the world from the powers of darkness as he tries to find a hidden magical book that will allow evil to rule forever.
