Nimona meets Adventure Time in the third installment of this full-color graphic novel about a singing skeleton who finally finds his origins alongside his gelatin monster sidekick!
Rickety Stitch is a walking, talking, singing skeleton, the only animated skeleton in the dungeon who seems to have retained his soul. He has no idea who he used to be when he was covered in a living, breathing sack of meat and skin. His only clue to his former identity is a song he hears snippets of in his dreams, an epic bard's tale that could also explain the old fog covering the comical fantasy land of Eem...
Oh, and his sidekick and only friend is a cube of sentient goo.
In this race-to-the-finish final volume, Rickety faces all manner of new creatures on his ultimate quest to uncover the secret of Epoli and learn his true origins.
