The new Safier: A picture-book love story!
What woman wouldn’t like to draw her perfect man? Comic artist Nellie often has her head in the clouds. Suffering from a broken heart, she finds an old Tibetan leather-bound notebook in which she draws her ideal guy: strong, aristocratic and with a three-day beard. When she wakes up the next morning the prince has left the page and stands, alive and well, in front of her wearing chain mail and a sword.
With the impetuous prince by her side, whose name, it turns out, is Retro, she scours Berlin to find out more about the magical notebook. Everything she draws in it comes alive! Although they make an odd couple, Nellie and Retro experience lots of adventures including fights with skinheads and escapes from the police. They soon realise that dark forces are trying to use the notebook to destroy the world! But the biggest adventure they have yet to face is the adventure of true love…
