The Story

A giant slouches, wails and roars. Hands like hammers pounding out a mad, possessed and most tender fury…

This is Crom, the giant. Through his eyes we glimpse a world where he summons up slumbering agitations from on high. Creatures, characters and contortions dissolve, are remade and revealed. Monsters and marvels rip, roar, stagger and stalk through his mind in an act of play, wild abandon, madness, excess and a final act of prayer.
