**The Polite Ones is now sold out through the Dim Shores webstore. Cody has a few more available directly from him but he is often located in other timelines and/or on different frequencies and it may be hard to tune him in. Although if you do reach him he will probably doodle like a big mushroom for you on the title page if you ask him. It's worth a try. Google his ass and hit him up.**

THE POLITE ONES is a dark fantasy from the mycoid-blasted brain of Cody Goodfellow (RAPTURE OF THE DEEP, STRATEGIES AGAINST NATURE, REPO SHARK). Cody’s psychedelic evocation of a subterranean society of decaying clans and their fearsome rulers is brought to vivid life in the illustrations of Marcelo Gallegos. A thrilling and claustrophobic alkaloid nightmare.
