From the publisher:
In times past, the world was full of mythical creatures--creatures long since banished and held at bay by the secret society of Shepherds. But when the generational line of Shepherds is broken, a reluctant hero finds her life threatened from every quarter. And the creatures are coming back! Now, IDW presents this Premiere Edition of Lore, written by T.P. Louise and acclaimed artist Ashley Wood. Primarily a prose tale, Wood provides panel and spot illustrations that help bring this story to life. Lore Premiere Edition collects the entire six issues of this unique and mystical series, along with a gallery of artwork from Wood, all within a handsome hardcover.
