WE DIDN’T COME TO
HELL FOR THE CROISSANTS

"Unique and mindblowing"

Cue Online

We Didn't Come to Hell for the Croissants is the eagerly anticipated sequel to the international cult hit The Epicene Butcher. It's a rollicking, rude interpretation of the ancient Japanese storytelling culture of kamishibai caught in a riff of South Africanisms, conjoined with one of the slickest, freshest and darkest reflections on explicit orgiastic sex, death, and all that hides in between.

"Raunchy and subversive"

"...a very naughty sort of burlesque-graphic-novel-cabaret style Gothic drama."
