Story and art by Fabrizio Ellul

The Sack Man

Set in 1813 as an outbreak of the bubonic plague rages through the Maltese islands - and with a disturbing twist in the modern day - this graphic novel sees a man begin the journey to find his daughter. She is trapped in another world, one beneath his own, as an ancient, evil creature hides in the shadows. 

Sarangu: The Sack Man follows the animated short film Filfla, exploring the darker side of Maltese folklore. It brings to life one of Malta’s terrifying creatures of legend as it feeds off the spirits of stolen children.
