Saint runs an inn for Time Travelers, which leaves him
little time to write his trashy romance novels. Always a pit
stop in the crisscrossing lives of his out-of-date friends and
family, Saint wonders where his place is in a world that is
quickly passing him by. 

Unfortunately, he also seems to attract
more… supernatural “guests,” too.

“Saint for Rent” is written and illustrated by Ru Xu.
Editing assistance by the wonderful William Squires and Rem.

It contains animated .gifs, historical drama, futuristic utopia/dystopia,
and the kind of non-linear storytelling in which seemingly unrelated
character arcs merge and develop as the main plot advances.
