Eisner Award-winning I Hate Fairylandand Middlewest writer Skottie Young and artist Kyle Strahm (Spread, Unearth) come together for an all-new epic fantasy/adventure called, Twig. This five-issue miniseries is set to launch from Image Comics in May.
Itâ€™s the first day of Twigâ€™s new job as a journeyer on a Jeff Smithâ€™s Bone-esque quest to save a The Dark Crystal/Labyrinth-style world. Join our hesitant hero for an inspiring and imaginative tale of hope, heartache, and determination to overcome insurmountable odds.
â€œKyle and I both grew up in the age of Fantasy movies filled with all kinds of critters, creature, and unlikely heroes on epic quests,” said Young in an exclusive on the announcement at ComicBook.com. “This is our love letter to that time, which weâ€™ve never really left!â€
Strahm added: “Skottie and I have built a world where sunny landscapes hide creepy dark corners. Every environment Twig travels is a character all its own. And each strange new friend may not be so friendly!”
Twig #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 4.
