This October, watch out on the comic shelves for Kaya, a new fantasy-adventure series just announced from Image Comics, by writer and artist Wes Craig (best known for Deadly Class, Gravediggers Union).
Kaya is the story of siblings surviving in a world of monsters and mutants. After the destruction of their village, a young girl with a magic arm and a fighting spirit is tasked with delivering her little brother to a faraway safe haven. There, he’s destined to discover the secret to overthrowing the all-powerful empire that destroyed their home.
“I’m putting every bit of heart, action, and fun that I can into each issue,” said Craig in a recent Image Comics press release. “Kaya, her brother Jin, and the strange world they live in are very real to me, and I think readers are gonna have a blast discovering it, month in, month out.”
First previewed in the Image! Anthology, this new series premiere features 31 gorgeous story pages, bonus material, and a Jack Kirby-inspired variant cover, also by Craig.
See below for both covers, and a four page preview!
Kaya #1 will be available at comic book shops with two covers (both by Wes Craig, see below) on, and digitally via popular comic retail apps on Wednesday, October 5.
