Dustin Weaver’s ‘PAKLIS’ surreal sci-fi comic book anthology series, coming in May

“Step into the unknown. Journey into the shadows. There you’ll find PAKLIS.”

Coming in June from Image Comics, PAKLIS, a new series from Dustin Weaver (Marvel’s 2015 Infinity Gauntlet, Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything), featuring three stories involving dark, existential questions.  From a recent Image release, Weaver said, “My influences on this series range from Kafka to Miyazaki. The Twilight Zone, Aeon Flux cartoons, and the comics of Moebius and Otomo are all major touchstones.”

Story details of each initial installment follow…

“MUSHROOM BODIES,” Greg struggles with knowing what’s real and fears becoming complacent in a world of human insects.

“SAGITTARIUS A*,” war hero Linus Rad is on a mission to the center of the galaxy to learn the dark secrets of his dead father’s scientific experiments.

“AMNIA CYCLE,” Tara, a young Jet-Wing pilot, goes AWOL in the war against the Nuriel in order to help Amnia, a mysterious alien with no memory of where she came from and a desperate need to stop a terrible disaster! When Amnia disappears, it sends Tara on an adventure into the Shadow Zone.

PAKLIS #1 hits comic retail stores and Image comics digital outlets on Wednesday, May 31st.
