The one and only Christian Ward will be joining us for a signing to celebrate the release of Invisible Kingdom #1 on Saturday March 23rd, 1-2pm!
Christian is an old favourite (not mention an old customer) of ours, from the early days of Infinite Vacation (with writer Nick Spencer), through his and Matt Fraction’s Homeric space epic ODY-C, to his collaboration with Saladin Ahmed on Black Bolt (one of our Best of 2018). His Eisner-winning vision is unique: a synthesis of line, layout and colour that is like an artistic fingerprint, instantly identifiable as his own. Now he joins legendary editor Karen Berger’s Berger Books line at Dark Horse, working with Ms Marvel co-creator G Willow Wilson to bring us Invisible Kingdom.
“Set in a in a far-flung star system, this new epic sci-fi monthly saga tells the tale of two women-a young religious acolyte and a hard-bitten freighter pilot-who separately uncover a vast conspiracy between the leader of the system's dominant religion and the mega-corporation that controls society. On the run from reprisals on both sides, this unlikely pair of rebels risk plunging the world into anarchy if they reveal the truth. But when your beliefs betray you, what choice is there left?”
