Are you looking for a comic that explores a deeply flawed, complex character? Then look no further! From Archaia, Butterfly, written by Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco, Erased) and Marguerite Bennett (A-Force, Sleepy Hollow), with art by Antonio Fuso (The Girl Who Played with Fire) and Stefano Simeone, Butterfly is a dark thriller that explores the nature of family in the uncompromising world of global espionage. The story follows one of Project Delta’s deep cover agents, Butterfly. With no birth certificate or social security number, she is a complete ghost. When her cover is blown and she’s set up for a murder she didn’t commit, she is unknowingly led to her father’s doorstep. Coincidentally, she thought he died 20 years ago. Because she was trained to trust nothing and no one, she finds herself at a crossroads. Butterfly must decide whether to seek answers with the Project, or believe the man who betrayed her years ago.
When you buy an Archaia book, there’s usually a pretty good chance that you’re investing in an excellent product, with a great script, and beautiful artwork. So, when I find about new hardcovers being released I almost always add them to my pull list. However, there’s something very unique about this one. Even though I haven’t met Butterfly yet, I’m already drawn to the crossroads she arrives at in the book. I look forward to picking up a copy when it’s released this August.
