Showrunner of Lucifer Teams with Lucifer Artist for Skyward from Image Comics

Writer Joe Henderson, also known as the showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer, and artist Lee Garbett, who drew the Lucifer comic for DC as well as similarly themed  Loki: Agent of Asgard for Marvel,  team up for an all-new gravity-defying comic book series in Skyward.

“Skyward is my all of my favorite things mashed together,” said Henderson. “It’s a coming-of-age story filled with action and humor, devastation and hope. It explores a world turned upside down, where anyone can leap tall buildings with a single bound… but if you jump too high, you die. And getting to see Lee Garbett bring it to glorious life is a dream come true.”

In SKYWARD, gravity on Earth suddenly becomes a fraction of what it is now. Twenty years later, humanity has adapted to its new, low-gravity reality. For one Willa Fowler—a woman born just after the fateful “G-day”—life after gravity it pretty awesome. Until she accidentally stumbles into a dangerous plan to bring gravity back. A plan that could get her killed…

Garbett added: “When I first read the pitch for Skyward it felt like fate had had a hand in putting it my way. Like it had been written for me and designed to push all my buttons. Joe Henderson’s script—as well as that killer high-concept—was so rich, his characters so warm and full of life, that I was hooked and holding on to this baby with both hands like it was chained to the ground on G-Day. I hope the readers will have the same experience.”

SKYWARD is an adventure-filled exploration of our world turned upside down and a young woman’s journey to find her place in it. Published by Image Comics, it will be out on Wednesday, April 18th.
