BOOM! Studios has released a preview of Coda, the upcoming series from Simon Spurrier and Matías Bergara.
“This is Si Spurrier unleashed, creating a truly unique and exciting new world in Coda that’s equal parts Mad Max and High Fantasy,” said BOOM! editor Eric Harburn in a press release. “Teamed with Matías Bergara, who’s delivering career-defining work, these two are making sure every chapter of this twelve-issue series is a broken fantasy epic unlike anything you’ve experienced in comics or anywhere else.”
The book’s synopsis:
In the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, an antisocial former bard named Hum seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him…but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the weird wasteland.
Coda #1, which has 40 pages of story plus bonus content but still costs $3.99, hits stores on May 2. Below, see covers by Matías Bergara, Jae Lee & June Chung, and Jeff Stokely.
