Said BOOM! Editor Cameron Chittock in today’s obligatory BOOM! editorial press release quote:
The contradictions of mermaids — being creatures of incredible beauty and yet danger, appearing human but being of the sea — makes them ripe for a wide range of stories. This lineup of artists deliver on that potential in stunning vibrancy in what might be our boldest series of The Storyteller yet.
The first issue hits stores on April 3rd.
