Brandon Graham and Marian Churchland’s story that originally appeared in four issues of the 8House series is being collected in a trade edition, Arclight, published by Image Comics in March. You may know Brandon Graham’s work from the inventive and beautiful anthology Island, but also from the series King City and Prophet, and Marian Churchland’s work in From Under Mountains and Beast. Both have a keen instinct for fantasy storytelling, and this one looks boundary-pushing to boot.
Arclight is described as:
Sharp genderqueer knights, blood magic, death gods, astral projection, and a goose: Arclight has it all. Her mind trapped in a strange alien body, a lady of the blood house hides on the outskirts of her kingdom, until she learns that an alien monster pretending to be her has taken her place.
The Arclight TPB arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, March 22nd and in bookstores Tuesday, March 28th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, February 20th.
