Emma Ríos (Pretty Deadly, Island) and Hwei Lim (Lalage, Hero) launch a new story arc of MIRROR next week on March 15th.
Issue #6 will run as a prequel to the first series of the same name, set 50 years in the past. According to Image: “Fifty years before the human colony on Irzah took its first stumbling steps, in the utopian dreamlands of Synchronia, a young artist woke something–something that had long slept in ancient stone ruins”.
Rios rather evocatively says:
I like stories that hold a few secrets. I like the invisible thread that seems to weave through the fabric, because it encourages me to figure out why the characters evolved one way and not another. For better or worse, the late Irzah colony now expands into a whole system of planets called The Synchronia. Full of secrets and ghosts, this old new world aims to reveal perhaps too much…but hopefully not!
As Emma and I worked with our cast of characters, we ended up wanting to know more about them—how they came to be where they are, what personal demons they sought to escape. Most of all, though, we ourselves really wanted to know the fate of all our heroes—Zun, Sena, Elena, and the others—and to see who would help and who would thwart them on their journey to find a new home.
MIRROR #6 (Diamond code: JAN170710) arrives in stores Wednesday, March 15th.
