They Might Be Giants: Preview Giantkillers From Ominous Press And IDW

by Oliver MacNamee

Released this week is the all-new oversized prestige format book Giantkillers by Bart Sears, with art by the all-star team of Rick Leonardi (X-Men) and Matthew Dow Smith (X-Files). Included as additional content will be a short story with art by Meghan Hetrick (Red Thorn), and a prose story written and illustrated by Bart Sears.

Arkon the Giantkiller is fated to protect Auoro, the One True Chosen, so that she may destroy the evil Lord Omin. She just has to survive long enough to do it! Bart Sears pens the story he has always wanted to tell, a tale of brutal sword-swinging action as Arkon seeks to rescue the infant Auoro from her captors.

Judging from the preview, it’s a rather dark fantasy themed book in a joint publishing venture between IDW and Ominous Press, set to be the springboard from which other stories set in this fantasy universe will take off from. And here’s your first look at this week’s release.
