The creators behind Courtney Crumrin, Princess Ugg, and Invader Zim come together in an all-new tale of gothic darkness as Ted Naifeh and Warren Wucinich come together to bring you Kriss from Oni Press, with a special digital serial release ahead of the collection.
Kriss: The Gift of Wrath trade paperback is going to be released on 17 September 2019, but ahead of that Oni Press will be releasing digital issues of Kriss on all major digital platforms, including Comixology, Google Play, and more.
In Kriss, we’re off on the dark path as this pale and grim teen sets off on a quest to discover his destiny. His village, his adoptive parents, they all consider him the outsider, with no-one to care for him bar the kindness he receives from the blacksmith’s daughter, Anya. And while shunned, he’s haunted by dreams of his real father, Erikk Iron Tooth, King of Darkovia.
But, when Anya’s mother is killed, Kriss sets off to avenge her, for the sake of his only friend. Yet, instead of the sabercat he thought he was hunting, Kriss finds a dark spirit from Darkovia, bringing Kriss his destiny, his future.
Gifting the dark teen powers, the spirit charges Kriss to reclaim his father’s kingdom. Yet, the power comes at a cost… an uncontrollable rage.
Does the dark young man leave the village, and his only friend, to seek his destiny? Or shall he stay, risking his rage could ruin everything?
In the world of the YA graphic novel, Naifeh and Wucinich have a fabulous track record, so it’s no surprise that we’ve got high hopes for Kriss: The Gift of Wrath. And, once you’ve seen the Comicon.com preview, we know you will too… enjoy!
