Joining in on the newsletter bandwagon is Ahoy Comics, and if you are a fan you might want to sign up yourself as it gives us a run-down on preview and new releases.In their first mailout alone we get to learn of a new series debuting April 1st called Ash & Thorn from writer Mariah McCourt and artist Soo Lee and featuring covers by Jill Thompson.
Although we’ve only got the briefest of looks at artwork and character designs for this pensioner-powered series, from writer Mariah McCourt and artist Soo Lee and featuring covers by Jill Thompson, with the plot outline for issues #1 and #2 also included, we get a good idea of what’s in store for readers. The coming of the Apocalypse and two little old – but nowhere near defenceless – ladies who could very well stand in the way. But, only after a nice cup of tea, of course. Sound like my kind of people.
The apocalypse is nigh! The world needs a Champion, and the only heir to a sacred mystical lineage is…a little old lady? Meet Lottie Thorn, reluctant savior of the world, and her also-elderly trainer Lady Peruvia Ashlington-Voss. They might not look it, but these women are prepared to take on any Big Bad that comes along. But first, perhaps a nice cup of tea?
