‘Immortals: Fenyx Rising’ Delivers All-Ages Greek Mythology This September
by James Ferguson
Greek mythology is filled with all sorts of amazing stories, some more scandalous than others. This September, Dark Horse Comics explores them through an all-ages lens with Immortals Fenyx Rising: From Great Beginnings. Written by Ben Kahn and illustrated by Georgeo Brooks, the original graphic novel explores what it truly means to be a god with a fun, humorous, action-packed adventure.
Fenyx enjoys her new life on Mount Olympos, but when her hometown suddenly gets hit by strange earthquakes, she has to investigate. Back at home, she reunites with her human father —to his shock, he learns that gods are real. Fenyx’s mom, who had kept her godhood under the radar, cautions her that such a life has its drawbacks and things get messy when Zeus makes an appearance. As the earthquakes continue to rupture the earth, dangerous creatures emerge, past foes return, old flames reignite, and history is once again in the making! It’s time for the gods to team up to fight as a family!
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Dark Horse comics on the next chapter of Fenyx’s adventure. Ben and Georgeo tell this riveting tale with humor, heart and soul. Can’t wait to share it with all of you!” said Jeffrey Yohalem, narrative director of Immortals Fenyx Rising at Ubisoft.
Immortals Fenyx Rising: From Great Beginnings clocks in at 64 pages and will retail for $12.99. It’s set for release on September 22nd, 2021 at your local comic shop and on October 5th, 2021 at bookstores and Amazon.
