Image Comics And Éditions Dupuis Announce Text Free New Series ‘Step By Bloody Step’ By Spurrier, Matías And Lopes
by Olly MacNamee
Grand Prix and multiple Eisner award nominees Si Spurrier (X-Men), Matías Bergara (Coda), and Matheus Lopes (Supergirl) present new comic book series Step By Bloody Step from Image Comics and Éditions Dupuis. A four-part mini series that will be presented without a single word of text included! Meaning the artwork simply cannot be ignored.
“An armored giant and a helpless child. Together they cross an astonishing world brimming with beasts, bandits, and—deadliest by far—civilizations. If they stop walking, the earth itself forces them onwards. Why? The child can’t ask. She and her guardian have no words, no memory, nothing—except each other.”
Spurrier elaborates on this new collaborative project that will be published by the two companies:
“My last collaboration with Matías Bergara, Coda, has picked up awards and nominations everywhere it’s gone. We knew our follow-up had to be even more ambitious. We set our sights on nothing less than a step-change in fantasy comics. Step By Bloody Step resounds with all the elements I love most—magic, mystery, monstrosity and the bond between two lost souls—but above all it’s an opportunity for Bergara and Lopes to shatter your senses with peerless storytelling spectacle and raw emotion. Love, after all, transcends any mere language.”
Look out for Step By Bloody Step #1 in February from Image with a French edition coming from Éditions Dupuis in June 2022.
