ETHEREAL FANTASY SERIES ARCLIGHT
COLLECTED IN PAPERBACK THIS MARCH
Collecting issues #1-4 of Brandon Graham
and Marian Churchland’s 8HOUSE story
Fan-favorite comics creators Brandon Graham (KING CITY, PROPHET, ISLAND) and Marian Churchland (FROM UNDER MOUNTAINS, BEAST) will release a trade paperback collection of the first four issues of their dream-like fantasy series ARCLIGHT this March from Image Comics.
Sharp genderqueer knights, blood magic, death gods, astral projection, and a goose: ARCLIGHT has it all. Her mind trapped in a strange alien body, a lady of the blood house hides on the outskirts of her kingdom, until she learns that an alien monster pretending to be her has taken her place.
“ARCLIGHT seems to be an attack on the binary—an exploration of conformity and identity—and those themes carry the material past its shared universe setting. It’s a slow, more deliberate burn; it’s the kind of book you linger with rather than tear through.” —Multiversity Comics
“In only a few panels, Graham and Churchland suggest an ancient world, rich in its own customs and history, with a unique flora and fauna as well as its own systems of governance and magic.” —CBR
“ARCLIGHT is a story of solemn grace that gently pulls you into its story, titillating your imagination, and makes you want more.” —AiPT!
ARCLIGHT TP (Diamond code: DEC160751, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0097-2) hits comic book stores Wednesday, March 22nd and bookstores Tuesday, March 28th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, February 20th.
