WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Four anthology-style one-shots explore classic witch stories and fairy tales from all over the world, each told by a different creator with a breathtaking style and original voice. It’s tales of magic and wonder as only these storytellers could imagine them.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: S.M. Vidaurri, writer and watercolor illustrator of the award-winning graphic novel IRON: OR, THE WAR AFTER, unfolds the stunning tale of "The Magic Swan Goose & the Lord of the Forest." When her brother is kidnapped by a witch, a young princess must venture into the mysterious forest beyond the castle. There, the Lord of the Forest, an armor clad spirit who watches over the wilderness, comes to her aid, but the princess must rely on her wits to discover who she can trust before her family is cursed forever.
What It Is: Dragons have taken many different shapes in cultures across the world, from serpents and "worms" to thunderbirds and the classic European firebreather. In this first issue, Fabian Rangel Jr. (Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard) and artist Daniel Bayliss (Translucid) bring us "Son of the Serpent," inspired by Native American stories about the Horned Snake and the Thunderbird.
