For one hot minute back in 2016, Chip Zdarsky, Kris Anka and Matt Wilson teamed up on Marvel’s Star-Lord, but the title seemingly ended almost as soon as it began. Which is a shame, because they seemed to be having a lot of fun on it.
Cut to 2019, and the team’s back together — this time on an Image Comics miniseries called The White Trees.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Kris and Matt again!” bellowed Zdarsky. “Are they thrilled to be working with me again? It really doesn’t matter as I tricked them into signing a contract by using the words ‘hot fantasy.’ Legally, they have to illustrate this tale of fraught relationships forged in war and the complexities of fatherhood. Or suffer the consequences.”
According to the press release, The White Trees is set in a fantasy world called Blacksand, where three former warriors-turned-fathers reunite to find their missing children.
The series will have two oversized issues—which will tell a complete story—with The White Trees #1 hitting shelves in August.
