Copperhead and Noble Causes writer Jay Faerber will team with artist Sumeyye Kesgin to reveal what really happened to famed aviator Amelia Earhart in a story involving alien worlds and flying beasts. Elsewhere debuts from Image Comics this August.
“Elsewhere is the kind of series I’ve wanted to tackle for a long time, with exotic characters, fantastic creatures, and huge scope,” Faerber said in a press release. “But I needed a relatable character to hang everything on. I found that character in Amelia Earhart—she’s inspiring, courageous, and most of all, real. And I’ve found the perfect partner to help me navigate this thrilling adventure: artist Sumeyye Kesgin. She’s incredible, and absolutely vital to bringing this world to life.”
Kesgin, who worked on Top Cow’s Rise of the Magi, said she’s enjoying working with Faerber to build this world. “He’s one of the best writers I’ve ever known, and I was really fascinated when he first showed me the outline of the story. I am having fun while creating the entire Elsewhere universe because of my love for fantasy and aerial concepts, and I feel really honored, as a female artist, to draw Amelia Earhart.”
Here’s how Image describes the series:
Somehow transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and baffling alien civilizations, Amelia desperately struggles to return home. Along the way, she forges alliances and makes enemies as she goes from aviatrix to freedom fighter in a rebellion against a merciless warlord!
