Dark Horse’s Berger Books imprint, headed up by former Vertigo editor Karen Berger, welcomes a new book by G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward into the fold next year — Invisible Kingdom.
“It’s a delight to be working with my mentor Karen Berger once again, especially on such an exciting project,” said G. Willow Wilson in a statement. “Christian Ward’s art is truly visionary—this is one of the most dynamic collaborations I’ve ever been involved with. I can’t wait to show the world what we’ve cooked up.”
Seriously, check out Ward’s awesome cover:
Dark Horse describes it as an “epic multi-part sci-fi saga” about two women—”one a young religious acolyte, and the other, a hard-bitten freighter pilot, who separately uncover an unholy conspiracy between the leader of the Renunciation, the system’s dominant religion, and Lux, the all-consuming mega-corporation that controls society.”
“I’m thrilled not only to be returning to a big creator-owned sci-fi world, but to be working with Karen Berger and G. Willow Wilson,” said Ward. “Karen’s amazing career has helped to shape me as a creator, and with Willow–I don’t think there’s anyone today who writes with more warmth, humor, or humanity. Nobody writes better, more relatable characters than her! We’re already buzzing with excitement about all the weird and wonderful places that we’re taking this whole new assemble of instantly lovable characters. I hope you join us as we go somewhere amazing.”
The new series debuts next March.
