If you’ve been reading the Image! 30th anniversary anthology, then you are already familiar with Kaya, the new comic written and drawn by Deadly Class artist Wes Craig.
Kaya is the story of a young girl tasked with delivering her brother to a secret haven and has to fight her way across a brutal world filled with mutants and monsters.
“I’m putting every bit of heart, action, and fun that I can into each issue,” said Craig. “Kaya, her brother Jin and the strange world they live in are very real to me, and I think readers are gonna have a blast discovering it, month in, month out.”
