The first volume of ‘The Hunger and the Dusk’ is $1.99 on Comixology today

Catch up on G. Willow Wilson and Chris Wildgoose’s epic fantasy before the second arc begins next month.

Last year award-winning writer G. Willow Wilson teamed up with artist Chris Wildgoose on The Hunger and the Dusk, a “high fantasy tour de force,” as the marketing billed it, and they weren’t lying. The series featured a dying world inhabited by humans and orcs who were once mortal enemies, but had to put their differences aside to face a powerfully brutal ancient race called the Vangol that threatened them both.

If that sounds intriguing, then this is your lucky week: not only has IDW released the first six issues — book one — as a trade paperback, but its available for the low price of $1.99 right now on Comixology.

And it comes at an opportune time, because next month will bring the the first issue of Book Two.

The second series will raise the stakes,as the human-orc alliance starts falling apart and the aptly-named “Last Men Standing” find themselves in desperate need of a healer.

“We’re thrilled by the enthusiastic response to Book One and we can’t wait for readers to find out what happens in the next arc of this journey,” Wilson said. “There are some epic battles coming, along with what I hope will be some very satisfying reunions between certain characters. The war for survival teaches you who your real friends and allies are, and in The Hunger and the Dusk our heroes find those friends in unexpected places.” 

This next chapter brings back the creative team of Wilson, Wildgoose, colorist MSassyK and letterer Simon Bowland. Cliff Chiang also returns with another variant cover for the first issue:

I have no idea how long the first trade will stay at $1.99, so grab it while you can. The first issue of Book Two arrives in stores July 10.
