The new book from Archaia & BOOM! is now in stores! (Amazon next week!
)The Starless Queen is plotting an invasion of Spera, and has sent the merciless General Zeal to secure its capital. Unfortunately for her, the Queen’s obsession with killing Princesses Pira and Lono — her only daughter, and the last link to a conquered kingdom — has resulted in the pair learning of her plans through captured scouts.
What began for the Princesses as a hunt for treasure is now a perilous journey to warn the Speran King, leading Pira and Lono up a monster-infested mountain, through a village populated by crazed warriors, and down dark tunnels walled with madness itself.
Spera: Ascension of the Starless Vol. 1 is written and edited by Josh Tierney, with cover art and character designs by Afu Chan. The main story is illustrated by Giannis Milonogiannis, Atelier Sentô, Mindy Lee, Sourya Sihachakr and Valentin Seiche.
