PORTLAND, OR, 04/11/2018 — Image Comics is thrilled to announce that the debut issue of Brenden Fletcher and Karl Kerschl’s luminous fantasy series ISOLA is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.
Rook, the captain of the Royal Guard, has fled the capital of the kingdom of Maar with Queen Olwyn, who suffers under the effects of a terrible spell. As the kingdom inches every closer to the brink of war, their only hope of restoring Olwyn to the throne lies in the mythical land of ISOLA—also known as the land of the dead.
