PORTLAND, OR, 05/17/2018 — Image Comics is thrilled to announce that the first and second issues of the new hit fantasy series ISOLA—from acclaimed writer Brenden Fletcher (MOTOR CRUSH, Gotham Academy) and Eisner-winning storyteller and artist Karl Kerschl (Gotham Academy, The Abominable Charles Christopher)—are being rushed back to print in order to meet customer demand.
Queen Olwyn, suffering under the effects of a terrible spell, has fled her kingdom’s capital city with only her loyal Captain of the Royal Guard, Rook, for company—and for protection. With their supplies dwindling and their steps hounded by ruthless hunting clans, Rook leads her queen down a road fraught with peril…but it’s a road they must walk if they’re to restore Olwyn to the throne.
ISOLA #1, 3rd printing (Diamond code: APR188160) and ISOLA #2, 2nd printing (Diamond code: APR188161) will hit stores Wednesday, June 13th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 21st.
