On her blog, Colleen Doran has announced a new collected edition of A DISTANT SOIL, her long running signature work.
With the kind permission of my boss Jim Valentino of Shadowline, the fine Image Comics imprint that brings you many popular books like Morning Glories, behold the cover of the new edition of A Distant Soil Volume I. This will be released with new edits, new lettering, cleaned up and restored art, and, obviously, new covers and design. This will be the first new edition since 1997.
Am SF epic about two psionic teenagers on the run in a hostile empire, A DISTANT SOIL has been running on and off since the80s. It’s been mostly off for many years as Doran has concentrated on other work, but you can read the whole thing online, starting right here.
