Webcomic sensation Emily Carroll has joined the team on Spera, the graphic novel edition of a long-running online comic by Josh Tierney. Arachaia is publishing the print edition, which includes art by Kyla Vanderklugt, Hwei Lin Lim and Carroll.
Lono’s life as a princess consisted of sitting, reading, and dreaming—until the day Pira, princess of a neighboring kingdom, arrived with news of a waking nightmare! With the help of Pira’s best friend—a fire spirit in the form of a dog named Yonder—the princesses now find themselves in a race against evil. The goal: Spera, a magical realm of which the princesses had only ever heard the tallest tales. The prize: their very lives!
The accompanying cover art wasn’t ID’d but it’s nice whoever did it.
