Colorist Raul Angulo, letterer Jim Campbell, and designer Tim Daniel round out the creative team.
Read a synopsis of the tale below:
Civil war rages in the Empire of Parsa, and famine has struck. As the seasons refuse to turn, Princess Sera receives a vision from the deity Mitra telling her to find the Royal Stars and restore them to the heavens. Despite her kingdom and her troops’ need of her command, Sera embarks on a quest to find the fallen stars-now trapped on earth-and save her people from dearth and death. Author Jon Tsuei takes readers on an epic fantasy quest through the Persian landscape, beautifully drawn by Audrey Mock and brought to life through Raúl Angulo’s colors, with lettering by Jim Campbell.
Sera and the Royal Stars Volume 1 trade paperback edition will be available in stores on Wednesday January 15. Ahead of the release, The Beat received the entire first issue of the series. Read it here for free before heading out to your favorite local comic shop to purchase the collection.
