Who was the flying woman, and why did she do what she did? Those questions have driven Luna Brewster throughout the two She Could Fly miniseries. Written by Christopher Cantwell and illustrated by Martín Morazzo and Miroslav Mrva, the Berger Books series, recently optioned for television development by AMC, has followed Luna as she tries to uncover the truth about Mayura Howard, the mysterious flying woman, while also dealing with her own mental health issues. As her journey has continued, Luna has found a kinship with Mayura through the woman’s journals, for good or ill. The series has been harrowing, occasionally creepy, and always riveting. And in She Could Fly: The Lost Pilot #5, Luna finds herself face-to-face with Mayura’s family—and the answers she’s been seeking. How will she handle the truth once she learns it? Will the voices in her head finally quiet, or will they become louder than ever?
Check out a preview of She Could Fly: The Lost Pilot #5, exclusive to The Beat, below. The final issue of the series’ second arc is due out digitally and in stores next Wednesday, August 14th.
