Little Bird #1, a creator-owned book that debuted last month to wide-spread acclaim, is getting a third printing.
The comic will also get a new cover, one that prominently features a snow owl (see above). Little Bird, for the unfamiliar, is a new book from Image Comics. It is ostensibly writer/screenwriter Darcy Van Poelgeest’s first foray into comics, illustrated by Ian Bertram (House of Penance).
A summary of Little Bird #1 from Image follows:
In the world of Little Bird, North America has been devastated by three decades of war as the American Empire expands under an ultra-nationalist, theocratic government. But from the ashes of defeat rises Little Bird, a 12-year-old girl who sets out to reignite the Canadian Resistance and discover her own identity in a world on fire.
Featuring the same limitless scope as a new East of West or Saga—and the drama and surrealism of Akira—Little Bird follows a young resistance fighter in a science-fiction style reminiscent of Alejandro Jodorowsky.
