The creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and André Lima Araújo are preparing to release Phenomena Book 2 this year, the second of a planned sci-fi adventure trilogy from the team.

The book is set for release on April 23, and guess what? Today The Beat has six interior pages of it to share with you. Get hyped.

You can find those pages below, after the jump, the jump being a description of the book from the publisher. Enjoy!

A young boy named Boldon, a mysterious girl named Matilde, and the warrior Spike—survivors of a phenomena that took over Earth years ago. Not an apocalypse . . . something far more interesting.

Following their adventure in The Golden City of EyesMatilde’s Quest brings our trio to Valentia Verona (formerly London, England)—one of the most fantastical places on the planet. There, with the help of Boldon and Spike, her newfound friends, Matilde is determined to confront the reason she was cast from her home to wander the land in the first place. But as they stop at each village Matilde has been protecting along the way, they begin to realize that rumors of their exploits are more widespread than they imagined. They are becoming legend and folklore. And with their mythology comes new threats. In a world where story is currency, they are becoming a powerful force to be reckoned with . . . and, at the same time, attracting attention from both bounty hunters and forces of darkness beyond their understanding.
