Prism Stalker, a psychedelic sci-fi comic that won heaps of critical praise last year, is getting its first trade collection reprinted with a new cover from creator Sloane Leong as well as some other extras.
In addition to that new cover (pictured here) the reprinted Prism Stalker Vol. 1 trade will also feature a new logo designed by Darius Ou and a new afterword written by Mandy co-screenwriter Aaron Stewart-Ahn. Prism Stalker was already riding high coming into the new year, after landing on a number of year-end best of lists, including those belonging to Paste Magazine, The Onion’s AV Club, and Entertainment Weekly.
For those who are unfamiliar, Prism Stalker features a striking psychedelic aesthetic and a story about a newly-discovered planet that is rich with psychic life and telekinetic ecology. The plot involves a protagonist, who is a refugee of a far away destroyed planet, being chosen by a private military firm to help settle this new planet. The hero must fight the planet itself as it exerts power over her.
This new trade will be available on February 27. Full PR from Image is below:
