MONSTERS, MAGIC, AND FANTASTIC ADVENTURES ABOUND IN RIFTWORLD LEGENDS . . .
“This is my life’s work. Only now, as I cower in exile and all those I have ever loved are dead, do I dare reveal it. Take these pages to heart, and quick! For the Great Thinning is upon us, and soon history shall be made to answer for her crimes. For my part, I await the inevitable . . . unburdened, knowing I have served the will of legends.”
These words open the vibrant, electric new comic series, Riftworld Legends. Expanding the world of the award-winning digital series Riftworld Chronicles, the comic is set in the late thirteenth century on the mythical lost continent of Hy-Breasal. When two seamen are marooned on its hostile and uncharted shores, they are launched into a sprawling adventure filled with magic, mythical beasts, and strange, non-human races. Their struggle for survival becomes an epic historical saga as the men rise from simple deckhands to heroes of legend when the worlds of myth and man collide.
The ten-issue, digital-first comic series launched on June 28, 2017, and is available on comiXology, Apple, Amazon, and Kobo. Look for the comics in stores this coming spring.
Series creator Jonathan Williams will be celebrating the series' print debut at Joe Books's booth (#839) at Fan Expo Canada this weekend. Don't miss this exclusive signing while preview copies last!
