Lion Forge Comics is back with another major reveal! After making a promise to the fans of creating “Comics for Everyone” they live up to that promise with Hunters, an all-new fantasy epic told through what they are calling “a diverse cast of today’s top creative talent”.
“One of the core themes of Hunters is perseverance, of seeing things through to the end no matter what obstacles arise, and what this might mean for different people,” says co-creator Josh Tierney. “This can be seen as true for the project itself, which has been created over the course of several years through the hard work of the many incredible artists and writers involved. Our team of creative warriors has built an entirely new fantasy world filled with high-stakes adventure and a diverse cast of memorable heroes and villains, and we look forward to readers joining us on the hunt!”
“Hunters is a unique collaborative approach to create something that lives between a graphic novel and an anthology,” says co-creator Paul Maybury. “It’s a shared universe that debuts in one stunning collection anchored by a compelling singular narrative. Boasting a diverse cast of characters in a multitude of styles, Hunters has something for every comic reader.”
Lion Forge gives us a look at what this story is about! Famed warrior Azarias has gathered a small army of varied adventurers on a quest to gather the dust of a distant island god in order to save the life of their king. Along the way, they encounter numerous beasts and monsters, all in the process of gathering artifacts necessary to locate the island god before ultimately defeating it. Throughout the course of the adventure, the band disperses into small groups with individual objectives in order to cover more ground in shorter order. These individual side-story adventures reveal more about each of the many unique and intriguing characters and their different interactions in different combinations.
Co-created by Paul Maybury and Josh Tierney, this epic anthology taps Miguel Valderrama, Carlos Valderrama, Afu Chan, Devin Kraft, Niami, Meg Gandy, Jared Morgan, Irene Koh, Kyla Vanderklugt, Benjamin Marra, Alexis Ziritt, Travel Foreman, Carlos Carrasco, Vlad Gusev, and Ramon Sierra for an epic high fantasy tale.
