FROM STAR WARS AUTHOR GEORGE MANN AND DRACO STUDIOS’ NEW PUBLISHING ARM, DRAKHA PRESS – THE RISE OF ITZA GRAPHIC NOVEL.
Set In The Dragonbond Universe, The Rise of Itza Tells Of A Young Necromancer’s Quest To Protect Her People From A Truly Devastating Threat.
Sunday Times bestselling novelist, comics writer, and screenwriter George Mann (Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes) and artist Mariano Laclaustra (Doctor Who, Rivers of London, Newbury & Hobbes) combine to create Dragonbond Legends: The Rise of Itza. This stunning graphic novel is the first release from Drakha Press, the new publishing house of Draco Studios.
Launching on Kickstarter on 14th March, The Rise of Itza explores the origin story of Itza Chapula as she fights to defend her people from the threat of war, armies of both the living and the dead, and a dragon hell-bent on the destruction of her home. Beautifully colourised by Carlos Cabrera (Titan Comics, Marvel Comics, and acclaimed Hollywood movie Black Swan) and with lettering by Andrew James, The Rise of Itza has all the hallmarks of a new cult fantasy series.
‘A hero is about to be born in this grand, epic fantasy from the writer of Star Wars: Myths & Fables, Dark Souls: The Breath of Andolus and Engineward.’
