Lion Forge Reveals Jeff Weigel’s Quantum Mechanics, the First Title Under the Caracal Imprint
Lion Forge has unveiled plans for the first title under the Caracal banner. Jeff Weigel‘s Quantum Mechanics will be the first comic to be released up the comic publisher’s imprint. The imprint is aimed at readers ages 8 to 12.
Growing up on her father’s salvage yard on a remote, barren asteroid, Rox has always wanted to experience more of the galaxy. Her best pal, the natural mechanic Zam, has always wanted better spacecraft to tinker on. When a space hauler arrives one day with a broken tractor beam, the kids think this might be just their chance to earn some money to repair one of the junked spaceships and set out on adventures. But when it turns out the captain of the hauler is none other than the dread space pirate known as Red Myk, adventure is exactly what they get!
After being kidnapped, Rox and Zam encounter a group of down-on-their-luck space truckers, forced into piracy after a shipping conglomerate took control of a wormhole and effectively put an end to transport operations in that region of space. A final confrontation with the shipping conglomerate will force the two to make decisions and alliances that will directly affect the future of their quadrant of space.
This fun new book will be released in finer comic shops everywhere on October 10, and in bookstores on October 23.
