Curt Pires, Tony Pires, and Alex Diotto Explore Hope and Loss in Olympia
Image Comics has announced an all-new miniseries by Curt Pires, his father, Tony Pires, and artist Alex Diotto, Olympia, which will launch this November.
Olympia follows Elon, a latchkey kid who spends his days alone reading comic books—until his favorite superhero, Olympian, comes crashing off the page and into reality! But as he nurses his wounded and delirious hero back to health, he discovers Olympian isn’t the only thing that came through… something evil followed him.
A comedic yet heartfelt love letter to the comics medium, Olympia is also a meditation on hope and loss, co-conceived by the Pires together while Tony was undergoing treatment for cancer.
Olympia #1 Cover A by Alex Diotto and Dee Cunniffe (Diamond Code SEP190047) and Olympia #1 Cover B by Christian Ward (Diamond Code SEP190048) will hit stores on Wednesday, November 20.
