Afua Richardson’s Aquarius: The Book of Mer Makes Waves this May

Eisner Award-winning talent Afua Richardson will take a deep dive into mythology with the forthcoming series, Aquarius: The Book of Mer. This all-new, quarterly series from Image Comics is set to make waves in May.

A visionary new comic, Aquarius: The Book of Mer is a modern retelling of mermaid myths and legends from all over the world. In 1983 Harlem, something surfaces from the haunted lake of Astara’s dreams. She’s plagued by visions of Ancestors, monsters, and Merfolk. What will she sacrifice to finally have peace? 

Aquarius: The Book of Mer will also feature an alternate cover by David Mack and be accompanied by music for a unique storytelling experience.

Aquarius: The Book of Mer #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 19.
