Greg Rucka, Robert Mackenzie, Dave Walker, and Justin Greenwood Guide Your Next Journey in Compass
In collaboration with bestselling writer/creator Greg Rucka, writers Robert Mackenzie and Dave Walker team up with artist Justin Greenwood to take readers on a breathless journey in the forthcoming Compass. This all-new, five-issue miniseries will launch from Image Comics in June.
Mackenzie in the announcement said:
Compass was born out of our desire to tell a story of discovery without colonialism, of adventure without exploitation—something with the verve and energy of the pulps, but with a perspective that hadn’t been seen much in that genre. Getting there was its own process of discovery, and it’s been a joy to work with co-creators who have the talent to truly unearth Shahidah‘s quest. I’m so pleased to be able to share Compass with the world.
In Compass, readers meet Shahidah El-Amin, a main character who is many things: scholar, cartographer, astronomer, mathematician, scientist, explorer, adventurer, and—when need be—two-fisted fighter. Setting out from Baghdad’s legendary House of Wisdom during the Islamic Golden Age, Shahi’s quest brings her to 13th-century Britain…where the Welsh are whispered to possess the secret of eternal life. But Shahi’s not the only one after it…
Compass #1 (Diamond Code APR210113) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 16.
