A Bittersweet Adventure Obsession Arrives in Angelic, Vol. 1

Eisner-nominated writer Simon Spurrier and star artist Caspar Wijngaard present readers with an all-new Young Adult fantasy adventure in Angelic, Vol. 1: Heirs & Graces. It will collect issues #1-6 of the series and hit stores this May.

Winged monkeys! Techno-dolphins! Quantum alleycats! In Angelic, humanity’s long gone. Its memory lingers only as misunderstood rituals among mankind’s leftovers: the genetically modified animals they used and abused for eons. But for one young flying monkey, QORA, the routines are unbearable. All she wants is to explore. Instead she’s expected to settle down, to become a mother…to lose her wings.

Angelic, Vol. 1 is a powerful and timely parable about religion, repression and female rebellion, but all layered beneath joyous animal antics in the ruins of civilization. Expect WALL-E by way of Animal Farm in a watershed title among YA comics, which will tug at readers’ heartstrings.

Angelic, Vol. 1 (Diamond Code MAR180601, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0663-9) will hit stores on Wednesday, May 9th and bookstores on Tuesday, May 15th.
