The intensely collaborative creative team of Emma Ríos and Hwei Lim will launch a new story arc in their ongoing fantasy series Mirror this March.
Mirror #6 steps a half a century back from the events of the first arc. Fifty years before the human colony on Irzah took its first stumbling steps, in the utopian dreamlands of Synchronia, a young artist woke something—something that had long slept in ancient stone ruins.
Mirror #6 (Diamond code: JAN170710) arrives in stores Wednesday, March 15th.

In 2014, Brandon Graham will team up with four different creators to bring a series of science-fiction/fantasy miniseries set in a world ruled by eight houses to life.
The first of the series will be 8House: Kiem, written by Graham and drawn by Xurxo Penalta and follows a soldier who must project her mind into the body of her dead twin in order to fight monsters on a distant comet.
The second of the series is titled 8House: Arclight, written by Graham and featuring art by Marian Churchland. Arclight will bring readers the chilling story of a high-ranking lady of one of the houses who has her mind trapped in a monster’s body. She will soon learn that the monster trapped in her body has taken over her old life in her absence.
The last of the series will be 8House: Mirror, and will be written by Emma Ríos and drawn by Hwei Lim. 8House: Mirror will examine what it means to be “human” and promises to take readers on an ironic space opera battle between self-absorbed humans intent on their own survival and noble monsters striving to save their worlds.
