SISTERS BOUND BY BLOOD IN CARBON GREY VOLUME TWO
“Daughters of Stone” hits stores in June

The dieselpunk world of Hoang Nguyen’s CARBON GREY first dazzled comic book readers with its beautiful painted art, intrigue-fueled action, and compelling heroines in August 2011 with the “Sisters at War” story arc. Now, Nguyen has assembled his creative team once more to continue the story of the Sisters Grey with the publication of CARBON GREY VOLUME TWO: DAUGHTERS OF STONE #1 in June.

At the close of volume one, the sisters’ relationship was torn apart by the murder of the Kaiser of Mitteleuropa, the man whom they were sworn to protect. Now, with Eva and Giselle in exile and the vicious Anna on the hunt for conspirators, the fourth Grey, Mathilde, is on a quest to discover the truth about the source of her family’s power.

A Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the new volume of CARBON GREY reached its funding goal on April 14. Nguyen explained that both the intensity of the artistic process, with each page meticulously hand-painted, and the depth of research behind the creation of CARBON GREY necessitated the campaign.

“A lot of research goes into every page, whether it’s a costume designs or different settings,” said Nguyen. “I want to make sure that it’s believable. My inspirations comes from looking at fashion, photography, architecture, industrial and set design. I like to go beyond the norm and bring something new and different to my drawings.”

CARBON GREY VOLUME TWO: DAUGHTERS OF STONE is a three-issue monthly mini series, co-written by Nguyen, Paul Gardner, and Khari Evans, with art by Nguyen, Evans, and Kinsun Loh. The first issue (APR120424) is available for pre-order in the April issue of Previews (cover A by Khari Evans and Kinsun Loh, cover B by Hoang Nguyen) and will be in stores on June 6.

The three issues of CARBON GREY VOLUME ONE have sold out, but a trade paperback (ISBN 978-1-60706-448-0) is available. A two-issue mini-series CARBON GREY: ORIGINS, about the childhoods of the Sisters Grey and their family history, wrapped up in March 2012. THE ART OF CARBON GREY (ISBN 978-1-60706-474-9), an oversized hardcover book featuring an array of artwork from the series and a look at the artists’ process, was released in February 2012.

SISTERS AT WAR

Image Comics goes to war this March with CARBON GREY

Berkeley, CA – 4 January 2011 – At the birth of the industrial age, a great war is raging. Sister hunts sister as gods are betrayed and enemies ascend to power…

In March, Image Comics enters the maelstrom with the release of CARBON GREY #1, a stunning foray into our world’s secret history. Hoang Nguyen (Punisher War Zone, Metal Militia), Khari Evans (Shanna the She-Devil), Paul Gardner, and Mike Kennedy (Aeon Flux, Lone Wolf and Cub 2100) pen the thrilling tale. The indescribably gorgeous artwork for the series is courtesy of Nguyen, Evans, and Kinsun Loh.

“CARBON GREY has been an eight-year journey, a true labor of love,” says Nguyen. “We’ve been consumed with this project, and we’re so happy that Image Comics is helping us get it into readers’ hands. I hope readers will feel the same passion we do for the book.”

Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson adds, “I’m really happy we’re finally releasing CARBON GREY. Jimmy Palmiotti introduced me to Hoang at WonderCon last year, and I picked the book up on the spot. The amount of dedication and craft on display in the pitch was nothing short of astounding: The beauty and detail in the art, the freshness of the story — it just blew me away — and I’m thrilled that a year later, we’re able to share this wonderful project with fans everywhere.”

For generations, the Sisters Grey have protected and counseled the Kaiser, ruler of Mitteleuropa.
