Visionary creator Devin Kraft brings his music and mythology mash-up Silenceto Literati Press Comics. Silence will be a 5-issue limited series launching with issue 1 hitting shops April 26 [Diamond Previews Code: FEB231563].
Silence is a story about music and its power to hold things together even as the world falls apart. Returning to her hometown of Anthem, a down-on-its-luck seaport, Johanna Jones discovers the ship her father sailed on has gone missing. She ends up aboard a yellow submarine named the Heart of Gold headed directly into Hades’ Hexagon to find the missing crew, accompanied by her childhood best friend, a rich young addict, and a punk legend. Along the way, the quartet will form unlikely bonds, face astonishing threats, and rock the @#$% out.
Kraft burst onto the indie comics scene in 2013 with Dragon Slayer, a story about the price of pride and revenge, which raised over $25,000 on Kickstarter. In addition to his hit Neverender (Sumerian Comics), Kraft also draws Samurai Odyssey and provided art for The Garden of Galahad. He has also worked as an illustrator and designer across many media. Based in the DFW-metroplex, Kraft has lived in Tokyo and is originally from Roswell, New Mexico.
Silence will be available monthly beginning in April 2023 in comic book shops everywhere.
