House of Slay, the fashion collective formed by prominent fashion world figures Prabal Gurung, Phillip Lim, Laura Kim, Tina Leung, and Ezra Williams, has kicked off a new season of their hit superhero webcomic on the Tapas and WEBTOON platforms. The series, created in partnership with XRM Media and EEP Universe, follows superpowered versions of the fashion icons as they combat the fear of “other” and build a community of love, hope, and solidarity.
Season 1 — complete and available online now — chronicled the novice heroes’ chance encounter with a magical artifact, their newfound powers rooted in ancient legend, and their first encounter with a power-hungry villain fueled by the world’s hate and fear. Season 2’s five short stories widen the scope with new heroes, new antagonists, and new shades of intolerance and bigotry for House of Slay to challenge. It kicks off with “Slay in LA” by writer Amy Chu and artist Fabian Lelay, in which a trip to Los Angeles reveals there’s much more magic in the world than what they experienced last season.
Four more stories on this globe-spanning, mythos-expanding adventure were created by writers Barbara Perez Marquez, Cherish Chen, Henry Barajas, and Deron Bennett, and artists Dominic Bustamante, Ashley Liu, Louie Chin, and Lynne Yoshii, with key art and character designs by Kevin Wada.
