Dark Horse Comics has announced its latest project from the Berger Books imprint (headed by iconic comic editor Karen Berger) Invisible Kingdom, by G. Willow Wilson and Christian Ward.
Wilson said of the project, “It’s a delight to be working with my mentor Karen Berger once again, especially on such an exciting project. Christian Ward’s art is truly visionary — this is one of the most dynamic collaborations I’ve ever been involved with. I can’t wait to show the world what we’ve cooked up.”
Invisible Kingdom follows the story of two women in a distant galaxy – one a fight pilot, and the other a religious follower – who uncover a conspiracy connecting the galaxy’s dominant religion and corporation. This comic sees Wilson return to the creator-owned comic book work for the first time since Air, her 2008 series which was edited by Berger, hence why she refers to her as her “mentor.”
Ward, best known for his work on Marvel’s critically-acclaimed Black Bolt series, is also excited to be a part of the project, “I’m thrilled not only to be returning to a big creator-owned sci-fi but to be working with Karen Berger and G. Willow Wilson. Karen’s amazing career has helped to shape me as a creator, and with Willow, I don’t think there’s anyone today who writes with more warmth, humour or humanity. Nobody writes better, more relatable characters than her! We’re already buzzing with excitement about all the weird and wonderful places that we’re taking this whole new assemble of instantly lovable characters. I hope you join us as we go somewhere amazing.”
Invisible Kingdom will launch in March 2019.
