Media Release — Originally serialized in ISLAND, cartoonist Grim Wilkins’ (PROPHET: EARTH WAR) experimental fantasy adventure series MIRENDA will be collected in an oversized trade paperback this October.
When a jungle-dwelling woman discovers a mysterious demon trapped in her leg, she sets off on an extraordinary adventure to get it out. A deeply visual—and nearly silent—graphic novel, MIRENDA plays with the possibilities of the medium, taking up the torch left by the works of Moebius and Frazetta.
“MIRENDA is a uniquely enjoyable reading experience,” said Wilkins. “I hope people have as much fun reading it as I did making it!”
MIRENDA (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0844-2) hits comics shops on Wednesday, October 31st and bookstores on Tuesday, November 6th. It is available for preorder via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
Select praise for MIRENDA:
“The use of visual storytelling along with Grim’s amazing use of color is like nothing else in comics.” —Brandon Graham (MULTIPLE WARHEADS, KING CITY)
“You could read Mirenda quickly, because it’s a silent adventure without all those cumbersome ‘words’ to slow you down, but STOP THAT. Cool your jets. Kill your distractions. Linger over each page and take a vacation of the mind into this stunningly beautiful, dreamlike fantasy. It’s great and I love it!” —Damon Gentry (Sabertooth Swordsman, Vinegar Teeth)
“10 exciting new adventures out of 10!” —Carrie McClain, for Black Nerd Problems
