SKYWARD LAUNCH SOARS TO SUCCESS, REVEALS A 2ND PRINTING COVER BY JOCK
PORTLAND, OR, 04/26/2018 — Writer Joe Henderson (showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer) and artist Lee Garbett (Lucifer, Loki: Agent of Asgard) defy gravity with their hot new series launch SKYWARD. The first issue of the popular new series is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with customer demand and the 2nd printing cover will feature breathtaking artwork by Jock.
In SKYWARD, gravity on Earth suddenly becomes a fraction of what it is now. Twenty years later, humanity has adapted to its new low-gravity reality. For one Willa Fowler—a woman born just after the fateful “G-day”—life after gravity it pretty awesome. Until she accidentally stumbles into a dangerous plan to bring gravity back. A plan that could get her killed…
SKYWARD is an adventure-filled exploration of our world turned upside down and a young woman’s journey to find her place in it.
