Sacred Band is an LGBTQ+ superhero series from Joseph Carriker. It was initially published by Lethe Press and was named one of the best indie debuts by Kirkus Review.
Nisaba has now bought the rights and will re-release the book with a new cover and publish the sequel, Twilight Venture, in 2021.
In Sacred Band, a group of superpowered individuals recognise that queer and other marginalised people are going missing. No one else seems to care, and so they band together to investigate the mystery.
In Twilight Venture, fans and the government now know all about this group of supers, and they’re being watched very closely. Why hasn’t a superhero band formed for so long? What’s kept the world a post-superhero one? The Sacred Band are about to find out.
Nisaba Press is the fiction imprint of veteran RPG publisher Green Ronin. Joseph Carriker has plenty of experience with Green Ronin already having worked on A Song of Ice and Fire RPG: NIghts Watch, Blue Rose: Companion, Mutants & Masterminds: Book of Magic and the Blue Rose novel Shadowtide to name a few.
Geek Native’s predecessor, GameWyrd, interviewed Joseph Carriker over a decade ago, and the interview was republished in 2010 when the site rebranded.
