Statix, the Titan Comics imprint, announced that they will publish an English language version of Thomas Day’s Wika this December.
Wika is a fairy princess, with her wings shaved off so she can remain safe in hiding and away from Oberon.
Oberon, the former lover of Duchess Titania, Wika’s mother, takes control of the capital. A decade later, his spies finally get wind of the surviving princess, but Wika’s fairy powers are also beginning to develop.
Wika has been published in French before, but Geek Native has an exclusive look at the following spreads with their English adaptation. The art is incredible; drawn by the talented Oliver Ledroit.
The style takes Lord of the Rings architecture, Cottingley fairies and blends in a liberal dose of steampunk. Lightning crackles from machines and fierce-looking fae hosts carry bastard swords into melee.
Day’s creation is a world filled with strange creatures, dwarves, goblins and elves and in the panels that Geek Native has seen each one is painstakingly brought to life by both the artist and the story.
You can pre-order Wika at Amazon.
