Aspen’s Flagship Title Soulfire Returns This Summer



From Aspen Comics—

Aspen Comics is continuing their 15-Year Anniversary campaign on releasing classic “legacy” titles with the return of their best-selling Michael Turner’s Soulfire on July 18th. In 2018, the property is celebrating its fifteen-year anniversary since its critically popular debut in 2003 and subsequently became the #1 best-selling independent title the following year. Created by Michael Turner, the flagship action-adventure returns for its epic seventh volume with veteran Aspen writer, J.T. Krul (Fathom, Jirni) with art by rising star newcomer Chahine Ladjouze, colors by Wes Hartman (Portal Bound, Santeria: The Goddess Kiss) and lettering by Zen (Fathom, Charismagic).

It has been an honor to be part of Soulfire going all the way back to its first volume. This book holds a special place in my heart. In a way, it has always been like a second home for me, and I can’t wait for readers to see what we have in store for this anniversary volume. Incredible adventure, new dangers, and plenty of magic. This volume really sets the stage for the future of SOULFIRE in a big way, and I couldn’t be more excited.

The solicitation copy for Michael Turner’s Soulfire #1 reads:

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of its creation, Michael Turner’s incredible vision of magic and wonder returns for an all-new volume!

As the new age of magic continues in the shadows of this future landscape, Malikai and his friends try to enjoy a little downtime, but such plans never seem to last. Grace continues to serve as a protector for all things magic, more specifically the dragons, but she is growing tired of having to keep the true power of the world a secret. And, there is a new danger on the horizon, a new figure in the Soulfire universe who may be the greatest threat to the fragile balance between magic and technology yet! 

To support the release of this Aspen “Legacy” Anniversary volume, Aspen is bringing in top-tier cover artists including direct edition covers for each issue by Art Adams, Mirka Andolfo, Mike Choi, Michael Turner and more to be revealed.
