Arcana Studios latest title Children of the Fall (ISBN 978-1-77135-244-4) will premiere at San Diego Comic Con 2017. This full color 80 page original graphic novel is a dystopian urban style drama that asks the question, “when your world is a memory, does what you do still matter?” Wayne Young will be on hand to sign copies at the Arcana booth #2515 Thursday through Sunday from 10am to 11 am.
Creator David Mack commented, “I was happy to contribute artwork for Children of The Fall. Wayne’s story is vivid and heartfelt — qualities at the heart of good comics.”
The seeds for his first graphic novel, “Children of the Fall,” were sown while working in Taiwan on the massive KRTC Public Art Project (which showcased the talents of Ron Wood, Lutz Haufschild and Narcissus Quagliata). Inspired by a foreign landscape that shifts radically between developed and near apocalyptic, “Children of the Fall” reflects an aesthetic that bridges East and West, and follows in the narrative tradition of Mad Max, Road to Perdition and Once Upon a Time in the West. Digger Mesch, founder of Art Asylum and creator of The Other Dead, Agent 88 and Minimates toys, served as a creative consultant on the title, which also features gallery art from Dave Dorman (Star Wars), Liam Sharp (Wonder Woman) and David Mack (Kabuki.) Children of the Fall will be featured in the June 2017 edition of Previews and will be on sale in comic stores in September. The book will also be available digitally via comiXology.
About Children of the Fall:
OVERPOPULATION AND FOSSIL FUEL EXHAUSTION HAVE LED TO HUMANITY’S DEMISE.
…leaving the world a violent and chaotic shell of its former self. Amidst the turmoil, Lin Shaw, the eldest daughter of a warlord, has retreated with her younger sister, Kay, to a remote island in Southeast Asia. There, they encounter the enigmatic Gunfighter and, together, the trio must face a treacherous landscape and a dangerous adversary in the hopes of securing safe passage to Valhalla — mankind’s last sanctuary. Wayne Young has created a vivid world of a possible future that is as unsettling as it is familiar. When your world is a memory, does what you do still matter?
What other are saying about the book:
“It is not written as emotionally packed but it delivers a lot of emotions. 4 out of 5 stars.” -JazmaOnline.com
“What I particularly like about the art in Children of the Fall, is that it is not hindered by frame. Sometimes there is no frame, and in some cases, the characters are trying to climb out of the frame, almost like they are breaking out of the book. The frame essentially, conforms to the characters instead of the characters being held within. The thick outlines complement the starkness of the reality, and the sporadic use of bright color seems to symbolize the splashes of hope in an otherwise bleak world.” -Geeks of Doom
