Press Release


From Arcana Studio—


Arcana Studios announced today that their new 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?”
This is creator Wayne Young’s debut graphic novel and he will be on hand at San Diego Comic Con booth # 2515 for signings. 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 MaxRoad 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.
Sean O’Reilly, Arcana CEO, explained, “Arcana has been focused on animation lately, but this story was simply too important not to put in print.”


About Children of the Fall:
…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?
