Craig had already started presenting an alternate version of the first issue, accessible on request for the curious.

Kaya, her older sister, is on her side equipped with a magic prosthesis which serves as her right arm. The heroine will try to shelter her little brother in an area cut off from the bestiality of the new world. There, Jin will then have to learn the secret of human collapse, and find a way to overthrow the evil empire that has taken power following the disasters.

Already presented briefly in the anthology Image! by Eric Stephenson, Kaya will make its debut on newsstands on October 5, 2022. The title has already received validation from many major designers in the industry, including the formidable Elsa Carter.
