The principle of stories articulated around a small family of survivors, in a world destroyed by a mysterious apocalypse, is on the way to becoming a genre of artistic movement in its own right. After We Live, Jonna, Snow Angels, or even Nocterra in a way, another project comes to be part of the continuity of the heirs of Sweet Tooth. After two years of work, corrections and preparation, Wes Craig, pencil genius behind the masterpiece Deadly Class, is finally preparing to launch Kaya at Image Comics. The first issue has been announced for this fall.
Kaya follows the adventure of a big sister and her little brother in a desert world, after the destruction of their village. The boy, Jin, considered a prince, is not able to cope alone in this environment populated by monsters, robots, armed factions and inexplicable creatures. 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.
