Fantasy And Reality Blur In Devin Grayson's 'Rewild'
Apr 09, 2021
Acclaimed writer Devin Grayson (Omni, Batman: Gotham Knights) is joined by rising star artist Yana Adamovic (D Day) in her American comics debut, along with letterer Sal Cipriano to put a powerful, modern twist on an ageless fantasy tale in Rewild, the latest graphic novel from Karen Berger’s award-winning imprint, Berger Books.
The lines between fantasy and reality are blurred in this dark, environmentally-themed magical realist tale. Poe is a mysterious young homeless woman and self-proclaimed fairy changeling. Demond is an enterprising engineer with a troubled past. When Poe demands that a park be built to appease a dangerous new mutation of mythical creatures, ravaged by climate change and furious with the human race, Demond must question not only his own sanity, but the rationality of our entire species as he struggles to save his city-- and maybe even the world.
“Beautifully written and illustrated, Devin and Yana have crafted captivating characters in a timely tale where reality, myth and magic overlap,” said Karen Berger. “This lyrical and powerful story deals with the fragility of the mind and our planet in unforgettable ways.”
Devin Grayson is a seasoned comic writer, working for the past twenty years on world-renowned superhero icons from Batman to the X-Men to Marvel’s current Widowmakers as well as writing original graphic novels, including USER (DC) and Matador (Image).
Yana Adamovic is an artist from Belgrade, Serbia. Recently knighted by the French Minister of Culture, she has worked as a colorist and artist for the French comic publisher Delcourt Editions since 2014 and more recently published a two-book story about the Ottoman Empire as part of a popular alternate history series in France, Jour J (D Day).
Rewild arrives in comic shops on October 27, 2021 and bookstores November 9, 2021 for $19.99 and is available for pre-order now through your local comic shop.
