Bestselling writer Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, Little Mermaid) and fan-favorite artist Ig Guara (Batman: Arkham Knight, Blue Beetle, The Ravagers) team up for their first creator-owned series with Image Comics in ROSE—an all-new fantasy series set to launch this April.
ROSE is a classic fantasy tale about a girl trying to restore balance to a broken world. Rose must connect with her Khat—Thorne—to become the Guardian the world needs. But things aren’t easy for Rose and Thorne, as the powerful sorcerous Drucilla has many powerful and demonic allies—all of them focused on stopping one scared little girl who’s desperately trying to stay alive and do what’s right.
“Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved fantasy fiction,” said Finch. “Rose, for me, more than anything is a love letter to that genre. Having the opportunity to publish Rose, a book that means so much to me, through Image, a company that has established itself as the premier publisher of creator-driven comics, only makes this experience that much more special."
The new series will also feature a Cover B by revered artist David Finch.
ROSE #1 Cover A by Guara (Diamond Code FEB170548) and Cover B by David Finch (Diamond Code FEB170549) will hit stores on Wednesday, April 12th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, March 20th.
