Image Comics sent us word that Kurt Busiek and Benjamin Dewey’s Autumnlands kicks off a new story arc this November.
Previously in THE AUTUMNLANDS, a secret enclave of wizards reached into their forgotten past to bring back a legendary hero to save their dying lands. But instead of the savior they’d hoped for, they got a completely unexpected kind of hero.
In THE AUTUMNLANDS #7, our lost and wounded heroes seek safety, but instead find something…bizarre.
“Issue seven ends with one of the most ambitious spreads I’ve ever done and I have to build a model of it so I can make sense of it for any subsequent appearances!” said Benjamin Dewey in a prepared statement. “The [plot] details [Kurt] has revealed to me will be challenging, exciting and fun to manifest. I really hope that we are able to welcome some new readers to the series by expanding the scope and introducing unexpected characters. Current readers ought to enjoy seeing the world they’ve come to know unfold more and in surprising ways.” He continued, “I’m always excited to see what Jordie and JG will do overtop the raw inks to improve what Kurt and I establish. We’ve switched up some formatting elements and moved outside the cityscape so it should be a whole new playground for them to practice their wizardry.”
The first volume of Autumnlands will be reviewed on the October 6th installment of the Major Spoilers Podcast (episode 645), so if you are looking to find out what this series is about before picking up issue #7, then check us out.
