Image Comics launches a new science fiction series in December, written by Ram V with art by Dev Pramanik.
The Midnight Event forever changed the world.
Now, centuries later, Jack Kryznan arrives on the outskirts of Paradiso City, haunted by fragments of childhood memories and in possession of a mysterious device—one with the power to change the destiny of this living breathing metropolis: the people who dwell within, and the guardians who strive for and against it.
“I’ve always been fascinated by cities,” said Ram in a press release from the publisher. “They are a reflection of the people within them, and yet they have influence over their citizens. We build them to outlive us, but they are human places, tied in with our understanding of beauty and mortality. Architect and urban designer Rajiv Bhakat and I first conceived the idea of a city trying to understand its place in the world by understanding those who live within it. And, much like a real city, the story has grown and evolved into this crazy, dangerous, romantic, and magical place called PARADISO.”
Paradiso #1 is set to arrive in stores on December 6, 2017.
