Award-Winning cartoonist Nie Jun releases his much anticipated four-volume graphic novel series Seekers of the Aweto in March, and we have a sneak peek of the first volume, The Hunt Is On, after the jump.
In THE HUNT IS ON, Xinyue, his brother Qiliu, and their mother are seekers, hunting aweto―a rare, plantlike treasure. A single aweto has the power to cure the ill. Its rarest form may even grant eternal life. To seize their bounty, the seekers must rob the massive, majestic earth deities from which aweto sprout—sometimes leaving a trail of chaos behind them.
One day, after an outing on the legendary Silk Road, Xinyue discovers the offspring of a deity that creates aweto and becomes the little creature’s reluctant caretaker. Now he must keep it safe and keep it a secret. But warriors from the creature’s village are close behind, and more fearsome thieves wait ahead….
Seekers of the Aweto: The Hunt Is On arrives on March 2, 2021.
