BOOM! Studios has released another sneak peek of A Spark Within the Forge: An Ember in the Ashes, the upcoming graphic novel from creator Sabaa Tahir, writer Nicole Andelfinger, and artist Sonia Liao.
Before they were torn asunder, Laia lived happily and quietly with her Nan, Pop, and brother Darin within the Scholar district of Martial-ruled Serra. Although Laia is afraid to venture outside her home due to the heavy Martial presence, Darin loves to explore all parts of their home city… even those that are forbidden.
As a dangerous illness spreads throughout Serra, Laia must confront her deepest fears in order to save a community besieged by disease. Meanwhile, Darin has a chance encounter with famed swordsmith Spiro Teluman that leads him down a precarious path away from his family — but towards hope for his people.
A Spark Within the Forge: An Ember in the Ashes is scheduled to arrive on February 9, 2022.
