Scout Comics is venturing into the world of magmapunk with the upcoming release of Tales of Vulcania by Marco Daeron Ventura and Matteo Leoni.
Vulcania is a magmapunk world. The steam and energy from volcanoes dominates the everyday life of the great Islenations who spend their days relentlessly fighting each other. The main character of this story, Sydna, is one of the victims of one of these wars. Her homeland was destroyed when she was still a child. Since then, she has become a merciless fencer. She has but one goal: get revenge on those who took away her childhood and slaughtered her people. Always on the run from bounty hunters seeking her head, Sydna can’t trust anyone as she makes her way through thrilling sword duels, deadly gunfights, daring chases on flying ships and other more…unexpected developments. In a world where fire is a second skin, will her icy eyes be all that survives in the end?
“After a ten-year career in Italy, Tales of Vulcania will be my first work published in the United States,” said series writer Marco Daeron Ventura in a press release from Scout Comics. “It’s a story I’ve been working on for years and of which I’m very proud of. Scout Comics believed in me and made me feel part of a big family, I couldn’t have asked for anything better for my debut in the American market.”
Tales of Vulcania arrives in April 2023.
