PORTLAND, Ore. 05/24/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the critically-acclaimed First look at Chip Zdarsky, Kris Anka, and Matt Wilson's 'White Trees'Daredevil writer Chip Zdarsky and beloved Runaways artists Kris Anka and Matt Wilson will team up for a tautly-woven, eye-popping new fantasy miniseries, The White Trees. The series will be comprised of two oversized issues–which will tell a complete story–with the The White Trees #1 hitting shelves this August.

“I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Kris and Matt again!” bellowed Zdarsky. “Are they thrilled to be working with me again? It really doesn’t matter as I tricked them into signing a contract by using the words ‘hot fantasy.’ Legally, they have to illustrate this tale of fraught relationships forged in war and the complexities of fatherhood.

“Or suffer the consequences.”

The White Trees is set in the fantastical world of Blacksand, where peace was hard-won, and three unbending warriors carry the scars to prove it. Now, almost twenty years later, their children are missing and war is on the horizon. Can they put aside their memories of the war–and each other–for one last adventure?

Anka added: “This book has everything: action, suspense, romance, Daddies.”

The White Trees #1 (Diamond Code JUN190031) will hit comic shops on Wednesday, August 14. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, July 22.
