Courtesy of Vault Comics, AIPT can exclusively reveal never before seen preview pages for the upcoming series Godfell. Written by Christopher Sebela with art by Ben Hennessy, a new fantasy series set to debut in comic book shops February 22nd. It’s a book Sebela says is bigger than anything he’s done before.
“It still has all the elements I love like our complicated and slightly questionable characters, backdrops full of unspoken history and mysteries galore but stuffed inside a world where berzerkers ride tapeworms through the excavated leg of a dead god and monsters lurk in the hollows of village-sized internal organs,” Sebela said in a statement. “Godfell has opened a door I thought would forever remain rusted and half-shut for me and finally given me a new genre to love as whole-heartedly as all my reliable favorites.”
Hennessy added, “Our two “heroes” Zanzi and Neth have been a joy to work on. I’ve been taking inspiration from Xena, Conan and Cassandra from AC: Odyssey for Zanzi. Zanzi is as awesome as any action hero you’ll ever see, she seems to be able to solve just about any and every problem with her axe. She’s a very creative problem solver. The other part of the duo is Neth who’s far more inclined to take a stealthy solution to a problem in comparison to Zanzi’s usual loud and proud preference. So they obviously, both get on like a house on fire.”
Check out the preview below.
GOD IS DEAD. WHO’S NEXT?
One sunny day in the land of Kerethim, God falls dead from the sky. The impact sends out shockwaves that draw in royal families at war, shadowy creatures of the dark, and armies of the dispossessed, all coming to lay claim to parts of God’s body. Into this power struggle wanders Zanzi Vuiline, a soldier and berserker trying to get home from a years-long war. Forced to fight her way through the strange landscapes in and on God’s corpse, from the soles of its feet through the top of its head, Zanzi will acquire a mysterious traveling companion on her own pilgrimage.
