Courtesy of Source Point Press, AIPT can exclusively reveal a preview of Etheres, a new one-shot from writer Anas Abdulhak, artist Dennis Menheere and letterer DC Hopkins. It tells the poetic tale of a woman’s journey through an unknown and perilous realm of the afterlife.
“This story is deeply personal for me as death has unfortunately been something I’m all too familiar with,” Abdulhak said. “Like many Syrians, I’ve had to deal with the loss of people we love. We’ve had to learn how to reckon with the looming threat of death, which inevitably brings up a lot of questions about the afterlife… What lies after, where we belong. Whether we’ve been good enough or if we’ve done enough. Those are themes I really wanted to touch upon and explore in Etheres.”
Check out the preview below.
Following her passing, Valerie finds herself navigating a mysterious world known as Etheres– a realm where souls go when they don’t belong anywhere else. Valerie is accompanied by The Creature, a foreboding and taunting figure who guides her through this unknown realm. Valerie’s journey unfolds through poetic narration as she experiences her surroundings, recalling her past life, her trauma, and why she believes she deserves to be there.
