Skyward, Vol.1: My Low-G Life Arrives This September


Skyward, Vol.1: My Low-G Life Arrives This September
SKYWARD, VOL. 1: MY LOW-G LIFE TRADE PAPERBACK WILL LAND IN STORES THIS SEPTEMBER

PORTLAND, OR, 06/19/2018 — The first story arc of the critically acclaimed, gravity-defying SKYWARD—by writer Joe Henderson (showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer) and artist Lee Garbett (Lucifer, Loki: Agent of Asgard)—will be collected into trade paperback and available this September. SKYWARD, VOL. 1: MY LOW-G LIFE will include issues #1-5 of the series.

One day, gravity on Earth suddenly became a fraction of what it is now. Set 20 years later, SKYWARD introduces a humanity that has adapted to its new low-gravity reality. And to Willa Fowler, who was born just after G-day, it’s pretty awesome. You can fly through the air! I mean, sure, you can also die if you jump too high. So you just don’t jump too high. And maybe don’t get mixed up in your dad’s secret plan to bring gravity back, which could get you killed…

SKYWARD, VOL. 1 trade paperback (ISBN: 978-1534308336, Diamond Code JAN188542) will hit stores on Wednesday, September 19th and bookstores on Tuesday, September 25th. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, August 6th. It can be ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

vibrant, relatable heroine. The sky's the limit with this one." —Jay Faerber

LUCIFER’S HENDERSON AND GARBETT TEAM UP FOR GRAVITY-DEFYING NEW SERIES IN SKYWARD

Skyward is a great new series with a great hook and jaw-dropping artwork by Lee Garbett. Highly recommended!" —Jeff Lemire

PORTLAND, OR, 01/23/2018 — Writer Joe Henderson (showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer) and artist Lee Garbett (Lucifer, Loki: Agent of Asgard) team up for an all-new gravity-defying series in SKYWARD. The new series is set to launch this April.

Skyward is my all of my favorite things mashed together,” said Henderson. “It’s a coming-of-age story filled with action and humor, devastation and hope. It explores a world turned upside down, where anyone can leap tall buildings with a single bound… but if you jump too high, you die. And getting to see Lee Garbett bring it to glorious life is a dream come true.”

In SKYWARD, gravity on Earth suddenly becomes a fraction of what it is now. Twenty years later, humanity has adapted to its new, low-gravity reality. For one Willa Fowler—a woman born just after the fateful “G-day”—life after gravity it pretty awesome. Until she accidentally stumbles into a dangerous plan to bring gravity back. A plan that could get her killed…

Garbett added: "When I first read the pitch for Skyward it felt like fate had had a hand in putting it my way. Like it had been written for me and designed to push all my buttons. Joe Henderson's script—as well as that killer high-concept—was so rich, his characters so warm and full of life, that I was hooked and holding on to this baby with both hands like it was chained to the ground on G-Day. I hope the readers will have the same experience.”

SKYWARD is an adventure-filled exploration of our world turned upside down and a young woman’s journey to find her place in it.

SKYWARD #1 (Diamond Code FEB180510) and will be available on Wednesday, April 18th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, March 26th.
