Eisner Award winning writer Saladin Ahmed (Miles Morales, TerrorWar), superstar artist Megan Levens (Star Trek, Madame Frankenstein), and colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick team for the forthcoming Starsigns. This exciting new series about astrology, superpowers, and diverse found family—in the tradition of X-Men and Heroes—is set to launch in May from Image Comics.
“Since ancient times, the western zodiac’s strange iconography has been a rich wellspring for tale-telling. Starsigns draws from that ancient wellspring to tell a very modern story of superhuman ‘found family.’ Starsigns is a ‘real world’ superhero story that refuses to succumb to cynicism. An insistence that no matter how bleak things are, the universe still holds love and solidarity, kindness and hope,” said Ahmed. “Megan’s striking designs and bright, clean lines have leveled up the story at every turn, and I can’t wait for readers to experience this new world we’ve built.”
In Starsigns, the constellations of the zodiac fall to earth, granting twelve ordinary people from very different walks of life the superhuman powers of the Starsigns. But each of them is about to learn that power always comes with a price…
Levens added: “Working on Starsigns has been an artist’s dream, with its balance of classic superpowered action and deeply relatable human heart. I’ve fallen in love with this wonderful cast of unlikely heroes and villains that Saladin, Kelly, and I have built together, and I can’t wait for readers to meet them.”
Starsigns #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 3. Starsigns #1 will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
