“It’s one of those rare books that harkens back to a time when comics were FUN. I fell in love with NorthStars, and I know you will, too. This truly is a book for ALL ages,” said Action Lab President, Dave Dwonch.
Series Co-creator, Jim Shelley, describes the series in detail:
“NorthStars is an all-ages comic inspired by our love of Rankin Bass holiday specials, Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge comics and Asterix and Obelix. In the first issue, Welcome to Snowville, we introduce readers to an arctic arcanum of Fall Fairies, Winter Wyverns, Straw Lads and the villainous Krampus. It was important to us to create a world that combined the “anything goes” fun of classic all-ages comics with the ominous, preternatural stories of European folklore. It helps that artist Anna Liisa is originally from Finland and raised in England. She was able to use her cultural experiences to enhance the tone and visuals of the comic in ways the really invoke that Old World feeling. The result is a Holiday Grab Bag of wondrous realms, funny banter and heroic adventure!”
A digital first title, NorthStars will be released in a deluxe, oversized hardcover collection next year.
