PORTLAND, Ore. 06/15/2023 — Debut creator, rising star, and 2019 Creators for Creators grant finalist Richard Blake weaves an intricately told science-fiction tale in the upcoming Hexagon Bridge. This five-issue miniseries will hit shelves this September from Image Comics and promises to charm fans of stories like Jonathan Hickman and Mike Huddleston’s Decorum and Darcy Van Poelgeest & Ian Bertram’s Little Bird.
“One of the great things about Image is that we’re often able to showcase stunning new work by exceptional new talent, and Richard Blake is a prime example of that,” said Eric Stephenson, Chief Creative Officer and Publisher at Image Comics. “Jonathan Hickman actually brought Richard to my attention a few years back, and it’s watching Richard develop this series has been a genuine thrill. I’m excited for everyone to experience this work for the first time—finally sharing this stunning new work with comics fans is one of the highlight of 2023 for me!”
In Hexagon Bridge, explorers Jacob and Elena Armlen find themselves trapped in a strange parallel dimension of elusive landscapes and shifting architecture inhabited by mischievous entities. Now it’s up to their clairvoyant daughter Adley and sentient robot Staden to rescue them!
“Creating this book was a journey that took me, and ultimately the characters, to some very strange worlds and unpredictable places,” said Blake. “I am very excited readers can finally share in the journey, and perhaps make some discoveries of their own.”
Hexagon Bridge #1 (Lunar Code 0723IM329) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, September 13.
Hexagon Bridge will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
