YALSA PICK GREEN MONK RETURNS IN AN ALL-NEW ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL FROM IMAGE COMICS
PORTLAND, OR, 05/23/2018 — Brandon Dayton once again brings mythical Russia to life in the highly anticipated continuation to YALSA's "Top Ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens" listed comic in GREEN MONK: BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS—an original graphic novel coming to Image Comics this September.
"So excited to be bringing the Green Monk to a wider audience through Image," said Dayton. "This is a book that has all the things I love to see in comics. It's a mix of quiet, contemplative moments with surreal, and sometimes explosive, action. I hope it can provide a real sense of journey and discovery."
Set in a mythical Russia, GREEN MONK: BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS follows a mysterious young boy raised by an order of peaceful monks. As he grows to manhood, bizarre dreams and the call of destiny lead him down a path to discover a powerful, mystical weapon and to face a terrible, violent choice.
Green Monk: Blood of the Martyrs will hit comic shops on September 26 and other retailers on October 2.
