Image Comics announce “Isola Vol. 1” collection coming this October

Isola is one of the best new comics of the year.  The engrossing fantasy series from Brenden Fletcher, Karl Kerschl, MSassyK, and Aditya Bidikar is a terrific example of an original property utilizing every aspect of the medium to tell a gripping story.  The writing, the absolutely gorgeous visuals, and the imaginative lettering work together to create an entirely new world that feels both vast and intimate, equal parts intriguing and terrifying.  We’ve discussed it at length, both on the podcast and here at the site, so safe to say that we’re huge fans.

If you haven’t had a chance to dive into the series yet, Image Comics have just announced that the first five issues will be collected in graphic novel form this October.   Check out the details below, and join us in the world of Isola.
