If you haven’t been keeping up with comics legend Karen Berger’s new Dark Horse imprint, now would be a really good time to start, as we’ve got the exclusive reveal of Berger Books’ latest compelling offering: She Could Fly.
From writer Christopher Cantwell, co-creator/showrunner of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, and artist Martin Morazzo (Nighthawk, Elektra), She Could Fly tells the tale of Luna Brewster, a “disturbed” 15-year-old girl, according to an official announcement. Along with seemingly everyone else, Luna witnesses the demise of a mysterious flying woman when she suddenly explodes while soaring 2,000 feet in the air at 120 mph.
With the flying woman's fiery death, everyone’s got questions, theories, or admonishments. “No one knows who she was, how she flew, or why. Some think it was a government program. Some think it was foreign surveillance. Some think it was all fake. Some are even convinced that it was a religious, transcendent experience happening on earth,” the story teases.
But no one’s got more questions than Luna, who becomes obsessed with learning the truth about the flying woman, though that truth becomes ever more evasive in the face of abundant conjecture and conspiracy theories. But will the truth help Luna find her own truth, and “liberation from her troubled mind”?
We shall see when the first 32-page issue, She Could Fly #1, goes on sale July 11 (available for pre-order now). For now though, check out our exclusive cover reveal and interior art below, then let us know in the comments if you’re soaring from the experience.
Fair warning though: If you're a fan of kittens, particularly ones with their whole head intact, then you may want to avert your eyes for one particular frame.
