MIRROR: a staggering reflection of personhood
July 26, 2016
An ethereal tale of sentience, agency, and acceptance
Emma Ríos (PRETTY DEADLY, I.D.) and Hwei Lim (Lalage, Hero) team up for MIRROR: THE MOUNTAIN, collecting the first five issues of the otherworldly fantasy into trade paperback this September.
