SKYBOUND DEBUTS NEW PREVIEW OF ROBERT KIRKMAN & LORENZO DE FELICI’S VOID RIVALS #1

LOS ANGELES 05/16/2023 — Today Skybound unveiled a brand-new look and the impressive slate of variant covers for Void Rivals #1, the debut issue of the hotly anticipated new comic book series from the iconic Oblivion Song team of Robert Kirkman (Invincible, The Walking Dead) and Lorenzo De Felici (Kroma), along with colorist Matheus Lopes (Step by Bloody Step) and letterer Rus Wooton (Fire Power).

The upcoming series will introduce an all-new shared universe with a surprise that readers will have to wait to uncover until the debut issue arrives in comic book shops on June 14, 2023.

“VOID RIVALS takes every element fans expect from Skybound comics—incredible worlds, dynamic characters, and jaw-dropping twists—and kicks off our first shared universe,” says Sean Mackiewicz, SVP, Publisher. “This comic is the start of something we’ll be talking about for years to come.”

In Void Rivals, war rages around the Sacred Ring, where the last remnants of two worlds have collapsed around a black hole in a never-ending war. However, when pilot Darak and his rival Solila both crash on a desolate planet, these two enemies must find a way to escape together. But are they alone on this strange planet? And what dark forces await that threaten the entire universe?

Void Rivals #1 (Diamond Codes listed below | $3.99) will feature a main cover by De Felici, along with an impressive lineup of variant covers by some of the top artists in the industry today that will reveal more about these new characters and their worlds.

The issue will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, June 14.
