LOS ANGELES 08/18/2022 — Skybound today announced the launch of Kroma, a new comic book series being written, drawn, and colored by creator Lorenzo De Felici (Oblivion Song) that promises to take readers on a breathtaking adventure like none other, filled with strange creatures and unparalleled beauty. Kroma by Lorenzo De Felici #1 will arrive in comic book shops November 2, 2022.
“Prepare for a hellish descent in the visible spectrum,” said Lorenzo De Felici. “This story will put a new fear in hue.”
Imprisoned in a tower within the walls of the Pale City, Kroma lives her days out in darkness, believing she is the most evil creature alive. However, where her people see a monster, the mysterious orphan Zet sees a human. But if either of them are to survive the city’s strange rituals and customs, they will have to overcome the cruel fate of Kroma...even if it means risking certain death beyond the walls in the jaws of giant lizards and enormous birds of prey.
“Lorenzo is a legit comic book triple threat—writing, drawing, and coloring this jaw-dropped new series,” said Sean Mackiewicz, SVP/Publisher at Skybound. “The world already knew Lorenzo was a brilliant artist with OBLIVION SONG, and everything he did there—creating an action-packed world populated by aliens, creatures, and strange technology—is taken to the next level in KROMA. Also, he’s a fantastic cook. What can’t he do?!”
The world and titular character of Kroma recently made their first appearance to critical acclaim in the blockbuster Skybound X #25, available in comic shops and via digital providers now.
In addition to the main cover by De Felici, the Kroma variant cover program will include two covers by rotating artists, including a colored dressed cover and a 1:10 black & white full art incentive cover, as well as a 1:25 black & white full art incentive cover by De Felici. The Kroma #1 variant lineup sports two striking covers by acclaimed multihyphenate creator James Harren (Ultramega).
Kroma by Lorenzo De Felici #1 will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 2, 2022.
