AFAR (Leila Del Duca / Kit Seaton)

Tandis qu’elle illustre le prochain arc de Shutter, Leila Del Duca fait le grand saut en tant que scénariste avec l’album Afar sur lequel elle collabore avec le dessinateur Kit Seaton.

Dans Afar, Boetema se découvre la capacité de voyager à travers les Mondes en se projetant astralement dans le corps d’inconnus et finit par blesser quelqu’un. De son coté, son frère, qui a un gout prononcé pour les ennuis, est poursuivi par des cyborgs lorsqu’une de ses combines échoue. C’est ainsi que les deux jumeaux se retrouvent forcés de travailler ensembles pour résoudre leurs problèmes.

L’album sort cet automne.

Critically-acclaimed, Russ Manning nominated SHUTTER artist Leila Del Duca teams up as co-creator and writer alongside artist, colorist, and letterer Kit Seaton (THE BLACK BULL OF NORROWAY, EVE OF ALL SAINTS) for an original graphic novel, AFAR.

In AFAR, Boetema suddenly develops the ability to astrally project to other worlds, unintentionally possessing the bodies of people light years away. Inotu, her inquisitive brother with a pension for trouble, finds himself on the run after he’s caught eavesdropping on an illegal business deal between small town business tycoons and their cyborg bodyguard. When Boetema accidentally gets someone hurt while in another girl’s body, the siblings are forced to work together to solve the problems they’ve created on their planet and others.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Kit Seaton who beautifully renders the world we’ve created and packs each page full of emotion and wonder,” said Del Duca. “Kit has been amazing to work with, from designing aliens, cultures, old busted tech, and all the weird environments, to drawing each character rich with emotion and personality.”
