EXCLUSIVE: Coda #1 Aims to Reinvent the Fantasy Comic

CBR has an exclusive 10-page preview of BOOM! Studios' upcoming Coda #1 by Simon Spurrier and Matías Bergara, scheduled for release on May 2.

"High fantasy’s dead. Sorry about that. Coda‘s what happens the morning after the funeral," Spurrier told CBR of the series. "Turns out what happens is this: life goes on. People continue to be in love. People continue to struggle and feel and fight. They simply have to adjust to a world with an absence where previously there was something cherished or relied upon."
