The Tiger’s Tongue | Incoming
Today we have an early look at The Tiger’s Tongue, a new YA comic series launching in July from Mad Cave Studios. The series is written by Olivia Stephens (Artie and the Wolf Moon, Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky) with art by Diansakhu Banton-Perry (Monster Fun), colors by Bex Glendining, and letters by Joamette Gil. But what’s it about? Glad you asked:
Under the militant rule of The Tiger’s People, empowered by their animal familiars, the Claw is on the brink of war. At the precipice of adulthood, twin princesses Kelindi and Aridani hold the future of the Claw in their hands. Kelindi would sue for peace with The River’s People, those who were subjugated “to bring order,” while Aridani has never aspired to rule. But an ancient prophecy is revealed that’ll force fate’s hand for the sisters…
The first issue of the comic will be available on July 6 in comic shops, and the collected edition is scheduled for December release, but we have a first look at some unlettered interior art for you today, so you can get a feel for what the comic will be like. Enjoy!
