Exclusive: Yahgz Vol. 2: The Gwash War | News and Preview
Today we have the exclusive reveal of Yahgz, Vol. 2: The Gwash War, the second volume in Art Baltazar’s middle-grade action/adventure/comedy tale. It was just a year ago that we brought you the exclusive announcement of the first volume of Yahgz, and now Baltazar, co-creator of Tiny Titans and one of the funniest people in comics, is back with more adventures from the land of Craynobi. Here’s the publisher’s description:
In this second volume of the YAHGZ Series, the evil GWASH MONSTERS are invading Cray City! Their evil leader, The GWASHIE is set upon revenge! And CRAYBI CRAYNOBI may be the only one who can stop her.
Continuing the story events from where YAHGZ: The Craynobi Tales left off; we find our Cray heroes thrown into the GWASH WAR. This action-packed adventure of good versus evil tells us more about the Cray characters and reveals much more of the legendary Cray Lore and the mysteries that surround the Land of YAHGZ! What is The Cray Stick of Joy, and what magical mysteries does it possess– and will the Cray Cousins find it in time to save CRAY CITY?
The Gwash War is rated for ages 7-12, and Papercutz will publish it on August 6, 2024, but we have an advance peek for you right now. Enjoy!
