Lupina is a two-volume captivating saga about a young girl on a journey of revenge with her wolf companion. In the coastal town of Kote, recently brought under the yoke of the Addalian Empire, four-year-old Lupa spends her days getting bullied by her older sister and hiding behind her mother’s skirts. But when tragedy strikes, Lupa finds herself alone in a new world… alone until she’s found by the she-wolf, Coras, and sets off on a journey of discovery… and revenge. The first volume of the two-piece collection will be available in bookstores and online retailers on September 14, 2021. Both volumes contain three phases, continuing the adventure of Lupa and Coras.
From writer James F. Wright, artist Li Buszka, colorist Bex Glendining, and letterer Ariana Maher, Lupina will be on sale September 14, 2021. You can pre-order and purchase it through our ComiXology link.
