The year 2012 will begin a new era for Joshua Luna of the Luna Brothers (Ultra, Girls, The Sword). Come January, he will be making his solo debut with a new 6-issue series at Image Comics entitled Whispers, a comic book which will follow in the same tradition of the previous series Luna and his brother have created in the past: original stories with supernatural elements, grounded with compelling human drama.
The dark, supernatural thriller will not only showcase the creator’s talents as both writer and artist for the first time, but will also raise questions of free will and explore the obsessions, addictions and urges we all have… and may not fully have control of!
“A lot of people who are familiar with my writing may not know this, but I started drawing long before I attempted to write,” said Luna. “I’ve been dying to tackle the art on a comic book series for a long time, but I’ve been waiting for the right time and the right story.”
Whispers is the suspenseful story of a mentally troubled man who is suddenly empowered with the ability to leave behind his physical body and exist in a ghost-like form, manipulating people in strange and disturbing ways. With this incredible power, will he control his demons… or discover even more?
Whispers #1, a 32-page full-color sci-fi comic $2.99, will be on sale in stores January 26, and is available for order in the upcoming January issue of Previews.
