A Guest Post by Mark Siegel
Five Worlds is a graphic novel series in five volumes, created by five people! It's also one of the most unusual storytelling adventures I've every embarked on.
At first my brother Alexis and I thought we were signing up artistic guns-for-hire, straight out of art school (MICA in Baltimore, in this case.) As we got to work with Matt, Xanthe, and Boya, however, it became clear we had found inspired creative partners. This is no assembly-line comic book! In fact, if you look at our penciled pages, you can see three different styles interweaving. Each of us brings a vision, a flavor, and a distinct inspiration to every aspect of the work. And best of all, we're all swept up in these worlds, and in the unfolding story of our characters Oona, An Tzu, and Jax Amboy.
Each book is 250 pages, so there's a lot of story to unpack here, which the five of us invite you to discover.
Look for 5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior on May 2, 2017.
