A new world of flight prepares to take the Aspen Universe by storm!
In the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, Spain, a covert scientist discovers that possessing valuable data that could change the world comes with a dangerous price. However, it may be far too late for him to escape before the powers that be come to collect! Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a loving suburban family makes a similar discovery, that the world is indeed much smaller than it seems, and no one is safe!
Awaken Skies #0 features two direct edition covers by series artist Lorenzana and Aspen newcomer Mauricio Campetella (Jirni). Creator Mastromauro discusses the debut of his new series:
It’s been a long time coming, but I’m so happy to finally see Awaken Skies being released. It’s a story I’ve wanted to tell for a while, and I really think it’s going to be an unexpected treat for fans and readers. Marco’s art skills and Justice’s colors are taking this book to the next level and I really hope everyone enjoys this new series when the book debuts.
