Amandla Stenberg's Comic, Niobe: She Is Life, Comes To Stores In November


Amandla Stenberg is best known for her role in The Hunger Games.

But we also reported she was working on a prose novel Niobe with author and publisher Sebastian A. Jones, a fellow we've been following for a few years, as part of his wider fantasy work.

But it seems that the planned novel is now a comic book, with Chicago artist Ashley A Woods.

Welcome to Niobe.

Here's the solicit for the first issue, Niobe: She Is Life, out in November.

Niobe Ayutami is an orphaned wild elf teenager and would-be savior of the vast and volatile fantasy world of Asunda. She is running from a past where the Devil himself would see her damned… toward an epic future that patiently waits for her to bind nations against the hordes of Hell!

And they see her as even more connected to the character.

Also from the publisher, in the same world, and also for November,


(W) Sebastian A. Jones (A/CA) Peter Bergting

Seven Days. Seven Souls. In the dark fantasy world of Asunda, a stranger returns to the town of Oasis, where he once ruled with malice and harshness. His wife and daughter were on the verge of turning him from wickedness… but they were murdered. And so was he. Now he has returned, hell-bent for revenge.
