PORTLAND, OR, 06/19/2018 — The first story arc of the critically acclaimed, gravity-defying SKYWARD—by writer Joe Henderson (showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer) and artist Lee Garbett (Lucifer, Loki: Agent of Asgard)—will be collected into trade paperback and available this September. SKYWARD, VOL. 1: MY LOW-G LIFE will include issues #1-5 of the series.
One day, gravity on Earth suddenly became a fraction of what it is now. Set 20 years later, SKYWARD introduces a humanity that has adapted to its new low-gravity reality. And to Willa Fowler, who was born just after G-day, it’s pretty awesome. You can fly through the air! I mean, sure, you can also die if you jump too high. So you just don’t jump too high. And maybe don’t get mixed up in your dad’s secret plan to bring gravity back, which could get you killed…
