Bestselling creators Brenden Fletcher (Batgirl of Burnside, Gotham Academy) and Karl Kerschl (Gotham Academy, The Abominable Charles Christopher) re-team for ISOLA—an epic fantasy adventure series with the scope of Game of Thrones and the spirit of Princess Mononoke.

"Karl and I have been working toward creating Isola for more than 30 years. No joke! We met in elementary school, discovered and obsessed over comics together and pushed each other to become the kind of storytellers we admired," said Fletcher. "From the playground to our parents' basements to the comic studio in Montreal, Isola has been decades in the making. We can't wait to introduce you to this beautiful world."

ISOLA is set in a mystical land where the queen's brother enacts a treacherous plot to transform her into a tiger. The captain of the guard, a woman of great skill, brings swift and lethal vengeance, unaware the wicked prince alone has the power to reverse the spell. The two women—one on two legs, one on four—must undertake a perilous journey halfway across the globe to the fabled island of ISOLA, gateway to the underworld, where they hope to find the spirit of the queen's late brother and return her to human form.

Kerschl added: "working concurrently on superhero comics and my webcomic, The Abominable Charles Christopher, I've always felt like I was creating for two very different audiences. Isola is a marriage of the comic series Brenden and I grew up reading and the animal stories I've been drawing, and I'm excited to finally share it with everyone. "

ISOLA is set to launch in Spring 2017.
