Image Comics Announces "Mirror: The Mountain" Trade Paperback
MIRROR: A STAGGERING REFLECTION ON PERSONHOOD
An ethereal tale of sentience, agency, and acceptance
Emma Ríos (PRETTY DEADLY, I.D.) and Hwei Lim (Lalage, Hero) team up for MIRROR: THE MOUNTAIN, collecting the first five issues of the otherworldly fantasy into trade paperback this September.
The mage-scientists of The Synchronia have terraformed a portion of an asteroid, a tiny fragment of a once lush world. An unexpected side effect arises in the spontaneous sentience of the animals sent to test the environmental conditions. This is the story of what happens next. MIRROR: THE MOUNTAIN includes 180 pages of story, world-building mini-comics, and extras.
MIRROR: THE MOUNTAIN TP (ISBN: 9781632158345) hits comic book stores Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 and bookstores Tuesday, September 20th, 2016, and will be available for $14.99. It can be ordered by retailers with Diamond code: MAY160680. It can be preordered now via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.
PRAISE FOR MIRROR:
“From cover to cover, it has the luminosity of stained glass.” —Pop Optiq
“The kind of book that breathes imagination into the world. It’s beautiful and heart-wrenching, emotional and visually stunning.” —Comicosity
“Emma Ríos once again proves herself to be just as fantastic a writer as she is an artist, and has found the perfect partner in Hwei Lim. Their styles, in both art and writing, perfectly compliment one another to make a gorgeous and fascinating fantasy comic that feels like nothing you’ve ever read before.” —Multiversity
