The Horse has been The Navigator’s arch-enemy for years, but when he sees The Navigator beginning to drift from his moral compass, he decides that’s not fun and begins to explore The Navigator’s hidden past. The series is by the team of Claudio Sanchex and Chondra Echert who have previously done critically acclaimed titles Kill Audio and Key of Z for BOOM! Studios.
