Espionage + Steampunk = Archaia’s Lantern City!

Lantern City #1 - Benjamin Carré

Numbering Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5) among its creators, Lantern City is a new, ongoing series from Archaia and Macrocosm – a steampunk/espionage series that looks at what one might do to save loved ones.

Lantern City is about the travails of Sander Jorve, a lower class worker, who is persuaded by his brother-in-law Kendal to infiltrate the ranks of The Guard – setting him on a path that threaten the status quo of the class system and his own beliefs.

Lantern City #1 will be in comics shops on May 13th. Follow the jump for details.

More details – and alternate covers – follow the jump. Fiction Squad will be in comics shops on October 1st.
