[ENGLISH] Image Comics tells us: Berkeley, CA — 14 July 2011 — Hoang Nguyen, Khari Evans and Paul Gardner, the creative team behind CARBON GREY present CARBON GREY ORIGINS, a two-issue anthology of short stories set in the larger world of the epic CARBON GREY series from Image Comics. In the six tales of legends and secret histories that make up the first issue, a boy becomes a god, two fictional characters come to life, a refugee becomes a queen, and two sisters become killers.
Created in collaboration with both new and well-established artists and writers, these tales provide insight into the history and motivations of the series’ key characters, while also introducing a number of new characters destined to play an important role in the forthcoming second arc of CARBON GREY. Series regulars Khari Evans, Hoang Nguyen and Kinsun Loh are joined by artists such as Pop Mhan (SpyBoy, Flash).
« In the series to date we’ve been able to show just a small part of the world of CARBON GREY, » said creator and artist Nguyen. « I’m so happy that Image has given us the opportunity to explore it more fully. We hope that these two standalone issues will give readers of the first arc a new perspective on the story of CARBON GREY, and at the same time provide new readers with an ideal introduction to the series. »
CARBON GREY ORIGINS #1, a 32-page full color comic, will go on sale October 26, 2011 for $3.99 and will be available for order in the October edition of Previews.
