Get ready to return to Mount Olympos. Dark Horse Comics and Ubisoft are teaming for a new young readers graphic novel, Immortals Fenyx Rising: From Great Beginnings. The graphic novel, written by Ben Kahn and illustrated by Georgeo Brooks, expands on the world of the Immortals Fenyx Rising video game, and follows the demigod Fenyx as she navigates her new place within the complicated world of Greek mythology.
Here’s how Dark Horse describes Immortals Fenyx Rising: From Great Beginnings:
Fenyx enjoys her new life on Mount Olympos, but when her hometown suddenly gets hit by strange earthquakes, she has to investigate. Back at home, she reunites with her human father —to his shock, he learns that gods are real. Fenyx’s mom, who had kept her godhood under the radar, cautions her that such a life has its drawbacks and things get messy when Zeus makes an appearance. As the earthquakes continue to rupture the earth, dangerous creatures emerge, past foes return, old flames reignite, and history is once again in the making! It’s time for the gods to team up to fight as a family!
Immortals Fenyx Rising: From Great Beginnings is the first graphic novel from Dark Horse featuring the characters and world of the recently-released game. Last month the publisher released an art book for the game. In a statement announcing the new book, the game’s narrative director, Jeffrey Yohalem, praised the publisher and creators Kahn and Brooks:
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Dark Horse comics on the next chapter of Fenyx’s adventure. Ben and Georgeo tell this riveting tale with humor, heart and soul. Can’t wait to share it with all of you!”
The new Immortals Fenyx Rising graphic novel continues the ongoing relationship between Dark Horse and Ubisoft. Dark Horse has previously published an art book for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, as well as a three-issue miniseries tie-in to the game, Song of Glory, a hardcover collection of which is due out in April.
The world of Greek mythology is vast, with plenty of areas to explore and expand on, and this new graphic novel sounds like a lot of fun. The 64-page Immortals Fenyx Rising: From Great Beginnings graphic novel will arrive with a cover price of $12.99 in comic shops on Wednesday, September 22nd, and in bookstores on Tuesday, October 5th.
