I’ve been waiting for this comic to come out for quite some time now. As a long time fan of the show, I and I’m sure many other of us die-hard fans have been anxious for some new Xena material. Personally I can’t wait to go along with Xena and Gabrielle on some adventures. Yes, I know we are possibly getting a new tv series, but that is a whole different ball game, and frankly, a touchy subject.
The comic is published by Dynamite Comics, written by Genevieve Valentine with artwork by Ariel Medel.
This is how the publisher is describing the comic:
“After the Twilight of the Gods, the world is precariously uncertain – and Xena and Gabrielle have been missing from it for twenty-five years. Even without Livia, the power of Rome is growing: Caesar is determined to conquer by lies what he can’t conquer by force, and the people at its edges know what’s coming. (All roads lead to Rome, and Rome is hunting.) Xena and Gabrielle scramble to stop him before they have to wage war against a man they once called a friend. But along the way, Xena will have to confront her past against a rogue band of women warriors, and Gabrielle, whose secret visions are becoming prophecy, will have to protect Xena – at any cost.”
From what I can see it looks amazing. I have not had a chance to preview the comic, which released on Wednesday, April 13, 2016. Make sure to ask your comic shop if they will be carrying it, and if not, request it! The TPB is out in January!
