Haunted by their pasts, a crew of thieves is hired for a covert mission in the midst of a galaxy being ripped apart by an interstellar holy war. If they want to survive - much less succeed - they must navigate hostile worlds, vengeful aliens, a deranged demon, and betrayal from within. Collects the first six issues of the acclaimed sci-fi/fantasy series, as well as a pin-up and cover gallery. Perfect for fans of STAR WARS, FIREFLY, or SAGA.
- Advance praise - "CHIMERA is a fascinating genre hybrid, folding together science fiction, fantasy and more in a compelling package. This is a story worth checking out!" - James Tynion IV (DETECTIVE COMICS, THE WOODS)
"With its expert world-building and lush art, CHIMERA is a comic that's a simply stunning, carefully unfolding, science fiction fantasy." - Ngozi Ukazu (CHECK, PLEASE!)
"Thoroughly enjoyable and poignant. It has the air of SAGA about it, with a strong, compelling emotional story. Very great read." - Joe Glass (THE PRIDE)
“Stellar worldbuilding...Hard to resist: a charming group of rogues in a STAR WARS–ish universe that’s far more adult, diverse, and relevant than George Lucas’s...Ellis’s character design and facial expressions are so akin to Fiona Staples’s sprightly, tight art style that it’s hard to ignore the flattery.” – PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Nominated for a 2018 Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity in Comics!
