Jace chats with writer Joe Henderson about his upcoming title from Image comics, Shadecraft. The entire creative team from the Eisner Award nominated Skyward series is back to tell an all-new story. We’ve gone from the bright open world of Skyward to a much darker and intimate world where shadows are more than they seem and the main character, high schooler Zadie Lu, has to face the shadows of that world. Relatable and resonant, like Skyward it is a story of family, so join us to hear all the details.
