New York Times bestselling and award-winning comics creator Brian Michael Bendis (co-creator of Miles Morales, Jessica Jones, and Naomi) and André Lima Araújo (A Righteous Thirst for Vengeance) bring you the second volume in the Phenomena trilogy, Matilde’s Quest.
A young boy named Boldon, a mysterious girl named Matilde, and the warrior Spike—survivors of a phenomena that took over Earth years ago. Not an apocalypse . . . something far more interesting.
Following their adventure in The Golden City of Eyes, Matilde’s Quest brings our trio to Valentia Verona (formerly London, England)—one of the most fantastical places on the planet. There, with the help of Boldon and Spike, her newfound friends, Matilde is determined to confront the reason she was cast from her home to wander the land in the first place. But as they stop at each village Matilde has been protecting along the way, they begin to realize that rumors of their exploits are more widespread than they imagined. They are becoming legend and folklore. And with their mythology comes new threats. In a world where story is currency, they are becoming a powerful force to be reckoned with . . . and, at the same time, attracting attention from both bounty hunters and forces of darkness beyond their understanding.
With Phenomena, Bendis and Araújo deliver a universe chock-full of unforgettable characters, full-tilt action, stunning imagination, and world-building that is perfect for fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
“The world-building, the scope, the creatures, and the architecture . . . Phenomena looks like nothing you’ve ever seen. Bendis has always been a master of the power of story, but with Araújo they unlock something entirely original and fantastic. You’ll love this—and your family will too.”Brad Meltzer, bestselling author of the Ordinary People Change the World series
