Enter The World Of Dissonance This January

Designer Melita Curphy and writer Singgih Nugroho team up with artist Sami Basri (Power Girl, WITCHBLADE) for the sci-fi/fantasy drama DISSONANCE, coming this January from Image Comics/Top Cow.

“I am thrilled to see this world unfold thanks to Singgih, and my designs taken to new heights in the capable hands of Sami!” said Curphy. “Seraphim started out as a superhero helmet I made for myself years ago, and the folks at Glitch have made that come to life as an action figure and now a comic book. As a toy/comic fan for 30+ years, this is a dream come true!”

In an alternate world where Earth is populated with powerful human-spirit hybrids called Fantasmen, Folke and Roisia Herviett, two siblings with opposing worldviews, are challenged to prove their worth and take up their parents’ positions in a devious group that secretly runs the world. Meanwhile, Seraphim, a Fantasmen warrior guard, is sent to prevent a catastrophic event from affecting the Earth and its own universe.

“To build a unique world and write an engaging story from action figure lines is an interesting challenge, especially for a guy who spent his last decade writing for advertising,” said Nugroho. “But with inspiring design from Mel and great interpretation from Sami, I believe we just cracked an appealing approach that will excite readers.”

“When I was shown Murphy’s designs for this comic, I was blown away,” added Basri. “I love fantastic creatures, but my previous projects didn’t really involve much of them as a subject, so I was really happy at the chance to do DISSONANCE. Being given the liberty to help visually develop a totally new fantasy world, with an edgy script accompanying—it’s a fantastic feeling.”

DISSONANCE #1 (Diamond code: NOV170644) hits comic book shops Wednesday, January 10th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 18th.
