East Side Mags is super-excited to welcome back our good friend Allen Watson - Kubert School graduate and one hell of an artist!!! He's got a book out that we were lucky enough to catch and back on Kickstarter called Drachein and we think it's gonna be a HIT! Plus - he's a local guy and we LOVE supporting local artists!!! Check out some info below!
Drachein is written by Daniel Curtin with art by Allen Watson (Shrptooth), and brought to life with colors by Tamas Vargas. The first issue also features variant covers from Wesley St. Claire (Fu Jitsu, Teen Titans Annual) Hugo Petrus (Nick Fury,Batman)
Drachein is an American fantasy epic set in a vast continent bearing the same name: Drachein. Drachein is a nation made of many tribes, collectively known as The Drachein. The Drachein are divided by their endless differences, yet united in their stand against the mighty Second Empire. With their enemy initially vanquished, the Drachein fell when their internal differences grew too tall. The malevolent survivors of the Second Empire regained strength in the cracks of the divided nation of Drachein and with a final blow destroyed the remnants of this once mighty people. Hence forth, the nation of Drachein was nothing more than ruins and empty memories. Aiyana, just a young girl, faces the aftermath of this conflict, not knowing that she is the last of the Drachein royal bloodline. Living as the protégé to Kanna, Aiyana must overcome her obstacles and reunite the Drachein once more.
The signing will be from 1pm-5pm (or later) and we'll have copies for sale. Additionally, Allen will be sketching for customers so get ready cuz Drachein is coming!!!
