Portland, OR – Comics publisher ABLAZE announces the launch of a new comic book series that puts a new spin on an animal uprising, with the debut of ANIMAL CASTLE on December 1st.
Writer, Xavir Dorison, and artist, Felix Delep, shine in ANIMAL CASTLE as they build on an Orwellian premise and move the story in a bold and unexpected new direction.
The full-color opening issue of the series will be available in-print and digitally from leading comic retail partners and online platforms.
ANIMAL CASTLE, by Xavier Dorison & Felix Delep Issue 1 MSRP:
$3.99 Release Date: December 1st
On the Farm all animals were equal. But in the Castle, some are more equal than others.
Nestled in the heart of a farm forgotten by men, the Animal Castle is
ruled with an iron hoof by President Silvio. The bull and his dog militia savor their power, while the other animals are exhausted by work, until the arrival of the mysterious Azelard, a traveling rat who will teach them the secrets of civil disobedience.
“For fans of Animal Farm, the bestselling Stray Dogs and the Eisner Award winning Beasts of Burden comes a fable that is both familiar and surprising,” says Rich Young, co-founder of ABLAZE. “You may think you know the story but set aside your assumptions, ANIMAL CASTLE offers a compelling new take on timeless themes of class equality, oppression, and rebellion. The art on this series is phenomenal. Felix Delep breathes life into every page and illustrates the animals in a unique and unforgettable style.”
