I’ve been a fan of G. Willow Wilson since the first Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel comics came out. Wilson is now blasting off into space, creating a world reminiscent of Saga, with intrigue, political chess games, and daring escapes across the galaxy. Christian Ward’s art is full of candy-jar colors, bringing this space epic to vibrating life. This is perfect for the comic book fan who wants to get into stories outside of the superhero genre.

Eisner Winner for Best New Series of 2020!
Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning author G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) and acclaimed artist Christian Ward (2020 Eisner Winner for Best Painter/Digital Artist on this title) team up for an epic sci-fi saga!
In a small solar system in a far-flung galaxy, two women—one a young religious acolyte and the other, a hard-bitten freighter pilot—uncover a conspiracy between the leaders of the most dominant religion and an all-consuming mega-corporation.
On the run from reprisals on both sides, this unlikely pair must decide where their loyalties lie—and risk plunging the world into anarchy if they reveal the truth.
Collects Invisible Kingdom #1–#5.
