Writer: Marjorie Liu
Artist: Sana Takeda
Maika and her companions are ambushed by the elite guard of human religious warriors that have been sent to hunt her down. The dark creature linked to her mind resurfaces with an insatiable hunger and battles for control over Maika’s body. It inadvertently comes to her aid — but at what cost?
To fight the growing power of this mysterious beast, Maika must confront the deadly secrets that live inside her. She continues her quest for answers — who she is, her connection to this creature, the mystery behind her mother’s death — by pursuing the only clue she has, a photograph from her past.
“Liu and Takeda deftly manage the archetypal characters and not make them cliche; a very fine line to walk. Everyone is fully formed and nothing is done halfway or hastily, a sign of true talent and artistry.” – All-Comic
