Magic was once plentiful and prosperous across the realm—but ever since the Quench brought the world to its knees, magic has become the rarest of resources. Bandits strive for it. Knights die for it. And one antisocial former bard named Hum will ride his mutant unicorn to the ends of the earth for just a drop of it...as magic is the one thing that will save the soul of his wife. Written by Eisner Award-nominated author Simon Spurrier (Sandman Universe, The Spire) and lavishly illustrated by artist Matías Bergara (Supergirl, Cannibal), Coda Volume Two continues the critically-acclaimed dystopian fantasy series that explores the relentless hangover of life in the aftermath of apocalypse.
Simon Spurrier (The Spire, Godshaper) and Matías Bergara (Cannibal, Supergirl) present a broken fantasy world that’s perfect for fans of Mad Max and The Lord of the Rings. In the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, a former bard named Hum (a man of few words, so nicknamed because his standard reply is “hm”) seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him...but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the Weird Wasteland.
Still reeling from the return of his past, Hum and the hero of Ridgetown must set out to infiltrate the bandit city of Thundervale to investigate the existence of a supposed surviving Whitlord, the dark beings that set about the apocalypse.
