Codex Black: A Fire Among Clouds – Bow to the Will of the Gods in IDW’s Upcoming Fantasy Graphic Novel
IDW Publishing is stocking shelves with a new slate of Young Adult and Middle-Grade original graphic novels. They are kicking off this new initiative with Codex Black: A Fire Among Clouds written by Camilo Moncada Lozanzo with colors by Angel De Santiago which is based on the webcomic of the same name. This book promises monsters and mysteries that will have you binge-reading to figure out the will of the gods as two young adventurers search for a missing father in 15th-century Mesoamerica.
IDW‘s description of Codex Black reads:
“Donají is a fearless Zapotec girl who, even though she’s only fifteen, is heralded as a hero by her village. In Codex Black, Donají sets out on an adventure–accompanied by the god that lives inside of her poncho–to find her missing father. Along the way, she meets a 17-year-old winged Mexica warrior named Itzcacalotl, and over time their temporary partnership blooms into an incredible friendship.
The search brings the young pair closer to danger and deeper into mystery than either could have predicted. What exactly was Donají’s father involved with? And how did a simple search for a missing relative lead Donají and Itzcacalotl into a fight with a terrifying bat monster to defend an entire village?”
Codex Black: A Fire Among Clouds will be available at your favorite local comic shop on April 4, 2023.
