Amelia Earhart goes Elsewhere with Image Comics this August

Elsewhere is a new teen friendly comic on the way from Image Comics this August. Its story, by Jay Faerber with art by Sumeyye Kesgin, centers around famed pilot Amelia Earhart who famously disappeared back in the thirties.

There have been many theories offers as to what happened to Amelia but I’m pretty sure ending up on another world as a freedom fighter wasn’t one of them.

Somehow transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and baffling alien civilizations, Amelia desperately struggles to return home. Along the way, she forges alliances and makes enemies as she goes from aviatrix to freedom fighter in a rebellion against a merciless warlord!

“ELSEWHERE is the kind of series I’ve wanted to tackle for a long time, with exotic characters, fantastic creatures, and huge scope,” said Faerber. “But I needed a relatable character to hang everything on. I found that character in Amelia Earhart—she’s inspiring, courageous, and most of all, real. And I’ve found the perfect partner to help me navigate this thrilling adventure: artist Sumeyye Kesgin. She’s incredible, and absolutely vital to bringing this world to life.”

“It’s an incredible experience working with Jay Faerber!” said Kesgin. “He’s one of the best writers I’ve ever known, and I was really fascinated when he first showed me the outline of the story. I am having fun while creating the entire ELSEWHERE universe because of my love for fantasy and aerial concepts, and I feel really honored, as a female artist, to draw Amelia Earhart.”

The preview reads well and there’s a lot of snappy dialogue which is always a big plus for me alongside the lovely artwork by Kesgin.

It is still early days in the story but given what I’ve read and the publicity blurb this is given me a Flash Gordon vibe which is all good in my book.

Have a read of the preview below and let us know if you will be adding this to your pull list.
