Marvel and Cirque du Soleil Team Up to Bring KÀ to SDCC

Marvel and Cirque du Soleil have teamed up to bring the production KÀ to the world of comics. From the acclaimed live production comes the all-new comic which debuts at the Marvel Booth at Comic Con International in San Diego, July 12-15.

Marie-Hélène Gagnon, Artistic Director of KÀ, had this to say, “To see our live KÀ performances transform from the theatre to ink on pages in a comic book is an incredible opportunity for our entire team. By aligning ourselves with the premier brand of comic book creators, we have produced an illustration of KÀ that depicts the story very vividly and stays true to the plot. Marvel and its team of creators have been great to collaborate with and have embraced the story of KÀ and the expectations of Cirque du Soleil.”

“Marvel’s proud to bring the exciting, out of this world action and adventure of KÀ to life in this all new comic book,” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Worldwide, Inc. “This is a great comic for fans of all ages, whether they’re long-time fans of Marvel, KÀ or new to both exciting brands of storytelling.”

KÀ fans attending Comic Con International can take home the epic journey of Imperial Twins separated by war who encounter adventure and peril at every turn on their quest to reunite their kingdom.

“What’s more jaw-dropping, the majesty of the Imperial Court…the dynamic dance of their martial arts display…the overwhelming might of the invading archer army…the desperate fight for survival in the storm-tossed seas…or the tantalizing glimpses at the future threats that await the Twins?” said Marvel Editor Bill Rosemann. “Readers can decide for themselves when they feast their eyes on the all-out spectacle that writer Bryan J.L. Glass, artist Wellinton Alves and cover artist Michael Del Mundo have crafted in this world premiere debut issue.”

KÀ #1 will be distributed at Comic Con International in San Diego at the Marvel Booth. A limited number of books will be available at book stores in select markets. In addition to the print copy, fans can check out a digital copy of the comic on Marvel’s cutting-edge digital comics reader.

So, if you’re a fan of comics, a fan of KÀ, or interested in either, be sure check out this sure to be amazing book.
