Birthright Embarks on New Story Arc


Joshua Williamson, Andrei Bressan and Adriano Lucas are no strangers to success. Their work on Birthright is certainly garnering the attention of comic book fans the world over and on April 8, the second arc will kick off. And the new chapter in the fantasy epic will feature a cover by James Harren. In Birthright #6, Mikey’s return has divided the Rhodes family in unexpected ways. Where do they go from here?

Previously in Birthright, readers met the Rhodes Family—parents still coping with the grief of a missing child—after their young son Mikey disappeared one year ago. Just as the tragedy tears the family asunder and the possibility of his return looks bleak, Mikey reappears, but nothing could have prepared them for who he is now. Snatched from his life by beings from another world, Mikey became a hero whose destiny was to save the land of Terrenos. A grown man hardened by battles with dragons, trolls, and evil mages, Mikey is back to save Earth from the same peril that threatened Terrenos in Birthright.

The new adventure begins in Birthright #6, which arrives in stores on April 8 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code FEB150509. Cover B by James Harren can be ordered with Diamond Code DEC148492. Full press release below.
