ARH ComiX is looking to offer readers three new series that blend together adventure and fantasy with quality art. Those three titles are Arhian: Head Huntress, Queen of Vampires and Sha-Ryn. Arhian: Head Huntress is written by Abrahom Radjah and illustrated by Yannis Roumboulias. The five-issue series offers the first look into the Arkhorian Wars, which will get a longer look in Age of Arhian. In the years after the third Arkhorian War, hordes of reavers, pirates and mercenaries roamed the world, their swords serving no cause but themselves or the highest bidder. Across those bloodstained lands rode Arhian, proud, fierce, her guile and wit as cutting as her blade. Storming through an age without heroes, she claimed it for hers, and cleaved her way into legend.
Queen of Vampires is a tale of horror, immortality and forbidden love set in ancient Mesopotamia, with its heroine, the cruel vampire queen Arkhalla, ruling her realm of enslaved humans with an iron fist until she falls in love with one of her slaves. It's written by Abraham Kawa and illustrated by Manos Lagouvardos. Finally, Sha-Ryn is illustrated by Nikos Koutsis. Set seven years before the events of Arhian: Head Huntress, at the height of the third Arkhorian War, the new series sees Mazkaran – the island haven of the Amazons – being invaded by unstoppable Arkhorian forces. It's in this desperate moment, with her sister away and her people facing imminent death and destruction, that young Sha-Ryn must forge herself into a heroine – or die trying.
“This is a wholly different animal then ARHIAN,” Radjah and Kawa assure us. “Sure, it's got tremendous fighting, great storytelling, and a beguiling heroine – ARH's trademarks – but just as Sha-Ryn is young and bursting with enthusiasm here, this tale is meant to highlight the fun we and our readers can have in such a world. We got everything on this island: Amazons, jungle action, great beasts that time has forgotten, mayhem, cliffhangers… This is high adventure and action of a classic caliber with an ARH twist: if your jaw doesn't drop on every splash page, folks… you should check your pulse!”
