Prolific writer Justin Jordan is expanding his creator-owned footprint with a new title at AfterShock Comics with artist Elonora Carlini. Scheduled to debut December 20, Backways is the name of a secret land of magic a la Chronicles of Narnia or Harry Potter, and an 'odinary' human woman named Anna Merrick thinks someone from there kidnapped a person close to her - and wants them back.
"There's nothing else on the shelves like Backways. It's a fun story in a world like you've never seen, but if that doesn't sell you on it, just look at Eleonora's art," said Jordan. "This is my second series with Aftershock, and I've really enjoyed working with them. They've helped me tell the stories I wanted to tell better than I could tell them on my own, which is what I am always looking for in a creative partner."
Here is the solicitation for the first issue:

Anna Merrick lost someone in the Backways, and she’ll stop at NOTHING to get them back. Even if it means unleashing something unimaginable.
