AfterShock Comics has announced Animosity Tales, its 2019 Free Comic Book Day release.
Set in the world of Animosity, where animals have gained sapient intelligence, Animosity Tales is a 32-page free title written by Marguerite Bennett with art from Elton Thomasi.
“Animosity Tales is our gift to the fans who have made Animosity one of the most popular and sought after titles on the indie scene and AfterShock one of the most talked about new publishers in comics,” said AfterShock Editor-In-Chief Mike Marts. “Fans of the series and new readers are in for a treat with this free, single issue special edition from an incredible creator and storyteller.”
“I hope readers new and old will get a kick out of the more light-hearted tale of the world of Animosity and the events of the Wake, the day the Animals all ‘woke up’ and gained the powers of thought and speech previously reserved only for humans,” added Marguerite Bennett. “Our FCBD story is fun, funny (fin? finny?) adventures of a certain Siamese fighting fish and his college student mistress – while the birds, bees, and other Animals run amok in the aftermath, our betta fish is determined not to let a glass bowl or tank walls keep him from living life to the fullest.”
