A visionary new comic, Aquarius: The Book of Mer is a modern retelling of mermaid myths and legends from all over the world. In 1983 Harlem, something surfaces from the haunted lake of Astara’s dreams. She’s plagued by visions of Ancestors, monsters, and Merfolk. What will she sacrifice to finally have peace?

Aquarius: The Book of Mer will also feature an alternate cover by David Mack (Kabuki) and be accompanied by music for an unique storytelling experience.

“I like to look into the origins of things and find what is knowable of our history philosophy, and metaphors that may represent natural phenomena,” said Richardson in an exclusive scoop at ComicBook.com. “When looking into the origins of mermaids there seemed to be such a vast culture stretching everywhere I looked. Each land having a flood myth with common themes of half human half aquatic beings that pulled on the strings of nature and the emotions of humans. Where did it come from? What were their names and characteristics? It’s so easy to find what separates us these days. Leave it up to legend to reveal the rivers of our mythologies share a common source of inspiration.”

Aquarius: The Book of Mer #1 will be ON THE SHELF Wednesday, May 19, 2021.
