Read a Full Chapter of the Epic Fantasy <i>Hunters</i> Anthology

From French translations to all-ages graphic novels to its own shared superhero universe, Lion Forge has refused to box itself in. On June 13, the publisher’s Magnetic Collection imprint, in conjunction with Buño Books, takes an experimental next step with the release of Hunters, an epic fantasy anthology co-created by Paul Maybury and Josh Tierney, with main story art by Miguel Valderrama. More than just a collection of loosely related short stories, Hunters features a framing story from Tierney and Valderrama and a host of breakout tales that follow individual characters and small groups on side missions that flow back into the main quest. The core story introduces Azarias, a famed warrior who gathers a varied band of adventurers to collect the dust of a distant island god in order to save the life of their king. In addition to Maybury, Tierney and Miguel Valderrama, Hunters features the talents of Carlos Valderrama, Afu Chan, Devin Kraft, Niami Awad, Meg Gandy, Jared Morgan, Irene Koh, Kyla Vanderklugt, Benjamin Marra, Alexis Ziritt, Travel Foreman, Carlos Carrasco, Vlad Gusev and Ramon Sierra. The final order cutoff for retailers to order the anthology is May 21st, and Paste has a special treat for curious readers: the entirety of Maybury’s chapter, entitled “Vulture.” Check it out below, and be sure to pick up Hunters in June for the rest of the story.
