In this brand new adventure in the Eisner Award-Nominated apocalyptic fantasy world of Coda, the despondent bard Hum finds a slice of tranquility with his wife, the Urken named Serka, in an ever-darkening, magic-less apocalypse - or so it seems.

Prophecies of paradise and the return of magic? Hum is skeptical, while Serka faces difficult moral decisions on the road, with winter quickly approaching...
New and returning fans alike shouldn't miss the highly anticipated return of Coda from GLAAD Media Award winning writer Simon Spurrier (Damn Them All, The Flash) and EW's 2019 Artist of the Year Mat as Bergara more

    It's a great balance that reestablishes the characters, addresses how things have evolved for Hum and Serka, and sets up what may just be the wildest adventure yet. Read Full Review

    The final pages hammer how just how much Hum and Serka's life has changed from when we last saw them, and with them both finding themselves drawn into their own (shudder) “quests”, it's going to be really interesting to see how the rest of this series unfolds. Whatever happens though, I'm going to be right there every step of of the way yet again, because like a drunken reunion with an old friend, Coda's triumphant return ticks every chaotic, subversive box you could possible hope for.

    The pure imagination in every panel of Coda #1 makes this a home run of a start for this series. The way all these fantasy characters deal with a post-apocalyptic setting keeps your attention from beginning to end. It is a great entry point for the world created by Simon Spurrier and Matias Bergara. Read Full Review
