Read an excerpt from The Krillian Key
Pursued by warring human/alien hybrids, the immortal Kyrill, also known as Salamander, is the key to a prison forged by the seven gods of creation. While one of the warring factions moves to protect him, the other seeks to use him to open the prison. The Krillian Key: Salamander Run is a sassy, fast-paced Indigenous-themed graphic novel set in the post-apocalyptic future of Neo-New York circa 2242, with flashbacks to modern-day Canada.
An exciting, fast-pasted story, written and illustrated by NShannacappo, illustrator of the award-winning graphic novel, If I Go Missing.
