David Rubin and Santiago Garica’s Beowulf coming to English!

much anticipated. and hopefully coming in a nicely produced package.

If you’re buying Aurora West, and ideally you are, you should be buying Rubin’s Beowulf too.

Paul confirmed this at the middle grade SDCC panel. I haven’t finished talking to first second about the specifics but if you want to start drawing Aurora West, you’re within the prompt! Exercise your creative forces in your approach to the character! In costume, out of costume, just have fun. We’d also love to see art from the kids who love Battling Boy and Aurora West!

David Rubin and JT Petty did an excellent job in playing in Paul’s world and keeping a voice distinct for Aurora West from the tone of the Battling Boy books. The Rise of Aurora West is a fun pulpy book and I’m excited for working with first second again and everyone who gets to read this book.
