Award winning director/screenwriter Darcy Van Poelgeest and fan-favorite artist Ian Bertram’s highly anticipated LITTLE BIRD launched this week from Image Comics!

In the world of LITTLE BIRD, North America has been devastated by three decades of war as the American Empire expands under an ultra-nationalist, theocratic government. But from the ashes of defeat rises LITTLE BIRD, a 12-year old girl who sets out to reignite the Canadian Resistance and discover her own identity in a world on fire.

With the same limitless scope as a new East of West or Saga—and the drama and surrealism of Akira—LITTLE BIRD follows a young resistance fighter in a science-fiction style reminiscent of Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Artist Ian Bertram first burst onto the scene with his haunting, macabre collaboration with Peter J. Tomasi on House of Penance and since then fans have been abuzz to see his next project hit shelves in LITTLE BIRD.

Critics are raving about LITTLE BIRD, and it is one of our new favorite comics here at EC!

“Brims with excellent artwork.” —The Daily Californian

“LITTLE BIRD is nothing short of a masterpiece and we’re only one issue in. We realize how insane that sounds, but once you read this thing you’ll see what we mean.” —Nerdist

“There’s a lot to unpack in this story for a first issue though, so it might require a second pass, but that’s hardly a downside considering how easy it is to become immersed in LITTLE BIRD’s world.” —

“A powerful and thought-provoking first issue. The story is clever and well-rounded and the art is lovely in a surrealistic way. I highly recommend this series.” —Impulse Gamer

“Dark, surreal, and addictive.” —Comic Book Resources
