I’d love to think there’s a Russian tradition of comics that regards the great Ivan Bilibin as its founding father. (1) Ruslan And The Head (1917), and (2) The Beautiful Maiden Before The Kingdom Of Finist The Falcon (1900).

‘Emma Rios’ and Malaysian artist Hwei Lim’s Mirror is a story set in an isolated colony growing around a landed lab starship. This community is a safe haven in which magicians and scientists of the House of Healers experiment with the satellite’s local fauna to create human/animal hybrids, the experiments a means of obtaining insight which could then be utilised to win political favour in a desperate cosmic war. The growing band of hybrids, however, want nothing to do with war or politics, and especially not with their patronizing human creators; and want only to be left to live in piece and on their own. Hwei Lim has done an utterly breathtaking job on these pages- the colours and lines are so crisp and clear, and just take a look at those panels and layouts- the arcs and circles, that architectural design incorporated into the cutaways- seriously stunning. I can’t imagine people looking at these pages and not wanting to pick this up. Very much excited for this series.’

The artist says:
Everything about people interests me. The complexity of people’s behaviour has always intrigued me, and inspired me to visually express the range of emotion we see in the human condition. I explore the parallels between ordinary people that I come across in real life and the people that reside in my imagination, my own representations of emotion.
