Gumaa: The Beginning of Her, a neo-noir thriller by DC and Marvel cover artist Jeehyung Lee is heading to Titan Comics.
“Gumaa: The Beginning of Her takes place in a 1980s, crime-ridden Hell. When young Khalida attempts to escape from an influential and sinister drug syndicate, she discovers an ancient blade in a long-abandoned temple,” the description reads. “Using its power, Khalida becomes the Goddess of the City, controlling the citizens through dark magic and fear.”
“But events are being manipulated against her from the shadows, targeting Khalida. A final action-packed confrontation will reawaken the ancient war and change the balance of power between Heaven and Hell… forever,” the description continues.
The seven-part thriller marks Lee’s original comic debut. The first issue will feature covers by Peach Momoko, Sozomaika, Ben Oliver, and Lee.
“When you’re reading Gumaa, I hope you’re thinking about the choices these characters make, and whether you might do things the same way or do things totally different. The way these characters navigate their path through these horrific events is what makes them who they are,” Lee said.
Gumaa: The Beginning of Her debuts on December 6, 2023.
