Hank and Schaal arrive at the small mining town of Coalwalls, situated within the borders of New Patria. Cain has made the town a Divine Protectorate under the aegis of the Incarnate Griffin, whom Hank has come to kill. But once in Coalwalls they encounter Faun, daughter of the former mine owner and leader of a gang of roughnecks who are fighting to take back what New Patria has stolen from them. This is a hard place, where no one can live on kindness alone... How far will Faun go to regain what was taken from her? And will she side with the man who has come to kill the Incarnate Griffin—who was once her father, Francis Wells?
About the Author
MAYBE is a two-man cartooning team based out of Japan. According to reports both members were born in 1984, and they broke into the world of comics by debuing with indie publisher Okura Publishing in 2005. MAYBE would continue to work in the world of indie comics for a few years, eventually making a name for themselves with Wani Magazine's Comic Kairakuten.
In 2006 the pair broke through into the mainstream by getting picked up by beloved shonen publisher Akita Shoten (publishers of Black Jack). Starting in 2008 MAYBE moved into the realm of video game design creating characters and background art for video game producers RailSoft.
After nearly five years of journeymen work, the duo broke through with their first hit series Dusk Maiden of Amnesia by SquareEnix. The 10-volume horror series was an instant success and would inspire an animated TV series and radio dramas of the same name. Since then MAYBE has worked with major publishers - Kodansha and SquareEnix - focusing on Japan's revitalized fantasy genre to great success. Their other current title Tales of Wedding Rings is being published in the US by CrunchyRoll.
