Description


The follow up to the hit series Prism Stalker!

The planet Eriatarka grows more inhospitable as it’s colonization at the hand of the Chorus continues.


Vep and her fellow students are reaching the end of their basic combat training in the pneumatic arts and begin to exercise their abilities outside the colony-city of Elefstris. Their objective: subdue the unruly planet bent on scouring the Chorus’ presence from its surface. But what exactly are they subjugating? And what will the cost of conquering be?

Praise For…


“Prism Stalker rewires your brain with every page turn, leaving you both entranced by its invention and emboldened by its indignation. This is big-idea sci-fi of the highest order, and a rare depiction of the alien that feels truly and thoroughly ALIEN.”—Ezra Clayton Daniels, author of Upgrade Soul and BTTM FDRS.

“Vibrant, visceral, and vast in scope, Prism Stalker is a mind-bending, evocative, yet intimate story of a young woman's journey into herself—her past, her identity, the memories that make her whole. A wildly imaginative interrogation of the nuances of colonialism and complicity played out on a galactic scale, you will not soon forget the images, words, and world of Prism Stalker.”—Karin Lowachee, award winning author of the Warchild Mosaic.
 
“The most visually innovative graphic novel in years, PRISM STALKER pairs stunning art with a richly layered sci-fi thriller about the young scouts caught between a colonial empire telling them less than the truth and a planet that is more than it seems. Book of the year, hands down.”—Alex de Campi, creator of Dracula, Motherf**ker! and Twisted Romance
 
“Reading this book is a mindful experience. It demands your awareness, and like all great science fiction it will have you contemplating your own world and the roles we play in it. Sloane Leong’s Prism Stalker is a comic and its creator transcends, and we come out better for it.”—Nick Dragotta, creator of Ghost Cage and co-creator of East of West
 
“Electrifying and hallucinatory, Prism Stalker: The Weeping Star is like a psychic bomb exploding in your conscience. It's a nuanced meditation on settler colonialism in space. But it's also a mind-blowing, eyeball-melting trip through biological cities and sentient planets, full of flesh-ripping battles and satisfyingly incomprehensible alien life. The gorgeous, wild characters in this book will blast their way into your heart and refuse to leave.”—Annalee Newitz, author of The Terraformers and Autonomous


On Prism Stalker Volume 1:

 
“PRISM STALKER unfolds slowly and carefully like a delicate piece of paper, but here, the paper is not of any ordinary design; instead, this work by writer and artist Sloane Leong is a remarkable piece of origami where every facet is a different shade, every fold some intrepid experiment in color.”—The Oregonian

“Sloane Leong speaks with one of the most exciting and fresh new voices in comics. Prism Stalker is a bold declaration.”—Matt Fraction
 
“Leong’s art is stunning, the rough linework and vibrant palette breathing emotion into every panel; Prism Stalker is powerfully atmospheric, creating a rich backdrop for Vep’s personal journey to find her place in a world that wants her to forget what little she knows about herself.”—Paste Magazine
