“KAYA is the ongoing all-ages title we’ve been waiting for! Combining the wonder of Jeff Smith’s Bone with the adventure of Kazu Kibuishi’s Amulet, KAYA is a perfect example of a comic that can hook anyone AND keep them coming back every month.” -Patrick Brower (Challengers Comics + Conversation, Chicago)

    Kaya #13 returns to the series’ central quest in media res and introduces readers to a new companion as Kaya and Jin travel through a pirate’s dungeon bound to thrill fans of D&D. The opening sequence is a bold thesis statement for everything this series does so well – filled with inventive traps and colorful threats addressed with creativity (and occasional humor) by a band of eclectic, lovable heroes. While most of the issue is composed of this introductory action sequence, it scratches the itch for wonder, suspense, and thrills before delivering the necessary exposition for the third arc’s core story. Coming with pirates, princesses, and overwhelming odds, it’s bound to be another triumphant outing and shows readers that this series isn’t set to lose its head of steam anytime soon.
