FIRE AND ICE #1

(W) Bill Willingham (A) Leonardo Manco (CA) Frank Frazetta

A FANTASY CLASSIC RETURNS TO LIFE WITH AN ALL-NEW PREQUEL SERIES!

More than four decades ago, two iconic creators came together to bring to the silver screen an amazing new world of magic and adventure. In their classic animated film Fire and Ice, legendary artist FRANK FRAZETTA and famed director RALPH BAKSHI crafted a unique vision of beauty and danger, of good versus evil, all cast against a hypnotic backdrop of savage prehistoric splendor.

Now, at long last, this timeless vision is expanding into comics with the first new story to revisit Frazetta and Bakshi’s remarkable realm since 1982!

Before the fire waned and the ice spread across the world… before Teegra met Larn… before everything you know about the unforgettable animated movie came to be, there were the before times – times when evil might still be blunted, times when innocence was not yet lost.

In Fire and Ice #1, acclaimed comics writer BILL WILLINGHAM (Fables, Legenderry) joins forces with artist LEONARDO MANCO (Hellstorm: Prince of Lies, Blaze of Glory) – making his triumphant return to comics – and a new legend is about to be born!
