What is Gumaa: The Beginning of Her about?

“Gumaa: The Beginning of Her takes place in a 1980s, crime-ridden Hell,” Titan said of the series. “When young Khalida attempts to escape from an influential and sinister drug syndicate, she discovers an ancient blade in a long-abandoned temple. 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.”

“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,” Lee added. “The way these characters navigate their path through these horrific events is what makes them who they are.”

Gumaa: The Beginning of Her was highly regarded by many fans and creators during its time on Kickstarter. Something is Killing the Children’s James Tynion IV praised, “[Gumaa: The Beginning of Her is] an urban fantasy, laced with horror and noir, brought to incredible life with Jeehyung’s phenomenal artwork.”

Gumaa: The Beginning of Her #1 features cover art by Lee, Peach Momoko, SOZOMAIKA, and Ben Oliver. The issue releases on December 6 from Titan Comics.
