About The Book

The lone wolf finally finds her pack!

After years of growing up in the wild, Lupa finally encounters her destiny and finds her tribe. Far in the mountains, the monks at the mysterious monastery welcome Lupa into a world she never expected and introduce her to her true sisters. Each of the young women represents a different aspect of the same goddess, and each of them will have to learn to work together in order to save their world!

As Lupa uncovers the secrets of her past, where she comes from and who she really is, she finds herself enmeshed in a story bigger than she could imagine. From the evil empress Salkis to the imprisoned goddess Corasina – the fullness of Lupa’s destiny becomes clear!

About The Author

James F. Wright is a Los Angeles-based writer, reader, and ramen eater. He's been writing comics for a while now, and been reading them for as long as he can remember. James is the co-creator, with Li Buszka, of Legendary Comics' girl-raised-by-a-wolf fable, Lupina. In 2018 he and artist Josh Eckert were nominated for an Eisner and PRISM Award for their self-published one-shot queer, sci-fi romance short, Contact High. That same year, he and artist Rashad Doucet contributed the sci-fi short, "Thrustfall," to Ascend Press's Eisner and Ignatz Award-winning anthology, Elements: Fire, edited by Taneka Stotts and Shing-Yin Khor. In 2020, James and Jackie Crofts completed their five-volume culinary coming-of-age crime saga, Nutmeg. His work has also appeared in the Iron Circus Comix anthologies FTL, Y'all (with Teo DuVall), and You Died (with Jackie Crofts). When he's not writing comics, he enjoys cooking, baking, and going to the movies (when it's safe to do so)

Raves and Reviews

"With Lupina, Wright and Buszka have created something both accessible and absolutely unique. An immersive folkloric fable that pushes the boundaries of what sequential storytelling can be, while telling a truly human story."

– Rosie Knight, writer of The Haunted High-Tops and Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Battra
