Writer Ram V is quickly becoming one of the busiest names in comics, with upcoming projects from DC Comics and Vault Comics. Speaking of this new series, Ram V said “‘The Many Deaths of Laila Starr’ is a strange, funny, odd, and occasionally morbid comic about death, love, innocence, and the human condition.” He spoke about how his Indian background inspired the series, explaining “where I come from, gods are flawed, perhaps more so than people. Life is an endless cycle of trying to get things right, and death? Death is only the beginning.”
Artist Filipe Andrade, coming fresh off of 2020’s “Star” mini-series, said that “‘The Many Deaths of Laila Starr’ is a story about love and connection, but also the beauty and cruelty of it.” Ram V’s script takes readers through a journey into a near-future version of Mumbai, which Andrade says is “…touched by a mystic and exotic perfume. I want to transport and involve the reader in this trippy and vibrant world.” Andrade will also be drawing the main series’ covers, with variants from David Mack and Anand RK.
