KÀ the comic book from Cirque du Soleil and Marvel Entertainment
Cirque du Soleil and Marvel Entertainment have teamed up to tell the story of the epic Las Vegas live production KÀ through a series of collectible comic books.
These comics follow the heroic journey of the Imperial Twins, separated by war, who encounter adventure and peril at every turn on their quest to reunite their kingdom.
The first installment debuts at the Marvel booth at Comic-Con 2012, July 12 – 15, in San Diego. Fans can take the journey home with them or visit it live exclusively at MGM Grand in Las Vegas where KÀ unfolds on a colossal 360-degree rotating stage, complete with aerial adventure, perpendicular acrobatics, and an ever-changing theatrical landscape that conjures an entire empire on stage.
Explore some of the sketches from the penciling stage of the making of the KÀ comic book.
