Issues[edit | edit source]

Part one[edit | edit source]

"The powerful and mischievous Archfey Artagan, also known as the Traveler, finally gets his day in court—which is the LAST thing he wanted. But since he's here, he's happy to tell the Seelie and Unseelie Courts how he's graced the material realms with his knowledge and mentorship. But there are witnesses who may have a different take, and the consequences could be dire."[2]

Part two[edit | edit source]

"Artagan stands trial against an entirely misplaced charge of mans-laughter. The Unseelie Court seems determined to label him as a villain, and Artagan must take matters into his own hands. Can Artagan spin the tale of a century, or will his actions finally catch up to him?"[3]

Part three[edit | edit source]

"The mystery of Artagan's hatred of the theatre is revealed! This fey trickster can't help but steal the spotlight, even while claiming to be above the drama. When chaos ensues and bridges are burned, will he have anyone left to turn to? In classic fabulous fey fashion, the show must go on."[4]

Part four[edit | edit source]

"Artagan seeks counsel from an old friend. When Jester suggests it might be time to face the truth, Artagan resists. Is he truly at fault for the chaos left in his wake? Will a change of heart convince the court, or is Artagan doomed to face an eternity in prison?"[5]

Publication[edit | edit source]

The miniseries will run for four issues. The first issue was released on January 3, 2024[6][1] with the second issue slated for February 21, 2024.[7]
