Image Comics Exclusive Preview: SLEEPLESS

Images Comics released an exclusive five-page preview to Monkeys Fighting Robots for the YA fantasy, Sleepless by Sarah Vaughn and Leila del Duca.

About the Image series:
Lady “Poppy” Pyppenia, daughter of a king, is ever guarded by the devoted Sleepless Knight Cyrenic. But a new king has just been crowned—and danger lurks anew around each and every corner.

Check out the preview below.

“SLEEPLESS is a story that is very dear to me, grown from an idea I would play in my head at night as I tried to fall asleep. It’s wonderful to see the book come to life with Leila, Alissa, and Deron. I hope readers enjoy reading about Poppy and Cyrenic and getting a little more romance, costumes, and fantasy in their lives,” said Vaughn.
