"Beyond the wall is a goddess who was shackled by 700 of her siblings. In her prison she keeps a fluid garden of flowers which can bring the dead back to life. To get to her, a bargain will be struck for your body. You must walk amongst the fallen. Your sword must divide her jailer. None of these things are easy. Especially a second time."
Ashen, the most recent small-press release from cartoonist Chase Van Weerdhuizen, is the story of a woman who must journey beyond a grim wall at the edge of her world to try and save the life of her sister, though this time it may be futile.
