You may think you've read enough takes on "Help, we got sucked into a fantasy universe!" but I will still suggest that you consider this one, as it's unusual and just plain good enough to be worth it, even for those who have had multiple encounters with the theme before. For me, the twist that made it worth it was these people in their 40s (with all the baggage and history that entails) being sucked back into a world they thought they had forever left behind, paired with the companions of their youth. It's a lot!
It's Kieron Gillen, so the world-building is incredible (and even by his standards, there is a lot of work put into this world). Stephanie Hans is a newer artist to me, but her art is just incredible, especially how she plays with light and how characters changed over the passage of time (and between our world and the fantasy world).
This is going to be an auto-buy for me, I can't wait to see how this story develops.
