All right, so I recently read a little short story called THE TRIA by Matt King (@kingmatte on Twitter). It is a delightfully dark look at the origin of several badass super villains in King’s Circle War Universe. Because the story is so short, I can’t really give much of a summary other than it was awesome, terrifyingly gory in a short amount of time, and really leaves you wanting more.
King’s debut book, called GODSEND, is still languishing in publishing limbo. Now, my hearts, I want you to send all the good vibes you can to the publishing industry so we can get this thing of the ground. It sounds epic.
The basis for the Circle War Universe is a civil war between immortal beings who are too powerful to fight for themselves, and thus must choose champions–from our modern-day earth. Champions, as in, superheroes.
It’s a series about superheroes, cats and kittens. Real talk: it’s a nerdgasm waiting to happen, I can feel it.
You can meet the main character, August Dillon, here. Once you’ve been acquainted, go ahead and click the link King provides so you can read the first chapter of GODSEND.
Then after that, go read THE TRIA. Immediately, if not sooner.
