A Wave Blue World’s Mezo, Volume 1: Rise of the Tzalekuhl is out this week – and the publisher has provided the full first issue for interested readers.
“The story is set in a fictional world, so it’s not our Earth,” writer/publisher Tyler Chin-Tanner told Newsarama. “We drew inspiration from Mesoamerican history in the same way that many fantasy epics draw on Anglo-Saxon history.”

“A warrior’s strength is not measured by their armor, but by the heart that beats beneath it.”
In the land of Mezo, the Tzalekuhl Empire sets out to conquer all surrounding territories, disrupting the peace that has lasted for generations. Only Kyma, the daughter of a fallen chief who refused to yield, stands in their way. As the solar eclipse nears, can she unite the tribes to stand against their common enemy, an emperor determined to make them kneel before his god or be sacrificed in his name? Inspired by Mesoamerican history and legends, MEZO is a totally unique fantasy adventure driven by war, political intrigue, and ancient magic!
