As described by Gail Simone, Wonderfall is the all-ages debut of the ­beloved creative team behind the recent ­RED SONJA revival, Gail Simone and Walte­r Geovani, in their first creator-owned collaboration.
WONDERFALL is an epic fantasy, featuring­ the adventures of Yala, a young girl with powers even she isn't fully aware of,­ against the nightmarish forces that threaten her home and family.
