Publisher Description.  The Eisner Award winning Little Bird creative team of writer Darcy Van Poelgeest (Critical Role: The Tales of Exandria the Bright Queen, Lotus Land) and artist Ian Bertram (House of Penance) reunite for their gripping return to the dystopian American Empire in the upcoming Precious Metal.  This six-issue miniseries is set to launch in June from Image Comics.

Set 35 years before the events of Little Bird, Vol. 1: The Fight For Elder's Hope, Precious Metal follows disillusioned mod-tracker Max Weaver.  When a routine hunt for a modified child takes a grisly and unexpected turn, he finds himself saddled with an unpredictable mod who may be the key to unlocking his missing memories.  Soon Max will find that he isn’t the only one interested in the child’s unique abilities—and if he wants to know more, it’s going to cost him everything.
