Jason Alacrity and artist Megan Hutchison have teamed up to make a comic version of the short film “ASTRID” now named “VESNA”.

The comic follows the story of a reclusive young girl that discovers she is cursed with a deadly power after witnessing the death of her family at the hands of corrupt cops. Now she hunts them with the power that consumes her, and makes her a target for demons and other dark forces.

“VESNA” is slated for a summer 2016 release.
