Yaya Han to Star in Comic Book Series Wonderous II

Cosplay Superstar Yaya Han Suits Up with Lion Forge Comics in Wonderous II

Digital Publisher Lion Forge Develops New Digital Comic Book Series Starring Cosplay Entertainer Yaya Han

ST. LOUIS – July 15, 2014 – Professional model, costume designer and cosplay veteran Yaya Han is starring in her own comic book series by Lion Forge Comics, Wonderous II. After appearing on the television series Heroes of Cosplay, the fan favorite cosplayer will be Wonderous-ly fighting off villains and melting fanboy's hearts as her new comic book persona at this year's Comic-Con International: San Diego.

Lion Forge's Wonderous series chronicles the adventures of super powered women in the Catalyst Prime Universe. Wonderous II is the sequel to the original Wonderous series, which starred 2011 Playmate of the Year, Claire Sinclair. In the new series, the story picks up when the tainted medical study compound finds its way into the cosplay world and infects aspiring costume designer, Yaya Han.

Readers follow Yaya as she discovers her newfound superpowers and fights crime in the colorful cosplay world alongside her quirky best friend, Crane. Wonderous II is penned by Joelle Sellner, who also wrote the first Wonderous series and is currently writing Saved By the Bell and Punky Brewster for Lion Forge. The artwork for Wonderous II is handled by Francesco Gerbino and Sai Studios.

Lion Forge adds Wonderous II to its collection of celebrity inspired titles, including Rampage Jackson: Street Soldier, based on professional MMA fighter, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and The Joshua Run, based on actor/comedian Flex Alexander.

Fans can catch up with the first Wonderous series here and via the Comics Plus app for iOS and Android. Wonderous II will be available for purchase in October through the Amazon Kindle Bookstore and Comics Plus app for iOS and Android devices.
