A Distant Soil (2nd Series)

    (Aria, 1993-2006, 2013)
ô and ©1993 Colleen Doran

This series is the story of Jason and Lianna Scott. Held in a psychic research institute since they were children, they finally managed to escape by utilizing powers they had just discovered in themselves. Soon afterward, they were encountered Rieken and DíMer, humanoids from another world, who had come to enlist the kidsí aid in freeing their galaxy from the enslaving power of the planet Ovanon. Lianna learns that she is an Avatar, potentially the most powerful psychic in the universe. Jason is a Disruptor, able to control the flow of electricity in people and things. So long as these two are alive, Ovanonís power is in jeopardy.

A Distant Soil originally appeared as a preview in Elfquest #16, and went on to become a regular series for Elfquest publisher Warp Graphics. With this 1993 series, creator Colleen Doran decided to begin self-publishing with her new company Aria Press.
