A young woman in modern-day New York is pulled into the clandestine world of the 'Paths when her Quantum Leap-like ability to experience the life of a 13th century Japanese warrior begins to manifest, launching her on a global race across time to unravel an ancient mystery before mankind is consumed by darkness.
What makes PATHS unique is that it's a hero's journey told two ways, simultaneously: in the past, with KAZE on a traditional hero's journey, and in the present, with KIMA on a separate-yet-linked heroine's journey of her own.
Thematically, PATHS examines why history repeats itself and the dual narrative allows us to explore the concepts of Joseph Campbell's Monomyth theory while challenging the roles women typically play in hero's journeys.
Themes aside, PATHS is an epic supernatural action/adventure comic series brimming with intrigue. It will take readers on a fantastical journey around the world and across time with a diverse cast of memorable characters in a tale that's part Quantum Leap, part X-Men and The Matrix.
