49th Key is an original story from Erika Lewis and artist J.K. Woodward debuting at San Diego Comic-Con. 120 painted pages long, it was initially serialized in Heavy Metal Magazine from 2015-2016.
49th Key is based on the 16th century legend of Enochian magic, which tells of a secret language of angels. The first chapter in an expansive fantasy series tells of a rogue archeologist and a young mute boy on a treacherous journey through England to bring the boy home. The boy turns out to be the key to a gateway between our world and that of Enochia, a magical society that exists below the Earth’s surface, filled with fantasy creatures and highly advanced humans.
