But will the Kid's magical emergence come too late to save the world Cody knows... and the family he loves?

As I mentioned before, I enjoyed Ploog&DeMatteis over on ABADAZAD, and am curious to read the prose/comics hybrid continuation of that. I was interested in this series as well, but don't ever recall seeing the issues that Image published last year. Still good to see it continuing, and when they come out with a collection of the series I'll take a look. Ploog's art looks nicely bizarre on that cover.
