Hexed Returns for More Supernatural Thievery
Despite the fact that the characters in heist movies are breaking the law, you always want to see them succeed. Let them get away with the loot. What if you added the supernatural into the mix? That's the case with Hexed, a new ongoing series from creator Michael Alan Nelson and artist Dan Mora, scheduled to begin in August from BOOM! Studios.
This is actually a relaunch of Hexed, which was first published in 2011. The new comic will return to Aether with Luci Jennifer Inacio Das Neves, better known as "Lucifer," the supernatural thief-for-hire as she battles the dark denizens of the netherworld in search of wondrous objects for her mentor / mother figure, Val Brisdendine. Emma Rios, who worked on the original Hexed series, returns to illustrate covers.
“Hexed is hands-down one of my favorite titles we’ve ever published,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “The original Hexed series with Michael and Emma was a special series for all involved, and ahead of its time in many ways. Emma has gone on to become a titan as a comic book artist and Michael remains one of the best in the business when it comes to dark urban fantasy. Meanwhile, all of us have always wanted to come back to Luci. Her story is barely beginning. Lucifer is sharp, courageous, and just cool, exactly the type of rogue thief you want to follow. And in the tradition of Hexed, we’re debuting another breakout series artist in the incredible Dan Mora. Make sure you get in early on this one!”
I haven't read the original Hexed comic, but now I really want to. It's described as a "quick-witted mash-up of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lara Croft." If that's the case, I'm so in.
Hexed #1 will be released on August 13th for $3.99. It will feature a main cover by Emma Rios and a limited retailer incentive cover by series artist Dan Mora.
