Boom! Studios Relaunching Fan-Favorite Series from Michael Alan Nelson.
Boom! Studios announced yesterday a relaunch of HEXED, one of the publishers most popular titles from writer Michael Alan Nelson (DAY MEN) and will feature the art of newcomer Dan Mora. Original series artist Emma Rios (Pretty Deadly) returns to illustrate the covers for the new ongoing series. HEXED tells the story about thieves who work in a mystical clandestine world and features Luci Jennifer Inagcio Das Neves, otherwise referred to as Lucifer, a thief-for-hire with supernatural powers and abilities.
Editor-in-Chief for Boom! Studios, Matt Gagno calls HEXED, “hands-down one of my favorite titles we’ve ever published. 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!”
Lucifer, who has appeared in FALL OF CTHULHU VOL. 3: THE GRAY MAN and the 2011 HEXED limited series, is a quick-witted mash-up of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lara Croft. HEXED was Pretty Deadly and Amazing Spider-Man superstar Emma Rios’ introduction to the American comics scene back in 2008, and new series artist Dan Mora is poised to continue the trend with his lyrical, horrific, and wholly unique take on Lucifer.
HEXED #1 arrives in comic book shops on August 13th with a main cover by Emma Riosfor the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code JUN140934. There will also be a retailer incentive cover illustrated by series artist Dan Mora available in limited quantity. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer?
