You know, we love Dark Horse Comics, but they're really pushing the limit with all of these press releases they've been sending out this weekend. I should start demanding a paycheck from them. What do they think ol' Jude Terror has nothing better to do than sit around on a Sunday afternoon and post press release after press release about all the awesome new comics Dark Horse is putting out? Does Dark Horse think I don't have a life?!
Okay, I'm not fooling anyone. This is the highlight of my day.
Here's the press release:
C2E2: THE OCCULTIST RETURNS!
It’s Harry Potter meets Trainspotting from Tim Seeley & Mike Norton!
APRIL 28, CHICAGO, IL—Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce that Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash) is returning with his rare mix of humor and horror in the supernatural superhero series The Occultist!
With acclaimed artist Mike Norton (Battlepug, The Answer!) on interior art and cover art by Steve Morris (Serenity, Angel & Faith), The Occultist will return this fall in the follow-up to its hugely successful 2011 miniseries!
When the Sword, a mysterious book of powerful spells, binds itself to him, the fact that Rob’s life has been falling apart doesn’t seem like such a big deal. To survive, Rob must learn to control the book’s unpredictable magic, while his life slips even further out of control . . .
An evil witch doctor wants the Sword to reject Rob, now known as the Occultist, by deciding that he is a bad host in the ongoing war against the realm of the dead. The solution lies in a Catholic schoolgirl who dabbles in death for a quick high.
Praise for The Occultist:
"The Occultist is a comic you should be checking out . . . If you want more of a magically fun and yet grounded character tale then put your money in to support this.”—Comic Book Resources
