From Image:

Writer Rick Remender reteams with collaborators Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent) and Matt Hollingsworth (TOKYO GHOST, WYTCHES) to bring readers a modern fantasy series following Adam Osidis, a dying knight from a disgraced house, on a mission to rid his world of an insidious God who ensnared him in a Faustian deal.

"Jerome and I began working together at Image ten years ago on titles such as Strange Girl and Fear Agent so it's very fitting we return now to tell the tale of the Seven to Eternity. All those years ago we began discussing doing an epic fantasy tale at some point, should the planets ever align. A unique take on the familiar genre full of action, unexpected twists, totally unique characters and a villain who might end up stealing the show," said Remender. "It's taken us a decade to get it together, but the wait was worth it. During the past decade we've collaborated on numerous projects and fine-tuned our mighty nerd skills to a point where what we create here will eclipse our past collaborations. At least I know the art is Jerome's best to date. Everyone loves Jerome and Matt Hollingsworth, but once their powers were mixed into the art cauldron something new and terrifying was born, a new level of sequential science. Hyperbole be dammed, there will be no better looking comic book in the world of human peoples."

Gharils Sulm, The God of Whispers is a Machiavellian warlord who holds sway everywhere in the world of Zhal. He's spread an omnipresent paranoia to every corner of the kingdoms; one of his spies hides in every house, every family, every hall, spreading mistrust and fear.

Adam must choose between joining a hopeless band of magic users in their desperate bid to free their world of the evil God's burden or give in to the The God of Whispers' promises of salvation and safety.

The series is set to launch in the Fall of 2016.
