Vertigo On-Going Voodoo Book: Dominique LaVeau: Voodoo Child

Vertigo announced a new ongoing series focusing on Voodoo starting in February 2012.



Vertigo's blog gave some additional details about the new Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child series coming out in February.  Here's what the blog had to say.


"We’re excited to announce that the team that brought you the short story "Case 21" in the Vertigo comic book anthology STRANGE ADVENTURES earlier this year, and the short story "Blink" published in this month’s Vertigo comic book anthology THE UNEXPECTED, are collaborating for the first time on an ongoing series to be published in February 2012.

DOMINIQUE LAVEAU: VOODOO CHILD is the story of Dominique Laveau, half-breed, outcast and heir to the Voodoo Queenship of New Orleans... if she can live long enough to claim her birthright. Written by Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, author of To a Young Jazz Musician, with Wynton Marsalis, and the memoir Gunshots in My Cook-Up, former executive producer of BET News & Docs, and former editor-in-chief of The Source magazine. Illustrated by legendary artist Denys Cowan, one of the founding members and artists of Milestone Media and original Static Shock artist, best known for his work on The Question with Denny O’Neil.

Lingering on the threshold between history and legend, the home of Mardi Gras and the birthplace of Jazz, New Orleans is also known as the most haunted city in America: a town of centuries-old ghosts and new spirits of those drowned by Katrina; where Loup Garous, Vampires and Voodoo Spirits make their home. Ruling over all of this are the powerful Voodoo Queens, whose influence stretches into politics, business and crime as they maintain the delicate equilibrium between the mortal and supernatural worlds. But that careful balance has been upset. The Queen has been murdered, and Tulane grad student Dominique Laveau is the No. 1 suspect and marked for death."

And now for some preview art.
