DC Adds Last God #9 In September, Songs of Lost Children For October

DC Comics has announced that The Last God series which they probably overcommitted to considering how poorly it has performed so far compared to how much they have promoted it will see its ninth issue arrive in stores in September 23rd. This is a brand new solicitation, retro-added to current schedules. #7 is scheduled for 21st July and #8 for 25th August.

The Last God #9 by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Riccardo Federici, cover by Kai Carpenter

In this issue of the acclaimed DC Black Label series, the fires of cruelty burn hottest in the forges of the Abyssal Realm. In those treacherous caverns, Eyvindr and Valko face off against a horrific monster of incredible proportions and unyielding hunger. With Cyanthe and the rest of the fellowship separated from the two young heroes, survival will come at a great cost — one that not all of them will survive.

While the planned The Last God: Songs of Lost Children #1 for July will have all orders cancelled and be resolicited for October.

Set a decade after the infamous battle of the Black Stair, an incognito Queen Cyanthe and her handmaiden embark on a journey to the poverty-stricken villages outside Tyrgolad. When faced with stories of disappearing children and a real-life encounter with a great and ancient monster, Cyanthe realizes that tales of monsters lurking are anything but folklore, and must return to her warrior roots to slay another ghastly creature. Special guest writer Dan Watters (Lucifer, Coffin Bound) and artist Steve Beach (The Last God: Tales from the Book of Ages) join the world of the Last God for this tale from the Age of Tyrgolad.
