We ran a brief mini-interview with Pablo Raimondi and Klaus Janson a short while ago about their upcoming Image Comics series Sacred Creatures, in which they talked about the series, how the page length will radically change from issue to issue, and whether or not a comic by two gay creators may affect the narrative. And now it's confirmed to be out in July. With covers from Pablo, Klaus and Frank.
In SACRED CREATURES, supernatural forces maintaining the fragile balance of power in this world begin to unravel. At the center of it all, readers meet Josh Miller, a young college grad and expecting father, caught in the middle of a vast conspiracy threatening to tear apart the foundations of humanity. As myth and reality collide, Josh finds himself on the frontline of a battle against an enemy dating back to the beginning of time itself.
"Years in the making, Sacred Creatures is the culmination of all the things I love about comics: amazing art, compelling characters, and a story that will make readers return month after month," said Janson. "I'm so proud of this series!"
Raimondi added: "I honestly can't believe Klaus has put up with me for this long. It must be 'cause the book is really freaking good."
The first issue will launch with 66 pages…
