I'm at the Phoenix Comicon this weekend, yet I have some news coming out of Awesome Con in Washington DC. Legendary Comics has just announced a new title Jessica Chobot and Erika Lewis called Firebrand: The Initiation of Natali Presano. The book will feature art by Claudia Aguirre.
Natali Presano never fit into her father's perfectly human world: politically ambitious, he turned his back on her just when she needed him most. Losing her mother to tragedy as a young child, Natali fled the safety of home into the arms of her aunt Selena, the mysterious guardian of a magical order waging a centuries-old war for survival in the mountains of Spain.
Natali, now in her 20s, has followed in her aunt's footsteps, becoming a powerful but rebellious witch in her own right. Returning to Seattle, she finds herself caught between a cruel modern world and the ancient evil threatening to destroy it.
For those not familiar with the creative team. Chobot is the host of Nerdist News on Nerdist. Com, and host / creator of Bizzare States and Save Point podcasts. Lewis has written for television on series like Strong Medicine, La Femme Nikita, Mutant X and Attack of the Show. Aguirre was the artist on La Maison Bleue.
The new series will launch later this year.
