Chis Roberson is one of the DC Universe creators who we haven't seen anything of in the DC Relaunch. Well, he;s not letting himself be hit in the back by the door, he's creating a brand new series for IDW.
He's quoted by IDW as describing Memorial as "a kind of cross between Doctor Who and Sandman by way of Miyazaki. A comic about memory and magic, mythology and mystery."
IDW describe the series thus;
Memorial is the story of Em, a young woman who arrives at a hospital in Portland, Oregon with no memory of her past. A year later, she has managed to rebuild her life, finding a job and friends, when her existence is thrown into turmoil after she inherits a magical shop, the kind that appears in an alley one instant and disappears the next. Em finds herself drawn into a supernatural conflict between immortal beings representing the fundamental aspects of the universe itself. All of existence is at stake, and the only things standing in the way of total oblivion are Em, the magical shop, and a talking cat.
Roberson will talk about the series at the IDW San Diego Panel on Thursday from 3-4 in Room 9.
