The three part mini-series The Order of the Forge arrives with its first issue on April 29th from Dark Horse Comics, bringing us a strange tale of a supernaturally-charged young George Washington and friends, wielding a wicked looking axe. Written by Victor Gischler, with art by Tazio Bettin and cover art by the fabulous Juan Ferreyra, this is going to be an odd, punchy, and quite striking vignette that mind remind you a little of the popular novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
Before he fathered a nation, young George Washington forged his legend in blood! Imbued with the mystical powers of America's original inhabitants, George-along with his friends Ben Franklin and Paul Revere-must stop an evil governor who wishes to rule an empire!
And here's our preview of the supernatural roots of this historically-inspired mystical tale:
