Reyn: Warden of Fate – A New Image Comic From Kel Symons And Nathan Stockman

dawn_reyn The Mercenary Sea launched from Image Comics this week. But already writer Kel Symons is talking about his next comic. Talking to Mightyville he let them know that he's writing a new series from Image Comics with Irish artist Nathan Stockman, colourist Paul Little and letterer Pat Brosseau, called Reyn: Warden of Fate.

Symons describes it saying,

it's a swords and sorcery story, set in a land like Middle Earth or the Hyborian Age, full of magic and monsters. Reyn, our hero, is a freelance swordsman, the last of an ancient order known as The Wardens, who've all but disappeared. Wardens would roam the untamed land, fighting evil and dangerous beasts. Reyn's a little unpolished, though – hardly an errant knight upholding the ideals of chivalry. He's a little rougher than that. He's also plagued by these ghostly visions of an angel [Dawn, above], sort of like Joan of Arc hearing voices. This angel gives him tasks to perform, which he hopes if he completes them, eventually the visions will go away. I sort of see him like Clint Eastwood's "Man with No Name" in the Dollars Trilogy. In fact, when Nate and I first talked about this with Image, we pitched it as "What if Frank Frazetta painted Spaghetti Westerns?" They dug it, and now we're off and running. With a little luck and clear schedules, maybe we'll start publishing that towards the end of the year.
