Resembling certain aspects of HBO's dark fantasy series Game of Thrones and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, a new historical adventure title from Skybound Entertainment and Image Comics is set to strike fear into the hearts of non-believers when it arrives with its riveting premiere issue July 10.
Reaver is written by Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, Dead Body Road), with art courtesy of Rebekah Isaacs (Buffy: One Girl in All the World) and color duties assigned to Alex Guimarães. Building toward its anticipated release, SYFY WIRE has an exclusive first look at the interior art and special character covers for the first six issues.
Its rousing sword-and-sorcery storyline is centered on the fictional continent of Madaras, where hard-working settlers are promised a new start … however, 200 years after its initial discovery, a brutal war rages on. Deep within this violence-tainted, untamed land, a new and menacing darkness builds at the Anvil; it must be halted at all costs.
Casting an ambitious plan, the Imperials assemble six of their most malevolent and hated prisoners: a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer, his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil’s Son. This motley crew of crusaders nicknamed Hell's Half-Dozen are the only ones who can postpone the inevitable and stop the end of the new world.
