Hexware, new Cyperpunk miniseries from Image Comics, comes to store shelves later this year.
Official Image Comics/Hexware Press Release
PORTLAND, Ore. 09/15/2022 — Acclaimed creator Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Revival, Nightwing, Superman vs. Lobo) and rising star Zulema Scotto Lavina (Red Sonja, The Little Mermaid) join forces for the forthcoming Hexware. This futuristic six issue miniseries is set to launch in December from Image Comics, in cooperation with the Italian media company and creative atelier Arancia Studio—house of Mirka Andolfo’s bestselling Image titles, other international books, and IP.
Hexware is a thrilling new story—with an anime flair—where Cyberpunk 2077 gets drenched in the supernatural and goes full-throttle Devil May Cry.
In a corporate-ruled world where class inequality is greater than ever, a desperate, lonely populace is drawn to neo-spiritualism and hedge magic. When her teenage daughter is murdered, the Marks family is left asking the gods what they did to deserve this. But their android maid, Which-Where, has a different approach. Perhaps if she asked the Devil…
“This is an idea that’s been burning in my head for a while,” said Seeley. “Working with Arancia Studios and Zulema allowed it to jump onto the page, and take on all kinds of new influences like horror manga and sci-fi anime. Hexware is part cyberpunk, part fantasy, and all about love, loss, and dark deals. Pull up a spell book and get your cyber-pagan on.”
Lavina added: “A fascinating sci-fi world—soaked with just the right amount of witchcraft vibes—this is the journey of an android, through life and death. Working with Tim Seeley is a dream come true for me and I believe the readers will like where we are going with the story!”
Hexware #1 will be available on Wednesday, December 7 at comic book shops, with a cover illustrated by Lavina, a variant cover illustrated by Seeley, and a special variant cover from fan-favorite artist Mirka Andolfo.
Hexware #1 will also be available and across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play:
- Cover A Lavina – OCT220021
- Cover B Seeley – OCT220022
- Cover C Andolfo – OCT220023
