The Harcourt Legacy, an Occult Family Drama this November
Occultist Edward Harcourt is dying, and he wants to pass along his secrets. His intended heir is his grandniece Violet, but that’s a problem for his sister Edwina, who wants to keep his legacy for herself. As for Violet, all she wants is some harmony in her troubled family life. But when presented with the idea of a magical solution to all her problems, can Violet focus on what’s real, or will she allow herself to get lost in what might be nothing more than a flight of fancy?
The Harcourt Legacy is an occult-tinged family drama for fans of The Wicked and the Divine, The Magicians, Morning Glories, or Dead Like Me. It’s a three-issue story with a beginning middle, and end, that provides a self-contained experience. And it has a real emotional core and emphasizes character over spectacle.
It’s also the only book on the shelf in November written by Brendan Cahill and illustrated by Jason Federhenn and Josh Burcham, and it’s worth it just for the beauty, care, and rock-solid storytelling the art team brings to it.
But be warned! The Harcourt Legacy contains teen snark, heavy rock music, unanswered phone calls, a little weed smoking, and some swears.
The Harcourt Legacy #1 will be available in a comic book store near you on November 8.
