Exclusive: Tony Daniel’s Edenwood #3 variant cover revealed!

We have an exclusive debut of Tony Daniel‘s variant cover for Edenwood #3 being published by Image Comics. The buzz is already building and the series is sure to be a hit.

In Edenwood #3, Rion is put to the test in an environment surrounded by fear and deception. An old friend returns bearing gifts and a mission that could change the course of the war. Entering Edenwood and rescuing his friends from their dark paths is a non-negotiable before he accepts the suicidal mission from the Witch War Council.

Tony had this to say about the series.

I am so excited to return to the world of creator owned comics. First, having co-created NOCTERRA with Scott Snyder and now my latest and biggest endeavor by far, EDENWOOD.  

There’s been a lot of multiverse stories in comics. But a horror, fantasy comic about a multiverse war between demons and witches? That’s something entirely different. 

In EDENWOOD, the interdimensional war between demons and witches has spread to Earth. Twenty years ago, the Midwest was taken over by the demons. Now the demons rule what’s left, which is called Necronema, and they’re at war with Edenwood, the witchcraft-controlled land that acts as a barrier against the war zone and the rest of the United States. Within the magical woods of Edenwood lie many paths to different places, dimensions and times, paths created by witches to dispose of hapless demon soldiers.  Only the most skilled demon killers, bestowed with enchanted armor, can navigate the many, seemingly endless paths of Edenwood.  This series is very high concept—yet its characters remain relatable and grounded in reality—all while we have an epic, large-scale battleground of demonic tanks, floating battleships and demon soldiers pitted against witchcraft-infused weaponry and armored soldiers.

At the heart of the story is Rion Astor, a teenage street urchin who is lost in the magical forests of Edenwood, while searching for his missing girlfriend, Adelai. Summoned by the Witch War Council, Rion must assemble an elite team of demon hunters tasked with infiltrating Necronema with a list of targets to annihilate. The men and women he selects happen to all be the most famous and revered demon hunters of all time, dating back to the 1700s. But Rion has his sights set on a young and powerful witch being held prisoner deep within Necronema. 

Along the way Rion becomes the squire of one of the world’s greatest demon killers. Rion must find his teenage friends and battle demons if he is to find Adelai, and to stay alive long enough to become a great demon killer himself.  

The cover below features art by Daniel with color by Leonardo Paciarotti. Edenwood #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 25.

DSTLRY and Mirka Andolfo reveal Blasfamous

DSTLRY has announced Blasfamous, a new horror-comedy comic series launching this December from Harvey Award-winning writer and artist Mirka Andolfo

Spinning out of the 5-page story a “A Blessed Day” from DSTLRY’s debut release The Devil’s CutBlasfamous offers a biting, hilarious dissection of media idolation—asking the pivotal question: how many fans is your soul worth?

In a world where pop stars have ascended to divinity and the masses bow in veneration to a new generation of viral superstars, angels and demons revel in a spotlight that grants them unimaginable power. Clelia, the reigning queen of pop, finds her throne shaken by a newcomer radiating with enigmatic charm. As the public eye threatens to wander, Clelia and her demonic agent, Father Lev, are thrust into a battle for dominance on this exhilarating stage of music and mysticism. How far will they go to defend Clelia’s hot streak and unravel the mystery of this sensational threat? 

Mixing the sacred and profane, Andolfo effortlessly merges the mythological urban fantasy of American Gods with the sardonic wit of The Good Place in a new dark series set in the glittering world of pop music.

Blasfamous #1 features two open-order covers by creator Mirka Andolfo, with 1:10, 1:25, and 1:50 incentive variant covers to be revealed at a later date.
