We Have Demons with Greg Capullo is one of the series announced. Others involved include Rafael Albuquerque, Francesco Francavilla, Jamal Igle, Jock, Tula Lotay, Francis Manapul, and Dan Panosian. The comics will begin to be released in October.

Cora n’en croyait pas ses oreilles : Rafael l’avait demandée en mariage. Pourtant, elle l’a suivi jusqu’en Espagne uniquement parce qu’il voulait lui parler de son travail. Elle ne s’attendait certainement pas à ce que Rafael, un des gérants de l’hôtel où elle travaille, ne lui demande sa main… Mais cet homme, malgré sa demande, ne ressentait pas une once d’amour pour sa promise. Ce mariage n’était qu’une excuse pour faciliter l’acquisition d’un nouveau vignoble. Et lorsque Cora sut la vérité sur leur union, elle fut anéantie. « Quelle imbécile… », se disait-elle. « Comment un homme aussi beau et merveilleux pourrait-il aimer une femme aussi simple que moi… Alors, pourquoi moi… ? », ne cessait de penser la jeune femme.

“Eccentric neighbor, loyal friend and total innocent Elissa was exactly who Kingston Roper needed to get him out of a romantic bind. His sister-in-law’s intentions were anything but sisterly, and King had to produce a make-believe lover to run interference. Sweet Elissa fit the bill nicely. The act seemed foolproof…until seeing Elissa in his bed heated King’s blood and holding her filled him with unbearable longing. As the fantasy threatened to become reality, King was torn—did he desire a woman he could not touch? Would he touch a woman he dared not love?”
