Set in the world of Songs for the Dead, The Necromancer’s Map features a brand new story from the same creative team as the first arc, writers Andrea Fort and Michael Christopher Heron and artist Sam Beck. Deron Bennett completes the team on letters.
Necromancer with a heart of gold Bethany and Elissar, her prone-to-brawling companion, are on a quest to find the Covenant, a sanctuary for Bethany’s otherwise reviled magic. Unfortunately, their map makes no sense, leading them to seek the help of a young wizard named Jonas, whose knowledge may unravel the map’s secrets. Along the way Bethany and Elissar discover a mysterious illness plaguing The Foggard temple, home to the ancient order of mages. To make matters worse, Bethany and Elissar are not on the best of terms following the recent and violent encounter at Boulder’s Envy.
“Songs for the Dead was a labor of love for us, and I’m so excited to be able to continue Bethany and Elissar’s journey in The Necromancer’s Map,” said Heron. “This is a perfect place for anyone new to the series to jump in, and for longstanding fans of the series, we promise answers to some of those burning questions! (but we’ll also add way more questions).”
Fort adds, “The Necromancer’s Map is a new beginning and a continuation. This is a part of the story I have really been looking forward to telling. Not only because there is so much of the world to explore, but we get to see a new side of both Bethany and Elissar as well.”
Look for issue #1 this August.
