Image Comics announced a new maxiseries from writer and RPG creator Marco B. Bucci (Magna Veritas, Memento Mori) and artist Jacopo Camagni (X-Men Blue, Deadpool The Duck) on Wednesday. Bucci and Camagni will team up this October for Nomen Omen, described as “a tale filled with witchcraft and secrets that will rewire the rules of urban fantasy.”
Nomen Omen will feature 15 issues, with alternative covers by Olivier Coipel and Becky Cloonan. The series follows Becky Kumar, a geeky 20 year-old from New York City who crosses the veil between our world and the beyond; in the process, she learns that no matter how fast you run, the past will always catch up.
“This is not a comic-book, this is a ritual,” Bucci said in a statement. “It’s a story no one can protect you from. But don’t be scared: there’s power in names and by reading our book you’ll get a glimpse of how it works.”
Camagni added, “Witchcraft, loss, and inclusiveness: these are the three cornerstones of our story. Magic belongs to all of us, even to those who reject it.”
Nomen Omen #1 hits shelves Oct. 2. Check out the cover art below.
