Arriving in the Direct Market on Halloween, Maestros, Vol. 1 collects the first seven issues of Steve Skroce’s dark fantasy series about a millennial from Orlando who inherits the throne of the Wizard King and the godlike powers that come with it.
Official PR follows and then a preview:
Steve Skroce (WE STAND ON GUARD, Wolverine, Amazing Spider-Man) will release MAESTROS, VOL. 1—collecting the first seven issues of his dark fantasy series—this October from Image Comics. Nominated for an Eisner Award in the Best New Series category, MAESTROS is richly layered and deeply irreverent.
The Maestro and his entire royal family have been murdered. Now, his banished son from Earth will inherit the Wizard King’s throne—along with a spell that turns its user into God. With enemies everywhere, will this Orlando-born millennial be able to keep his new magic kingdom?
MAESTROS, VOL. 1 TP (Diamond code: AUG180164, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0673-8) will be available in comic book stores on Wednesday, October 31st. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, September 17th.
