  • Lorna: Relic Wrangler Ordering NOW

    Been meaning to elucidate those ordering from Previews (like, this week) that a fun book they might want in on is coming soon from Image, Micah Harris and Loston Wallace’s LORNA: RELIC WRANGLER.
    Go see
    these
    boss
    pages!

    And here’s some of the lowdown on the kind of adventure you’ll find within:

    Fun fact: Washington D.C.’s occult architecture was configured to roll out the red carpet for an extra-dimensional Dark Lord. And only one woman can rescue mankind from certain doom!

    In March, Image Comics will tell the tale of mankind’s savior in LORNA, RELIC WRANGLER, a one-shot adventure written by Micah S. Harris (HEAVEN’S WAR) and illustrated by Loston Wallace (Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Batman Animated Series), Michael Youngblood, and Olli Hihnala. Eisner-award winning artist Darwyn Cooke (DC: The New Frontier, Richard Stark’s Parker) provides the gorgeous cover, while Dean Yeagle supplies a pin-up worthy variant cover.

    “Lorna’s passions were never those of your typical southern belle,” Harris says. “Now, from her trailer park HQ, she tracks the uncanny on a global scale.”

    “Lorna is Mary Ann and Ginger combined with a mint julep twist of Lara Croft,” Wallace adds. “Sexy, funny, and devilishly smart, Lorna fearlessly faces down supernatural dangers wearing cut-off jeans shorts. What’s not to like?!”

    To defeat a nefarious evil entity, Lorna, Relic Wrangler, must pilfer a mysterious artifact from a Memorial in the heart of our nation’s capitol. What she doesn’t know is that she’s offering herself up as a sacrificial party favor in the process! Lorna also has to face down her high school nemesis — now a cat-suited villainess — in a girl fight for the ages!

    I’d buy pretty much anything with a Darwyn Cooke cover but this book actually looks really good on its own. Count me in.
