Out Now: The Wicked + the Divine 1831, Cinema Purgatorio 5 and Mercury Heat 11

And we head back to the 19th century to explore our Romantic pantheon, with Stephanie Hans on art. This one was a lot of work to do, and was punishing for the whole team, but we’re very happy with how it came together. It is very goth, as is only right. I hope you enjoy it.

This is our first special. We’re planning to do more of them – probably one between every arc. We’ll probably collect them in their own trade either after the end of our run, or just before the end. In other words, this is going to be only in single issues for a very long time (as in, multiple years) As such, those who are trade-followers may wish to make an exception for this. It’s a standalone issue and doesn’t spoil anything in the fourth trade, which is out in early October.

Worth nothing that this is slightly more expensive as well – $3.99 versus our usual $3.50. That’s because it’s slightly longer – we normally budget for 20 pages of actual new art per issue, and this one has 26. 

You can get it from your local comic shop, or digitally either from Comixology ordirect from Image. The actual Preview is here.
