One of the hot genres in streaming and comics today seem to be witchcraft. Netflix released several shows based on witchcraft and now BOOM! Studios prepares to release a new comic based on witchcraft – An Unkindness of Ravens. The press release from the studio reads as follows:
Not all the witches burned during the Salem Witch Trials—and the ones that survived did so together, protecting the ancient secrets entrusted to them for generations. They call themselves the Ravens.
Wilma is the new girl in school, and she plans to go completely unnoticed—except that she bears an eerie resemblance to the Raven member Waverly, who just went missing. The truth behind Waverly’s disappearance will put the entire coven in danger—and Wilma will have to rely on power she never knew she had if she wants to save her new friends.BOOM! Studios
An Unkindness of Ravens – On a Roll!
This five part series, due to drop on Sept 23rd, brings magic and intrigue to the forefront. The series comes from creator Dan Panosian (Slots), rising star artist Marianna Ignazzi, colorist Fabiana Mascolo, and letterer Mike Fiorentino. The art looks fantastic as you can check out below, but BOOM! Studios has been on a roll with its new releases recently. Titles such as Once and Future, Faithless, Seven Secrets and We only Find Them When They Are Dead flew off comic book shelves upon their releases. If you have any interest in tales of witches, or high school set dramas, you must check out this title.
This series promises to bring back a high school angst of series before it as well as magical and mystical turns as Wilma gets sucked into this hidden world of witchcraft. To be the new kid is one thing. To run across the path of the snobs, only to find out they are descended from the Salem witches would be a lot, but you can guarantee the fact she looks like one of the witches who recently went missing plays into the story quite heavily as well.
Run down to your local comic shop on Sept 23rd to check out An Unkindness of Ravens from BOOM! Studios.
