Image and Top Cow have announced that writer Tini Howard and artist Ryan Cady are to launch an all-new series this March for Magdalena, the popular Top Cow superheroine known for her early appearances in The Darkness and Witchblade.
MAGDALENA follows “The Magdalena” a powerful individual who has always defended the world from demonic evil, empowered by the blood of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene in her veins. But when a brush with death leaves her gravely wounded, Patience decides to seek out the next in the bloodline and train her replacement. The replacement, meanwhile, is having enough trouble with finding her purpose even without the whole holy-warrior gig.
Magdalena #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, March 22nd.
