The first arc of Clive Barker’s all-new comics creation comes to a shocking climax!

In the wake of the fallout from Wick’s first public appearance, people begin to choose sides…but only total allegiance will appease the Lord of Colors. Meanwhile, Tristan and Elspeth find roadblocks on their path for answers…

  • Chance

    This would actually be the second universe Clive has specifically developed for comics, the first being the Razorline comics he developed for Marvel back in 1993.

    Hopefully this one fares better.

    • Lonmonster

      If I recall correctly, he only invented the characters and did not write any of the books.

      • Chance

        Characters, concepts, and “detailed premises”. I guess we would first need to define “developed,” which I would figure is not restricted to just writing and encompasses the invention of the core mechanics.

        It’s kind of like how James Patterson gets credit for authoring books he hasn’t even written; they’re written off his extensive notes and trajectory.

        Small matter; this is something I look forward to.
