Another horror book coming from Dark Horse in the Fall is Tim Seeley and Mike Norton’s “The Occultist” (see the rest of Dark Horse’s 2013 horror lineup here). The book is being described as “Harry Potter meets Trainspotting”, which is as bizarre a mashup I’ve ever heard. The series is set to follow a man named Rob who is irrevocably bound to a magical sword and book of spells. Rob has to learn how to control his new partners before the evil witch doctor steals them for his own bidding.

Beyond the break you can get an advance look inside the ish and all the details. Read on for the skinny…
Earlier this year we were raving about “HACK/SLASH” scribe Tim Seeley’s one-shot, “THE OCCULTIST”, which wound up becoming one of fellow Graphic Content columnist Johnny_Trouble’s favorite books of the year thus far.

Below you can get all the details, and if you make the jump you can check out the second cover for the ish…

A few weeks ago, Graphic Content contributor Johnny_Trouble conducted a very detailed interview with “HACK/SLASH” creator Tim Seeley regarding a little known one-shot project on the way from Dark Horse Comics entitled “THE OCCULTIST” (which can be read here) and now today we have a very special first look inside the book with a 6 page preview! Read on for the skinny!
Tim Seeley, the mastermind behind “Hack/Slash” has teamed up with Dark Horse Comics to bring us the one-shot “The Occultist” which will be available December 15th of this year. “The Occultist” was written by Seeley, created by Mike Richardson, with illustrations by Victor Drujiniu, art by Andrew Dalhouse, character design by Guy Davis, and ink by Jason Gorder. The one-shot was officially announced during a panel at the last San Diego Comic-Con. This being said, I was of course excited not only to get my grubby little hands on a preview of it, but to get the opportunity to interview Seeley as well. Needless to say, thanks to the good people at Dark Horse Comics I succeeded, and I present you with an inside look at “The Occultist”.
