Advance Solicitation from Top Cow: Magdalena #1

Along with the trade paperback of The Darkness/Pitt my highlight from Top Cow's April 2010 solicitations must be Magdalena #1.

The star of the forthcoming feature film gets her own series!

The Magdalena has been the official protector and warrior of the Catholic Church for over two thousand years, sworn to defend the Faith with the Spear of Destiny against all manner of supernatural threats. However, Patience, the latest Magdalena, has seen through the hypocrisy of her masters and struck out on her own. When her old mentor comes to her with a mission to prevent Armageddon, will she be able to resist the call?

From writer Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and the art team of Pilot Season: Murderer, Nelson Blake II, Sal Regla, and Dave McCaig. Featuring covers by Ryan Sook (Wednesday Comics)!

After a couple of limited series and various guest appearances in titles including The Darkness and Witchblade I believe this will be the first ongoing Magdalena series.

Magdalena #1
Written by Ron Marz, art by Nelson Blake II, Sal Regla, and Dave McCaig with covers from Ryan Sook

Image/Top Cow solicitations for April 2010, and last summer interviewed Ron Marz about his plans for both Magdalena and Angelus.
