Coming In April: Netherworld

Following on from last weeks 'We Are All Lost' teasers from Top Cow comes news of a new limited series starting in April Netherworld.

Described as "the next evolution of the supernatural noir" Netherworld, which has been developed by Top Cow in collaboration with Heroes and Villains Entertainment, comes to us with an impressive team: written by Bryan Edward Hill and Rob Levin (Pilot Season: 7 Days From Hell, Broken Trinity: Pandora's Box) with art from Tony Shasteen and colourist JD Mettler (Witchblade: Annual, Stephen King's Talisman).

I was aleady intrigued by this new title and I'm even more so now having read the synopsis contained within the Top Cow press release:

Issue #1 reveals Ray, a former cop turned private eye and junkie, haunted by his past in a city with no sun and no hope. In this city, “we are all lost.” A beautiful woman and a slick criminal both offer him the same job: Find a girl named Madeline and bring her to them. Ray doesn't want the job, but he can't just leave this girl in the middle. Thrust into the city's twisted underbelly, Ray will unveil Netherworld's darkest secrets and come face-to-face with his past. Beware, Ray. If you seek the truth, you just might find it.

Likewise the preview art that's some far been released looks fantastic:

The first issue of this 5-issue limited series will be on sale on 13 April 2011.
