This September, THE POWER OF THE VALKYRIE will begin a four-issue miniseries, from the creators of “10^th Muse” and “The Legend of Isis”; writers Darren G. Davis and Chad Rebmann, and art by Marvel’s “Runaways” inker, Craig Yeung.
“This book has a deeper edge than the other books we create. It was the perfect vehicle for Arcana to publish,” said writer, Davis. “I have created a bunch of characters from world legends and mythology, and I really wanted to do something with the Norse myths this time”.
Here’s how the studio describes the issue:
THE POWER OF THE VALKYRIE #1
Written by Darren G. Davis & __Chad__ Rebmann, pencils by Craig Yeung, and special incentive cover by artist, Nadir Balan_
As an Elysian war rages onward and spills upon the Earth, an ethereal gift, bequeathed to a mortal none the less, is all that stands between the dark minions of Hell and their malignant conquest of the Heavens. Suzanne Bancroft is a single nurse at a small Colorado hospital, her life is tight knit, friends are few and her craving for adventure is all but nonexistent. However she will soon hold the key to both heaven and hell in the palm of her trembling unsure hands...yet will she accept it.
22-pages, full-color, four-part limited bi-monthly series -- $2.95_
