V.E. Schwab is leaping into the comedian e-book world.
The writer is about to create a brand new prequel sequence to her best-selling phenomenon Shades of Magic, EW can solely announce, and will probably be in graphic type. The primary e-book arrives in October.
Shades of Magic: The Metal Prince, from Tor Books and Titan Comics, options artwork by Andrea Olimpieri (Dishonored). The comedian will delve into the thrilling backstory of Kell’s adoptive father, prince Maxim Maresh, earlier than he grew to become the king of Crimson London. When Maresh is distributed to a violent and unmanageable port metropolis far-off to chop his navy enamel on strict orders from his father, King Nokil Maresh, he encounters an unruly band of troopers, a lawless panorama, and a newly returned pirate queen.
The comedian sequence is about earlier than the primary Shades of Magic novel, A Darker Shade of Magic, initially printed in 2015. The universe contains parallel variations of London, which vary from drab to mystical to brutal.
“I grew up wanting to tell stories, but never sure what form they would take. From short fiction to drawings, scripts to animation, I wanted to tell stories people could SEE, inside their heads or on a screen,” Schwab stated in an announcement. “Or, because it seems, on a web page. I’ve been an avid reader of comics for greater than a decade. I’m over the moon to say I’m formally changing into a author of them, too. I’m so grateful to the crew at Titan Comics for serving to me deliver this dream to life — and inform a brand new story from the Shades of Magic world. I can’t await readers to see Andrea Olimpieri’s beautiful illustrations, and meet Maxim Maresh earlier than he was king. That is the story of the Metal Prince, the Blood Coast, and the Pirate Queen.”
