Press Release

Image Comics has announced Hexware, a new six-issue series by Tim Seeley and Zulema Scotto Lavina. Described as Cyberpunk 2077 drenched in supernatural and going hard like Devil May Cry with an anime flair, the series debuted on December 7th.

“This is an idea that’s been burning in my head for a while,” said Seeley. “Working with Arancia Studios and Zulema allowed it to jump onto the page, and take on all kinds of new influences like horror manga and sci-fi anime. Hexware is part cyberpunk, part fantasy, and all about love, loss, and dark deals. Pull up a spell book and get your cyber-pagan on.”

So what’s Hexware about?

In a corporate-ruled world where class inequality is greater than ever, a desperate, lonely populace is drawn to neo-spiritualism and hedge magic. When her teenage daughter is murdered, the Marks family is left asking the gods what they did to deserve this. But their android maid, Which-Where, has a different approach. Perhaps if she asked the Devil…

Lavina added: “A fascinating sci-fi world—soaked with just the right amount of witchcraft vibes—this is the journey of an android, through life and death. Working with Tim Seeley is a dream come true for me and I believe the readers will like where we are going with the story!”

The series is coming in cooperation with the Italian media company and creative atelier Arancia Studio—house of Mirka Andolfo’s bestselling Image titles.

Check out the preview, which features covers by Andolfo, Seeley, and Lavina below.
