Hold onto your pointy hats, because we’ve got a comics preview that will knock your striped socks off! As you may already know, Nerdist News‘ very own Jessica Chobot is releasing a comic called Firebrand: The Initiation of Natali Presano with her writing partner Erika Lewis, and today we have the first look at the initial THREE chapters!
Created and written by Chobot and Lewis—with artwork by Claudia Aguirre—Firebrand follows willful witch Natali Presano. Natali never fit into her father’s perfectly human world: politically ambitious, he turned his back on her just when she needed him most. Having lost her mother to tragedy as a young child, Natali flees the safety of home into the arms of her aunt Selena, the mysterious guardian of a magical order waging a centuries-old war for survival in the mountains of Spain. Natali, now in her 20s, has followed in her aunt’s footsteps, becoming a powerful but rebellious witch in her own right. Returning to Seattle, she finds herself caught between a cruel modern world and the ancient evil threatening to destroy it.
Meet Natali in a trailer for the comic below:
