John Barrowman Announces CURSED from Legendary Comics (Exclusive)

I can’t think of anything John Barrowman can’t do. He sings, he dances, he is an integral figure in both DC Comics TV continuity and Doctor Who continuity, and he also finds time to write amazing stories for comic books. On Saturday during the Legendary Comics panel at Awesome Con in Washington, DC, a brand new Barrowman project was announced, which sounds like yet another in a long line of creative titles perfectly suited to his sensibilities. Cursed will bring folklore, legend, and modern day anti-heroics together, in an ongoing series along with his sister and writing partner Carole Barrowman and Firebrand writer Erika Lewis.

The story of Cursed will follow Charlie Stewart, a successful lawyer with a family, house, the whole nine years. Until his 40th birthday, however; that’s when he suddenly falls victim to a centuries-old family curse, dating back to his distant ancestor, Bonnie Prince Charlie, who angered the sisters of the Celtic god of war. Every decision Charlie makes, every relationship he has, every choice he’s given is doomed to fail spectacularly, no matter what he does. So he must travel to Scotland and get caught up in the petty squabbles of the gods in order to set his life back on track, and maybe learn not to be a jerk in the process. “Humbling,” they call it.

“We’ve always wanted to write a story that pulls together our love of history, our Scottish heritage, and our love of sci-fi and the supernatural. Mix these all together and Cursed was born,” said John Barrowman.

The art team will be announced at a later date, and the actual date of release has not be set either, but you can bet we’ll let you know more details as soon as we know them.
