For years, our very own Jessica Chobot has hosted TV and online programs, in addition to a few acting gigs. Now Jessica is bringing her talents to a whole new arena–comics–later this year!
At this weekend’s AwesomeCon, Legendary Comics announced that Jessica and her co-writer Erika Lewis are collaborating with artist Claudia Aguirre on Firebrand: The Initiation of Natali Presano. Before they headed out to AwesomeCon, Jessica and Erika taped an exclusive Firebrand video for us, which answers a lot of burning questions about the series. And we’re not apologizing for that pun!
Here’s the official synopsis for Firebrand: The Initiation of Natali Presano:
“Natali Presano never fit into her father’s perfectly human world: politically ambitious, he turned his back on her just when she needed him most. Losing her mother to tragedy as a young child, Natali fled 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.”
Legendary Comics is tentatively planning to release Firebrand this fall, but an official date hasn’t been set yet. But you can bet that we’ll keep you up to speed on Jessica’s comic and show off the interior pages when they come in!
