Marada The She-Wolf will hit stores on November 12, 2013 in a new deluxe hardcover collection. This tale about a white-haired, blood-soaked mercenary swordswoman, who happens to be a descendant of Julius Caesar, is written by none other than Chris Claremont (The Uncanny X-Men; Excalibur; Captain Britain; Fantastic Four; Gen 13, Sovereign 7) with artwork by award winning artist John Bolton (Man-Bat; Shame: Pursuit; Books of Magic).
Marada, together with her magical companion, Princess Arianrhod, battle evil and unearthly terror as they travel across the Roman Empire. Artist John Bolton has worked on restoring the original artwork for this new hardcover collection of the series.
“I look through these pages and I’m reminded, most eloquently, just how gifted John Bolton is as an artist, how breathtakingly skilled he is at evoking character and event, how powerfully and also subtly he can present a scene,” – Chris Claremont.
Many know that during his 17 years as X-Men writer, Claremont co-created characters such as Rogue, Psylocke, Mystique, Emma Frost, Sabretooth, Gambit, and a host of other characters for the Marvel Universe. Much of the Claremont era X-Men tales are the source material for the upcoming films The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The collection will also be available to read day and date on the iPad, iPhone, Web, Android and Kindle Fire, exclusively through the comiXology app and comiXology.com.
