A supernatural thriller hailed as “the new BUFFY.” Horror has a new name, and it is HEXED.
Horror has a new name, and it is HEXED. Collected in one volume for the first time, it's the series that took the comics world by strom and introduced readers to the next great supernatural heroine-Luci Jennifer Inagcio Das Neves or Lucifer for short.
The say there is no honor among thieves-put that thief in the occult underground and you have a whole different kind of nasty. When Lucifer takes a new job, more than the macabre underbelly of the city is exposed, but also the secret that could jeopardize her whole existence. And so begins the greatest supernatural thrill-ride that will have you cursing Lucifer's name until the last page.
Michael Alan Nelson is the author of the critically acclaimed comic HEXED as well as FALL OF CTHULHU from BOOM! Studios. He is a winner of the 2004 New Times 55 Fiction contest for his short-short “The Conspirators” and is currently working on several projects for BOOM! Studios including the smash-hit series THE CALLING. He lives in Los Angeles. Hailing from Spain, HEXED introduced Emma Rios to the American comics scene. Her vibrant style immediately caught the attention of Marvel Comics and she has worked on fan-favorite title RUNAWAYS. Critically acclaimed colorist Cris Peter has worked in the industry since 2003, working with everyone from DC Comics on BATMAN & SUPERMAN, to Image Comics on FEAR AGENT. She currently lives in São Paulo, Brazil.From School Library Journal :
Grade 10 Up Lucifer is many things: she is a thief, she has supernatural abilities, she is fiercely loyal, and she has a strong sense of right and wrong. She is also an attractive young woman with luminous amber eyes. Her real name is Luci Jennifer Inacio Das Neves. For the most part she steals wondrous items for money and for the thrill of the chase, but sometimes she finds herself working for other motives. When an evil man named Dietrich wants her to steal a powerful object called the carasinth for him, he threatens to kill her employer and friend Val if she does not comply. What follows is a fast-paced and astounding story with plenty of fight scenes, gunplay, explosions, otherworldly adventures, and blood. LOTS of blood. The creativity of the story is matched by Rios's breathtaking art and the astounding colors. For example, in order to find the carasinth, Lucifer has to go to the morgue, cut open the dead body of a 300-pound man, and enter Quandrin's lair through the door created by his corpse. The strange liquid world she enters is jaw-droppingly detailed, realized in amazing technicolor hues. Nelson created the character of Lucifer for his Fall of Cthulhu graphic-novel series (Boom!), but this is Lucifer's first stand-alone collection, and it isn't necessary to have read the other series to enjoy it. Hexed is sure to generate a whole new legion of fans for this amazing thief. Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
