Exorcists Never Die: Differences Are Set Aside for the Sake of Innocent Souls in New Series From Mad Cave
Mad Cave Studios has announced an upcoming mini-series titled Exorcists Never Die. The series sees two of the top exorcists attempting to put their differences aside after a break-up years ago set them apart. With a deadly mission ahead and thousands of souls at stake, they will have to find common ground or perish. The series is written by Steve Orlando with art by Sebastian Piriz, and letters by Carlos M. Mangual. Artist Paul Fry joins the team to provide variant cover art.
Mad Cave’s description of the series reads:
“Syd Miller and Ellen Blair are the world’s two premiere combat exorcists—the only problem? After a nuclear break up years ago, they can’t stand each other. But when the biggest soul auction in history kicks off beneath Los Angeles, Syd and Ellen have no choice but to come together to raid the HELLSCRAPER, an infernal tower going straight down into the Earth. With thousands of souls on the line, Syd and Ellen must fight their way to the bottom, or die trying.”
Orlando shares that the creative team plans to give readers action but also will explore much more, saying:
“We’re giving you action to the sky in this book, but it’s important to me for much more than that. Here’s a vivid exploration of biblical mythology, of what it means to fight a war, or even merely survive, in a world where only one side’s playing by the rules.
It’s about the power of belief—not in the unknowable, but the knowable, the one fighting beside you. And in that unjust environment, we have two masters of their craft on the streets and catastrophes in the sheets, ex-lovers who’ve got no choice but to overcome the forces that drove them apart if they want to survive the most dangerous exorcism to ever hit the earthly plane.”
Piriz chimed in praising Orlando and the story they will deliver, saying:
“First of all, Steve Orlando is writing; He’s one of the most talented and important writers in comics, so yeah, no big deal. But then I read the scripts and its a crazy story that mixes terror with, somehow, Shonen and it just works so well! Every page is a cool surprise and I’m having a blast working on it. So, even if you haven’t read anything by Steve before, this story is a must read. I mean, Ninja priests exercising demons with super sentai moves… This is the kind of book that made me love comics so much.”
Exorcists Never Die #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shops on April 14, 2023.
