Hexware: New Limited Series Delivers a Sci-Fi Supernatural World Drenched in Social Disparity
Image Comics has announced a new limited series titled Hexware. The brand-new six-issue miniseries will take readers into a world featuring a story of social disparity in a futuristic corporate-ruled world. The Marks family suffers a great loss with the death of their daughter and while they look to the gods for answers, their android maid takes a more occult approach to get answers.
The series is written by Tim Seeley with art by Zulema Scotto Lavina with Image creating the series in cooperation with Arancia Studio.
Image Comics‘ description of Hexware reads:
“In a corporate-ruled world where class inequality is greater than ever, a desperate, lonely populace is drawn to neo-spiritualism and hedge magic. When her teenage daughter is murdered, the Marks family is left asking the gods what they did to deserve this. But their android maid, Which-Where, has a different approach. Perhaps if she asked the Devil…”
Seeley shares that this is an idea that has been on his mind for some time, saying:
“This is an idea that’s been burning in my head for a while. Working with Arancia Studios and Zulema allowed it to jump onto the page, and take on all kinds of new influences like horror manga and sci-fi anime. Hexware is part cyberpunk, part fantasy, and all about love, loss, and dark deals. Pull up a spell book and get your cyber-pagan on.”
Lavina also shares that this world is a fascinating sci-fi world with witchcraft vibes, saying:
“A fascinating sci-fi world—soaked with just the right amount of witchcraft vibes—this is the journey of an android, through life and death. Working with Tim Seeley is a dream come true for me and I believe the readers will like where we are going with the story!”
Hexware #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on December 7th, 2022. Check out the preview below:
