Slots creator Dan Panosian is teaming with artist Marianna Ignazzi for a five-issue miniseries involving high school kids, witchcraft and hidden secrets. The wonderfully titled An Unkindness of Ravens will kick off from BOOM! Studios in September.
“Revenge is a dish best served monthly. Add some magic, murder and mystery—and you’re in for a treat,” Panosian said. “An Unkindness of Ravens is the kindest gift you can give yourself this summer.”
Here’s how BOOM! describes the series:
Not all the witches burned during the Salem Witch Trials—and the ones that survived did so together, protecting the ancient secrets entrusted to them for generations. They call themselves the Ravens.
Wilma is the new girl in school, and she plans to go completely unnoticed—except that she bears an eerie resemblance to the Raven member Waverly, who just went missing. The truth behind Waverly’s disappearance will put the entire coven in danger—and Wilma will have to rely on power she never knew she had if she wants to save her new friends.
“I fell in love with the story right away and I was honored to be given the chance to illustrate it. This story is filled with magic and I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by its mysterious atmosphere,” said Ignazzi. “I cannot wait to bring these fantastic characters to life, and I’m very proud to be part of the An Unkindness of Ravens team!”
