Tim Seeley, Freddie E. Williams II and Jeremy Colwell have a Bequest, and it’s coming from AfterShock next March.
“It’s the story of a band of adventures from a Dungeons & Dragons-style fantasy world who have been stationed on our world to do a very specific job — stop the black market trade of magic items for technology,” Seeley said. ““I love fantasy — I spent a good portion of my career drawing The Dark Elf adaptations by R.A. Salvatore — and I wanted to smash together the tropes of that genre with the world we live in today. Our ‘heroes’ are essentially thieves, as they steal treasure. How does a character like that play in modern America, a place teetering between ‘woke’ liberalism and ignorant conservatism?”
Seeley tweeted that two of the characters in the book are actually based on his own D&D characters, which is awesome:
“Tim and I really clicked when we worked together on Injustice vs. Masters of the Universe, so, even during that project I started asking him if he had some creator ideas that we might be able to flesh out together, and that’s how things got started,” Williams said.
