After winning multiple awards for his work on The Simpsons comics for Bongo over the years, MAD Magazine contributor Ian Boothby is branching out to his own creator-owned property, ExorSisters, a new comic with artist Gisele Lagace. The new series launches in October from Image Comics.
“As a kid, I loved Scooby-Doo. That love for mysteries mixed with the supernatural then got me into shows like Buffy and Supernatural as an adult. If you liked those shows, you’ll love ExorSisters,” Lagace said in the press release. “It’s a universe full of fun and intriguing characters with many stories to tell.”
Here’s how the publisher describes the series: “Did you sign a deal with the Devil? Has your fiancé been dragged to Hell? Then Kate and Cate Harrow should be the first ones you call for timely soul retrieval at a reasonable rate! But why are these identical twins so different? Is there a darker secret? Readers will find out when they pick up ExorSisters this fall.”
“Gisele draws both the real and surreal so well I wanted to work with her on a story that mixed the two. Cate and Kate Harrow fight against outer and inner demons because when it comes to actual Hell on Earth that can often be family,” Boothby said.
