Image Comics has revealed that they’ll publish The Sword creator Jonathan Luna’s next project, The Knight and the Lady of Play, in November.
The one-shot follows a knight returning home after fighting a war against demons — but his trip is cut short when he encounters a mysterious woman.
“I’m excited, not only to release my first work of dark fantasy, but also to create it, drawing on paper again. These are my first non-digital comic-book drawings since The Sword,” said Luna. “Also, I will be using just graphite—not ink. Of all my books, this will look the most different.”
Here’s the full description:
Set after a war with demons, The Knight and the Lady of Play follows knight Signore Vincenzo as he travels home to his wife in Italy. In a swamp, he comes across a mysteriously hypnotic woman, Motta, who tempts him to stay with her.
“Working with Jonathan and watching him develop as an artist and a storyteller over the last 20 years has been a real pleasure,” said Image Publisher Eric Stephenson. “And the one-shots he’s been releasing over the course of this year have been a lot of fun, but this latest effort took me by surprise—just the best kind of progression from his previous work and something that makes me excited to consider what his next full-length project will look like!”
Look for it in stores Nov. 2.
