CURSE WORDS CASTS ITS SPELLNew series from Soule and Browne set to launch in January 2017
Bestselling writer Charles Soule (Daredevil, Death of Wolverine, Star Wars)
and artist Ryan Browne (GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS) team up for an all-new
ongoing series CURSE WORDS, set to launch from Image Comics in January
the series, a wizard appears one day in New York City, claiming he's
here to protect the planet from dark magical forces bent on its
destruction. The world falls in love with Wizord and his slick sorcerous
ways - after all, we've never had a wizard before. Everything's great!
But it's not. Wizord is actually fleeing an extremely dark past, and
it's only a matter of time before that evil comes calling. CURSE WORDS
is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of shadows, light… and magic.
"Ryan Browne and I wanted to create a series where literally anything
could happen, and giving the story a magical framework lets us do that,”
said Soule. “Curse Words constantly surprises me
with what happens next, and I'm writing the thing. Ultimately, it's the
story of a man trying to be good in a world that wants him to be
bad—but it's also got a talking koala. That's Curse Words.
Deep, wrenching, relatable character beats mixed with some of the most
wonderful, strangest things you've ever seen in a comic. Even better,
it's all drawn by the Incredible Ryan Browne—so you know it's pretty."
Browne added: "Thank goodness for Charles' words. I would buy Him writing the phone book. I draw. But His words! So good."
CURSE WORDS is Lord of the Rings meets Breaking Bad. A
color-saturated, anything-goes dark fantasy romp about the coolest,
most charming evil wizard you've ever met in your life. It is, in a
