Rafael Albuquerque and Rafael Scavone are teaming up again for Hidden Society, a new four-issue mini-series from Dark Horse Comics. The two had previously collaborated on Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald. This new series peeks behind the curtain to reveal a dark world.
There’s a world alongside our own. Hidden from ordinary eyes, it’s full of deities, demons, and danger. Magic wins out over science. Dark secrets lie in wait. Ulloo, the last wizard from the Hidden Society seeks help from a blind girl and her demon, a young magician, and a cursed bounty hunter in an effort to stop a group of nihilist warlocks from waking the Society’s greatest nemesis: A primeval force that if left unchecked will destroy all life on this planet.
Writer Rafael Scavone and Rafael Albuquerque say:
After working on a book with the enigmatic 19th century London as the background, we thought that setting our first creator-owned book in the past was a good choice. New York in the 1970s shined like a good starting point for a story about magic, with all the decadence and violence around it. In Hidden Society, we created a place – with a Scorsese flair – filled with mysteries and magic, where complex characters have to team up and become the heroes those times needed.
Hidden Society #1 is set for release on February 26th, 2020.
