Vampirella’s friend (and foe) is getting a spin-off all their own.
Nyx, from writer Christos Gage, artist Marc Borstel, colorist Jordi Escuin, and letterer Taylor Esposito, focuses in on the “centuries old daughter of a human and the mad god Chaos.” Their human qualities are coming to the fore, but they still must transform into a demon and feed on the life force of living beings to survive. And if struggling with that internal conflict isn’t enough, Chaos attempts to re-enter their life. Oh, and they cross paths with Vampirella again, setting up the possibility for friendship, further enmity, and “something even stranger.”
“Are they doing good things for bad reasons? Are they fighting to overcome their inherent nature? Are they not sure? If handled properly, I think readers can relate to someone who makes mistakes or bad decisions more than they can someone who always gets it right,” Gage said in a statement. Besides featuring Nix, Chaos, and Vampirella, the series will also introduce a new character with a “surprising link to Vampi’s past.”
The first issue will be supported with covers from Lucio Parrillo, Rose Besch, Fernando Dagnino, and Greebo Vigonte.
Nyx #1 is due for release in November.
