Finally Mystic

It all started with this rumor.
Cover by Amanda Conner
Now, after all these months I can finally go public on this: Mystic, the book I've been working since January will hit the stores in August, crazy, isn't it?
G. Willow Wilson writes it and the ususal suspects, Álvaro López at the inks and Nathan Fairbairn coloring share the joy of working on this, all under Jeanine Schaeffer editing.

Press release:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Mystic #1, from writer G. Willow Wilson and rising star penciller David López featuring the lush colors of artist Nathan Fairbairn . The fate of a world powered by the combination of mystic arts and technology rests in the hands of two seemingly ordinary orphan girls. The impoverished slums of Hyperion are no place for two young girls to grow up, but when the two dare to delve into the Noble Arts, their world is turned upside down! With new, incredible powers granted by the magical technology once forbidden to them, one girl will take up the massive burden of saving the world and the other will direct all her efforts to tearing it apart! Two girls are about to enter the fight of their lives filled with magic and mayhem and only one will come out on top! The line is drawn this August, only in Mystic #1!

It's been great (well, I just finished #03 out of four) to have almost twice the time I use to have to do a book so the art looks really like I wanted it to look
