"I've said it before, I'll say it again: Hexed is one of my favorite titles we've ever published," said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. "This second print has all of us very happy and incredibly thankful. Diving back into Luci's story with Mike, and the astonishingly talented Dan Mora, has been everything we hoped it would be. And having Emma Rios return to provide the stunning covers was the icing on the cake."
Luci Jennifer Inacio Das Neves, better known as "Lucifer," first appeared in Fall of Cthulhu Vol. 3: The Gray Man and the 2008 Hexed limited series and is a quick-witted mash-up of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lara Croft. This new series dives back into the depths of the Aether with the supernatural thief-for-hire as she takes on the dark denizens of the netherworld in search of wondrous objects for her mentor/mother figure, Val Brisendine. In addition, artist Emma Rios (Pretty Deadly, Strange), who debuted in American comics on the first Hexed series, returns to illustrate covers.
