Official Press Release
From Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos, the best-selling creative team behind Marvel's Spectacular Spider-Man, comes a sophisticated murder mystery set in the unlikeliest of places-The Vatican.
Charlie Northern may be one of the best detectives in Scotland Yard but that doesn't keep him from enjoying a night off curled up with a good book of conspiracy theories and a full pack of cigarettes. That is, until an old friend shows up at his door with the news that a high-ranking Vatican official and probable successor to the Pope has mysteriously died. Now, Northern must travel to Rome and seek out the facts in a place legendary for keeping its secrets. There are forces at work in The Holy See that want Northern to fail-forces darker and more ancient than any in his favorite dime-store paperbacks.
"Revelations is a labor of love. It's a story quite a few years in the making and it is quite honestly one of my favorite books I have ever worked on," commented series writer Paul Jenkins. "I hope you'll see that for every twist there is a turn, that nothing is quite what it seems and I hope you'll agree that the character of Charlie Northern leaps off the page. If you want to know the truth behind the darkest secret of the Catholic Church, if you want to learn new and creative ways to swear at cigarettes, please join us."
Jenkins continued, "Working with Humberto on this has been a revelation in and of itself - I've had the privilege to see the guy's art on a monthly basis for a couple of years. I never imagined I would see anything like this. He's a good lad, grade one. Check it out because it is vastly different from anything else he has done and it's bloody amazing! Like I said, nothing is quite what it seems. Unless you are God, in which case it's all completely bleeding obvious."
Revelations is a six-issue miniseries featuring top-notch writing by Paul Jenkins with stunning art by Humberto Ramos. Issue #1 arrives on sale August 31, with a retail price of $2.99.
