Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — With the addition of the talented
Juan Ferreyra on art duties, Arvid Nelson’s REX MUNDI #16 flew off
the shelves, with Diamond Comics selling out the current issue of the
critically acclaimed series in less than a week!
“Well this certainly is a wonderful surprise! When I started doing
the art on REX MUNDI, I was more than happy to be working on a
wonderful story by Arvid and giving new life to the characters he
created, so selling out in less than a week just gives me a lot of
energy to keep drawing this book,” said Ferreyra. “Doing the art for
Rex Mundi is so refreshing, is a beautiful book and I can do stuff
that might not work in other books, I feel very comfortable where I am”
Nelson added, “Having Juan on board is a dream come true. There
couldn’t be a better time for readers to get on board, too – REX
MUNDI has never looked so good, and the story’s about to undergo a
REX MUNDI is a quest for the Holy Grail told as a murder mystery.
It’s set in an alternate-history Paris where magic is real and the
Catholic Church never lost its grip on power. Doctor Julien Sauniere
investigates the theft of a medieval scroll from a Paris church. He
stumbles onto a series of horrific ritual murders and an ancient
secret society somehow connected to the mysterious scroll.
“We’re just about halfway through, and things will be different from
here on out. The story will maintain the same brooding intensity, but
it’s going to be more fast-paced, more kinetic,” Nelson said.
REX MUNDI #17 (JAN061815) ships in March, and then following that,
the May-shipping REX MUNDI #18 features a cover by superstar artist
HUMBERTO RAMOS (Revelations, Spider-Man).
“What can I say? Humberto’s cover is absolutely beautiful! I mean,
it’s a work of art,” Nelson enthused. “I’ve been a fan of his for a
long time, his artwork is refreshing and simple, but it’s got a
subtle character to it.”
There are currently two collections available – REX MUNDI, VOL. 1:
THE GUARDIAN OF THE TEMPLE (NOV031267) and REX MUNDI, VOL. 2: THE
RIVER UNDERGROUND TP (JAN051614). The series ships bi-monthly through
