Official Press Release
Dark Horse is pleased to announce that the acclaimed murder mystery series Rex Mundi will be coming from Image to Dark Horse this fall. Rex Mundi is a quest for the Holy Grail told as a tale of sin, murder, and redemption in an alternate-history Europe where magic is real and the Catholic Church never lost its grip on power.
"I first read Rex Mundi when the series creator Arvid Nelson sent me the collections last year," commented editor Scott Allie. "I devoured the stuff. Arvid has a massive plan for this series-he's taking his time telling an involved story in a way that you don't often see in American comics, and the payoff is going to be well worth the buildup."
"Switching publishers is a big change for me, it's huge," remarked Arvid Nelson. "Dark Horse has given me an incredible opportunity, and I want to take full advantage of it. I'm scared and excited all at the same time. I feel like a little schoolgirl."
Current Rex Mundi publisher Image will continue the series up through issue #18 with the first Dark Horse issue arriving in August. The last six issues of Image's run will be collected by Dark Horse and released in September, followed by reprints of the two previous Image collections. Rex Mundi features art by Juan Ferreyra and the first Dark Horse issue will feature a cover by JH Williams III. (Promethea)
