Top Cow are releasing September Mourning Volume 1 on June 14th, written by Emily Lazar and Mariah McCourt, with art by Sumeyye Kesgin and cover art by Marc Silvestri.
September Mourning was created by Top Cow founder/artist Marc Silvestri and musician/singer Emily Lazar, and she’s a character who hails from the music world as much as comics. This volume collects a comic that originally appeared on Kickstarter for the direct market, and ties in with the band September Mourning’s upcoming US tour.
September Mourning are going to be performing acoustic shows and holding signings at comic shops along the way. Click here to find out more about September Mourning live this summer.
Here’s what Top Cow have to say about this character and her world:
September Mourning has no past that she can remember, only a strange and shadowy present filled with the voices of the dead. Turned into a unique hybrid by the former Reaper of the lonely, injured, and abused, September Mourning is the only human/reaper to exist. Tasked with reaping the souls of the “worthless” by her mysterious tattoo, September hides and protects them until she can help them realize the last thing they had left undone in life. Whether it’s aiding souls to expose abusers, find lost loves, or settle old debts, in each case September is guided by voice of the Skullfly, which only she can hear.
And here’s a look at the interior art on this volume:
September Mourning Volume 1 will arrive in shops on June 14th, 2017 and is currently listed in Previews with item code: APR170716.
