Ted Naifeh’s series at Oni Press, Night’s Dominion, returns for its second season today with Series 2 issue #1 in shops. The mature-themed fantasy comic focuses on the city of Umber, controlled by a dark cult, and a “band of adventurers” who have previously defended the city from being “freed” by this cult. But what lies in store for the troubled city now left to its own devices?
Oni Press say:
The Cult of Uhlume is no more, and the city of Umber nurses its wounds, as do the reluctant heroes who saved it. Trauma and tragedy have left their mark on Emerane, the lowly barmaid. But when Asps target the city’s Alderman, as well as its champion, the Furie, she finds herself donning the mantle of the Night once again, and coming to their defense—whether she’s ready or not.
Here’s a closer look at the lovely artwork on the new arc of the series, set to draw you into its world of magic and adventure:
