Image Comics announced Hexware, a new six-issue series from Tim Seeley and Zulema Scotto Lavina. Described as Cyberpunk 2077 soaked in the supernatural and hard as the devil may cry with an anime twist, the series debuted on December 7.

“It’s been an idea that’s been burning in my head for a while,” Seeley said. “Working with Arancia Studios and Zulema has allowed him to jump on the page and take on all kinds of new influences like horror manga and sci-fi anime. Hexware is part cyberpunk, part fantasy and all about love, loss and dark affairs. Pull out a spellbook and cast your cyber-pagan.

So what Hexware on?

In a world ruled by corporations where class inequality is greater than ever, a desperate and lonely populace is drawn to neo-spiritualism and hedge magic. When her teenage daughter is murdered, the Marks family finds themselves asking the gods what they have done to deserve this. But their android servant, Which-Where, takes a different approach. Maybe if she asked the Devil…

Lavina added: “A fascinating sci-fi world, infused with just the right amount of sorcery vibe, is an android’s journey, through life and death. Working with Tim Seeley is a dream come true for me and I think readers will like where we are going with the story!

The series comes in cooperation with Italian media company and creative studio Arancia Studio, home of Mirka Andolfo’s best-selling image titles.
