Digital Webbing and Alias Enterprises will be bringing forth the supernatural thriller SOULCATCHER, a one-shot graphic novel written by SWORD OF DRACULA creator Jason Henderson with art by Lou Manna (PHANTOM) and Terry Pallot (SWORD OF DRACULA), with colors by Leslie Ann Barkley (SYLVIA FAUST).

SOULCATCHER tells the story of a young, smart and sexy widow (Roma Canto) who comes to New Orleans, the “the most haunted city in America,” in search of the ghost of her dead husband. Instead she discovers she has the power to absorb the abilities of the recently dead—and uncovers a mystery the spirit world will kill to protect. Roma Canto meets Chris Lockman, the latest in a long line of “Witchfinders,” guardians since ancient times. Chris can see the ghosts around every corner—and he begins to guide Roma through the city when Chris realizes the ghosts are gunning for her.

Preview critical responses were very positive- - website “Comic Fanatic” called SOULCATCHER’s first chapter  “one creepy, extremely well written ghost story that will leave you begging for more…if your heart can take it!" while the site “Broken Frontier” called it  “a stylish, creepy story... a brilliant book... enriched by the history of the Most Haunted City in America. SOULCATCHER easily rivals J. Michael Straczynski's MIDNIGHT NATION and Frank Miller's SIN CITY.”

Henderson spent time as a travel writer in New Orleans, gathering authentic ghost stories to put into the tale. “That was the challenge we set for the team—the book had to look right and feel right. For instance, the house where the “Crab Lady,” the ghost who hides in an attic and keeps track of the goings-on of the spirit world, is a real house. The coffee-shops Roma and Chris visit and the ghost in the tea shop and streets are real. I wanted to show the real New Orleans, to give a real tour of the Most Haunted City in America.”

The book marks yet another lead female protagonist for Henderson, whose most recent series have included SWORD OF DRACULA, which has been optioned for media and game development and features female commando Ronnie Van Helsing, SYLVIA FAUST, a romantic comedy about a young witch in Greenwich Village, and STRANGE MAGIC, a Marvel Comic about the mysterious Sofia Strange. “My goal is to eventually team them all up,” said Henderson.

SOULCATCHER is being published through Alias Comics and is available through Diamond Distributors, Order Code FEB052490.
