Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce that Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash) is bringing his rare mix of humor, horror, and heroes to the latest creation from company founder Mike Richardson!

The Occultist returns this fall, following its hugely successful one-shot released last year! 

When a mysterious book of powerful spells binds itself to him, the fact that Rob’s life has been falling apart doesn’t seem like such a big deal. What do his girlfriend leaving him or his mountain of debt matter when mystics and demons are overrunning the town in search of the book—and him? To survive, Rob must learn to control the book’s unpredictable magic, while his life slips even further out of control . . .

Now, while harnessing his new powers as the Occultist, college student Rob Bailey must defend himself and those around him from a series of hired hit mages with unique magical abilities and a serpentine demon known as the Swordbreaker, all determined to kill him and to possess the powerful spell book known as the Sword!

Cover art by Steve Morris and variant cover art by Jenny Frison!

The Occultist is a comic you should be checking out . . . If you want more of a magically fun and yet grounded character tale then put your money in to support this.”—Comic Book Resources
