This September, DC Comics takes a trip back to the Medieval Ages with DEMON KNIGHTS. Featuring demons, witches, sorcery and plenty of dark magic, DEMON KNIGHTS plants the seeds for the siege that will reverberate through the present-day DC Universe. One of the many exciting things about DC Comics-The New 52 is the opportunity for new characters to be introduced. In DEMON KNIGHTS, one such character is The Horsewoman. But who is this mysterious new woman and what will her role in the series be? “The Horsewoman is one of the seven Demon Knights, flung together by a desperate battle,” said series writer Paul Cornell. “She's a mysterious rider who tries to stay apart, on a lonely journey across Medieval Europe. She can ride, but she can't walk, supported in her saddle by magic and invention. She has an absolute affinity for all horses, and she's the greatest archer in history. She tries hard not to care, but always ends up helping those who need her. And the little village Etrigan's reluctant team end up defending from enormous odds is going to need her now.” DEMON KNIGHTS #1, by Paul Cornell, Diogenes Neves and Oclair Albert, rides into stores on September 14th.
