EXCLUSIVE: Marv Wolfman Returns to Raven!

EXCLUSIVE: Marv Wolfman Returns to Raven!

By Tim Beedle Friday, October 13th, 2017

Try not to get too emotional over this one. We don’t think Raven would approve.

Marv Wolfman, the legendary comic book writer who along with George Perez introduced us to the half-demon hero in the pages of NEW TEEN TITANS, is once again returning to her world with RAVEN: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS. A 12-issue miniseries illustrated by Pop Mhan, Daughter of Darkness is a follow-up to Wolfman’s earlier miniseries, RAVEN, which found the hero otherwise known as Rachel Roth settling in with her Aunt Alice and her family, getting used to attending high school and, since it’s Raven, battling a strange otherworldly adversary that was abducting teenagers all throughout town.

In Raven: Daughter of Darkness, Rachel will face another frightening supernatural threat, only this time, it’s one that’s very much grounded in reality. At the same time, she’ll also be dealing with some drama in her personal life as her mother returns and mixes things up with her Aunt Alice. (It’s going to get messy, guys. And when things get messy around Raven, giant frightening death demons tend to get unleashed in our world.)

But most intriguing of all is that Raven: Daughter of Darkness will also introduce another Marv Wolfman character to the world of Raven—Baron Winters. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the not-always-noble leader of Night Force, but Daughter of Darkness will bring him back as someone who will have to intercede on Raven’s behalf. But should she trust him?

You can check out the brilliant cover art by Yanick Paquette, along with the full solicitation below. Look for the first issue of Raven: Daughter of Darkness to arrive in comic shops on January 10, 2018.
