Riddle us this, Catwoman!

HEARTBEAT & FAITHLESS creator Maria Llovet delivers a stunning new read with EROS PSYCHE #1!

One of the most talented new superstars to hit comics in the last couple of years has been the incredible Maria Llovet, and we’ve loved her work on HEARTBEAT, FAITHLESS, and more!

Now, she’s got an all new series out, and it may be our favorite.

From the artist of the bestselling Faithless series…comes Eros/Psyche.  

La Rosa’s female boarding school is paradise for young girls…but only if you follow the rules. Because, if you disobey them, you can end up expelled, or even worse, dead. 

Sara and Silje are two students learning the rules of the school, which includes classes by day…and the casting of curses and spells by night.  A love develops between the two, which is tender, but threatens to break under the weight of the dark secret society within La Rosa.    

Acclaimed creator Maria Llovet (Faithless, Heartbeat, Loud) brings you a surreal, bewitching tale of love, magic, and tragedy in Eros/Psyche.

This new series presents fresh new visions of the Man of Steel in his two signature colors of red and blue! Around the world, everyone knows that when they see a red and blue streak in the sky, it’s not a bird…it’s not a plane…it’s Superman.

To start things off, Academy Award-winning writer of DC Future State: The Next Batman John Ridley joins artist Clayton Henry (Batman/Superman) to tell a story of Clark Kent as he confronts a villain who still haunts him, in a story that shows what Superman can mean to a whole country. Then, Brandon Easton (DC Future State’s “Mister Miracle”) and Steve Lieber (Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen) take readers to the streets of Metropolis to show how one hero can mean so much to an individual in pain.

Plus, writer/artist Wes Craig (Deadly Class) tells a tale of Superman’s early days and the man who inspired him to become the hero he is today! And Marguerite Bennett (DC Future State: Kara Zor-El, Superwoman) and Jill Thompson (The Sandman, Black Orchid) give us a tale of teenage Clark Kent, while Dan Watters and Dani, the team behind Coffin Bound, bring us an outlandish fable about what happens when all colors are stolen!
