Hey Third Eye Faithful!
You’ve been LOVING the work of writer DONNY CATES on recent hits like THANOS WINS, and the new LOKI DOCTOR STRANGE series, as well as his incredible IMAGE COMICS creator-owned hits like REDNECK, GOD COUNTRY, and more, so we KNOW you’re gonna be pumped to hear about the fact that Donny is involved in one of the biggest things we’ve seen in a minute: DAMNATION!
Very much in the spirit of the beloved Marvel ANNIHILATION mini-events from the early 2000s, which helped shape the direction of the entire Marvel COSMIC-Verse; DAMNATION is set to take many of the under-used, and often forgotten characters of the MYSTICAL corner of Marvel Universe, and remind us just why they’re so darn cool!
In this 5-issue mini-series, DONNY CATES picks up the threads of SECRET EMPIRE’s aftermath where the city of Las Vegas was destroyed, and then subsequently raised by DOCTOR STRANGE.
When he raised the city up from the ashes – he brought MEPHISTO along with it, and now, all hell is breaking lose!
THANOS, DOCTOR STRANGE & GOD COUNTRY writer DONNY CATES gives you the PERFECT reintroduction to Marvel’s supernatural side!
In DAMNATION, the city of sin gets its biggest sinner yet.
The devilish villain takes the city for himself and sets his sights on the rest of the world. It’s going to take heroes from all over the Marvel Universe to defeat him, but there’s nothing simple about fighting the lord of Hell.
This is going to be a killer storyline, because hey: DONNY CATES CAN WRITE SOME GOOD BOOKS! And, on top of that – it’s crackling with that same kind of energy and excitement we had for ANNIHILATION, because it’s literally a blank slate of Marvel characters that just do not get enough play.
Obviously, DOCTOR STRANGE has been getting some spotlight for the last few years (because hey, that JASON AARON rule rule!), but when is the last time we got to party with Mephisto, Nightmare, the Son of Satan, Satana, and of course, you know there’s gonna be some Ghost Riders, and familiar fearless vampire killers possibly popping up too, right?
Get stoked, Third Eye Faithful, DAMNATION is gonna rule!
