Due for release on June 23, Rebellion's savage sword maiden Black Beth gets her own 48-page one-shot Summer special: Black Beth and the Devils of Al-Kadesh.
Previously starring in the 2018 Scream! and Misty horror anthology, the character debuted in a 1988 Scream! special, drawn by Blas Gallego and penned for a more mature audience by its anonymous scribe.
Clearly inspired by the likes of Conan and Red Sonja (not that that's a bad thing, of course), this new outing is written by Durham Red's Alec Worley, with art by DaNi.
Beth is a warrior-woman born in anger and forged in rage. She and her blind aide Quido have travelled to the wicked city of Shadrivar, in search of the evil witch Anis-Amuun.
Many think that she is long dead, but a mage called Estevan believes otherwise. He charges Beth with a quest to destroy the witch, initiating a sea-spanning quest which pits Beth’s curved blade against all manner of mystical creatures…and possibly Anis-Amuun herself!
