AfterShock Comics have announced details of Knights Temporal, a brand new fantasy series from writer Cullen Bunn, artist Fran Galan and letterer Simon Bowland.
Here’s the official blurb:
When Auguste de Riviere returned from the Crusades, he was ashamed and horrified by the things he had done. Hoping to reclaim his soul, he pledged to root out evil wherever it might be found. But when he pursues a vile sorcerer into a forbidden forest, his life is shattered. Auguste ventured into the dark forest, but emerged in the modern world. Accompanied now by the enigmatic Jane Fool, Auguste hunts a madman while trying to piece together the mystery of his very existence.
Speaking about the announcement, Bunn said “This is a weird fantasy tale. It’s the story of Auguste, a medieval knight in search of redemption, who pursues a vile necromancer into a forbidden, haunted forest. It is said that no one who enters this forest ever leaves. This is not the case for Auguste, though. He leaves the forest–but when he exits, he finds himself in another time. And another time. And another time.”
He continued, adding “Auguste’s very existence is shattered and cast through time and space. He exists over and over again in multiple eras. And in all of those eras, he has the same goal–to stop the necromancer’s evil plans. There’s a strange connection between all of these different “instances” of Auguste’s existence, one that can be both a boon and a deadly disadvantage, as you’ll see.”
Knights Temporal #1 hits stores on the 31st July 2019.
