This April, Image Comics will publish The Ludocrats, a five-issue mini-series by bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (Die, The Wicked + The Divine), writer Jim Rossignol (Sir, You Are Being Hunted), and artist Jeff Stokely (The Spire).
The Ludocrats is a gleefully bizarre fantasy miniseries that thinks there’s more gold in the hills mined by I Hate Fairyland, and they can uncover it with illegally acquired Python-infused explosives. The series billed as the collision of the ornate fantasy of Dune and an M-rated Asterix & Obelix!, follows Baron Otto Von Subertan and Professor Hades Zero-K, who are going to
save us all have a nice time.
Image Comics ominously revealed the Ludocrats #1 cover B featuring reality-warping artwork from Jamie McKelvie (The Wicked + The Divine, forthcoming The Killing Horizon), which will be available with the series launches in April.
When asked to comment on the cover, McKelvie didn’t say:
“This is the greatest comic I’ve ever seen. It’s better than anything I’ve done. I wish Kieron would ask me for quotes, but we only speak via Lawyers now WicDiv is over. It’s a tragic breakdown of a friendship.”
When reached for a response to McKelvie’s comment, Gillen said:
“Talk to my lawyer.”
