ST. MERCY: GODLAND Leaps into A New Era of Obsession: The Gods of The Golden Age of Hollywood
Top Cow Productions (The Darkness, Witchblade, and Cyber Force), has partnered with EP1T0ME Studios, Inc. once again to launch the next installment of the hit action/adventure series, ST. MERCY. The new series titled, ST. MERCY: GODLAND is set to release this April. In this new chapter, writer John Zuur Platten (Jurassic World: Evolution, Wanted: Weapons of Fate) and artist Atilio Rojo (Cyber Force, A.R.C.) catapult Mercy from the dangers of the Incan Empire and the American West into the ruthless, golden era of 1930’s Hollywood.
“No matter where Mercy goes or what era she’s in, she can’t escape her curse. In GODLAND, while the setting shifts from the Wild West to what was then called Hollywoodland, Mercy’s unwanted duty remains the same – protect the Incan gold, death be damned.” said series writer John Zurr Platten.
“Mercy is relentless; we cannot wait for readers to reunite with her, to see our version of 1930s Hollywood, to meet the new cast from that era, and to experience the wild action scenes,” added series artist Atilio Rojo.
“Mercy’s journey feels unique and unexpected, and reminds us of the eclectic journeys of Game of Thrones’s Arya Stark or Quantum Leap’s Sam Beckett,” says EP1T0ME Creative Director Lee Thomas.
In ST. MERCY: GODLAND, Mercedes Oro finds herself immortal, forever tethered to the cursed ancient Incan gold, and in constant struggle with the Incan gods who deem her both a threat and an opportunity. Now, with the spirit of Toctolissica inside her, and her demon sister Quispe beside her, Mercy heads to 1930s Hollywood – a different golden age with gods of its own. Will Mercy’s newfound star power be enough to hold the past at bay, or will the power of the gods force her into the bloody center of a conflict even she can’t survive?
