iO9 has the news from DC Comics. Well Genevieve does write for them…
Catwoman writer Ann Nocenti will helm a new comic starring Klarion the Witch Boy in October — while author/io9’s own Genevieve Valentine takes over Catwoman!
We last saw Klarion in Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving‘s Seven Soldiers title. This time he appears to have teched up a little.
There are two “schools” of thought that prey on young witches and wizards. Coal and the Necrots believe in the power of technology. Piper and Noah believe in the pagan power of the planet. Coal has a heavy metal club, The Necropolitan, and techo and metal music are part of his power. There will be intense battles between these wizards, and all the characters have secrets. Deep secrets. Coal is a talented novice of Techno-Wizardry. He lives in a computer graveyard, a techno breeding ground. Coal needs technology to thrive and be powerful, just as Klarion needs the planet to be healthy in order for him to draw on his pagan powers. Coal and Klarion are in a battle for the health (or death) of the planet.
And as for Catwoman…
After the dust settles in Batman Eternal, Selina Kyle has discovered she’s part of a legacy she never knew before, and heir to the family business. She decides to accept the position, both because she sees a chance to restore a ruined Gotham and because, deep down, Selina’s always played power games against herself. In this arc, she’ll be coming face to face with what she’s willing to do to keep her power, on a scale that could shake the whole city.
