Author of The Seance Room, Ben Goldsmith, and Travis Mercer, whose Nightwing pencils caused considerable fuss earlier in the year, are launching a new series in November. from Mad Cave, RV9. Set in the futuristic streets of Italy in the year 2055, RV9 follows former assassin, Velveteen, who is on the run from the Order of the 9, the organization that took her from her family and forced her into a life of secrecy, violence, and death. Now, after years of running, she is bringing the fight to them. With help from an American hacker, Jasper, and a rookie officer with an attitude, Inspector Pazzi, Velveteen will use everything she was taught by the Order of the 9 against them.
Goldsmith says, “I’ve always wanted to know how one of the deadliest assassins in the world would deal with love. RV9 is that story. It pits the future and technology against the past, selflessness versus self-preservation, and power vs the power of love. It has been an honor and privilege to work with Mad Cave on this book and I hope you all come along for the ride with Travis and myself.”
