Boom! Studios' new series Hexed may be your new favorite comic: Like a supernatural version of JJ Abrams' Alias, it's Buffy gone bad... and it's also available online for free. What more could you want?
Hexed - a new four issue series from Boom!, the people behind the Farscape and upcoming The Incredibles comics - centers around occult thief Luci Jennifer Inagcio Das Neves (you can call her Lucifer for short) and a particular job that, as you may expect, doesn't necessarily go as easily as she may hope.
With writing from Michael Alan Nelson and beautiful art from Emma Rios and colorist Cris Peters, Hexed is aiming directly at the same audience who dig Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Vertigo's Hellblazer... and with an unusual distribution plan, it's likely to reach them. At the same time as each issue of the series is released in comic stores, the full issue will go online, for free, at MySpace.com in both embedded image and .cbz format. The reason for this seemingly counter-intuitive scheme? Boom! Editor in Chief Mark Waid explains:
