Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child

by Ghastly McNasty

Vertigo Comics are releasing a new supernatural story early next month called.Written by Selwyn Sefu Hinds, art by Denys Cowan and John Floyd, cover by Rafael Grampá, variant cover by Denys Cowan. Hinds and Cowan previously collaborated on short stories in the Vertigo anthologies Strange Adventures and The Unexpected.

Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child is the story of a half-breed, outcast and heir to the Voodoo Queenship of New Orleans, if she can live long enough to claim her birthright. New Orleans is the most haunted city in America: a town of centuries-old ghosts and newly drowned spirits; where vampires, voodoo spirits and loups-garous make their home. Ruling over this all are the powerful Voodoo Queens, whose influence stretches into politics, business and crime as they maintain a delicate balance between the mortal and supernatural worlds.

But in the aftermath of Katrina, all that has changed, for someone or something has murdered the Voodoo Queen and most of her court. The number one suspect is Dominique Laveau, a grad student at Tulane who is about to discover that her entire life has been a lie. Now Dominique must forge alliances with those out to kill her while seeking to uncover the truth behind the royal murders, as she is ultimately forced to deal with a destiny she could never have imagined.

Vertigo has long been a good source for supernatural and occult-themed titles, such as Sandman and Hellblazer and by all accounts this new comic is pretty good.

6 page preview is available over on io9.
