Titan Comics has released this first look at the Shades of Magic prequel comic from writer V.E. Schwab and artist Andrea Olimpieri.

V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series features parallel versions of London, each with their own rules – Grey London, a drab realm devoid of magic ruled by mad King George; Red London, where life and magic is revered under the strong Maresh Dynasty; White London, a harsh world where people fight magic, and magic fights back, draining the city to its core; and finally, the menacing Black London – but no-one dares to speak its name.

In Titan’s new Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince series, young and unruly Prince Maxim of Red London is sent to the lawless city of Verose after disobeying the King. Little does he know that a fate worse than exile awaits him on the Blood Coast…

“I’m thrilled to share the stunning covers and first interior art for The Steel Prince,” said Shades of Magic creator V.E. Schwab. “Maxim Maresh became one of the most controversial figures in the Shades of Magic series, more often seen as an antagonist than a hero. But The Steel Prince paints a different picture of the young man, long before he was king. It has taken incredible talent to bring his journey to life on the page. The artistry with which Andrea and Enrica have captured young Maxim borders on true magic. I can’t wait for readers to see the rest of the story and the beautiful artwork in The Steel Prince this fall.”

Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince #1 arrives in October 2018.
