This August, Image Comics will see the Incan Empire taking on the Wild West in St. Mercy, a new mini-series from writer John Zuur Platten, and artist Atilio Rojo.

“I’ve always been fascinated by mythical stories of characters facing impossible odds, and in St. Mercy, I was able to explore this for two young heroines connected through time,” said Platten in a press release from Image Comics. “Each must find the willpower to defy the evil and the powerful in the face of personal tragedy. And while St. Mercy has its roots in the tradition of classic westerns, things take a violent, bloody, and unexpected turn once the demonic children appear.”

A tale of vengeful retribution, St. Mercy pits the Incan Empire against the American West—and features two strong, determined young women who must defy authority and ultimately embrace their destiny. Mercedes Oro is one of the surviving descendants of the Incans who has been charged with protecting a cache of cursed gold used in their child sacrifice rituals.

But when an outlaw tries to steal the gold for his band of thieves, he unknowingly sets events in motion that will unleash an angry god who is willing to travel through the centuries to have what he desires.

St. Mercy #1 arrives on August 25, 2021.
