Image Comics announced that Eisner Award-winning writer Ian Boothby will team up with artist Gisèle Lagacé for an ongoing series EXORSISTERS launching this October. Ian was quoted as saying: “Gisèle draws both the real and surreal so well I wanted to work with her on a story that mixed the two. Cate and Kate Harrow fight against outer and inner demons because when it comes to actual Hell on Earth that can often be family.” More details are available at ImageComics.com
