ComiXology Originals is adding another title to its roster. Debuting October 2, urban fantasy series Forgotten Home will follow Sheriff’s Deputy Lorraine Adalet as she investigates child disappearances all over Montana that have one major thing in common: traces of magic. Written by Erica Schultz with art by Marika Cresta, colors by Matt Emmons and Jackie Von Spanks, letters by Cardinal Rae, and covers by Natasha Alterici, the series will feature eight digital issues released monthly.
It’s not just magic that complicates Lorraine’s search for the missing children in Forgotten Home. When her own teenage daughter is caught up in the kidnappings, Lorraine learns that the culprit is tied to her own past — which forces her to return home to the magical realm of Jannada, a world caught in a bitter war that she fled as a teen. To save her daughter, Lorraine has to confront her past and deal with the fallout of her two worlds colliding.
“Lorraine is a single mother from another world who is forced home when children start to disappear in her town on Earth,” Cresta said in a statement. “Lorraine is the princess of her home world, Jannada, but returning home isn’t easy for her, as her relationship with the queen is strained. At its heart, Forgotten Home is a story about family with problems, misunderstandings and imperfections, all of which play out in a fantastical and unexpected setting.”
Schultz said, “I’ve had a fabulous time creating a magical world that the audience will believe truly exists. Yissel Ayala, a fashion designer for several comic books, was kind enough to take on the task of creating the initial designs for the Jannadan royal outfits. Her style is impeccable, and, coupled with Marika Cresta’s line art, this book is just gorgeous.”
Check out an exclusive, five-page preview of Forgotten Home #1 below. The series debuts on ComiXology Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019.
