Prequel Comic to V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic Series Will Preview at Comic Con

V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series is coming to comics with a brand new story–a prequel to her first trilogy that follows an exiled prince…

THR has reported that Schwab’s Titan Comics series—Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince—will preview at San Diego Comic Con, and featuring artwork by Andrea Olimpieri, with colors from Enrica Angiolini. The plot will revolve around Prince Maxim Maresh, a member of Red London’s ruling family who is sent into exile, an event that will have important repercussions in the years that follow. Schwab head this to say about working on the series:

“Having a comic has been a dream of mine for such years, so seeing these pages for the first time was an magical experience! Andrea and Enrica are so very talented, as is my editor, Amoona [Saohin], and I am incredibly lucky to have them working on The Steel Prince.”

The comic will hit shelves this October, and Schwab has signed with Tor Books for another trilogy set in the Shade of Magic universe! Check out the preview pages of The Steel Prince over at The Hollywood Reporter.
