Rebellion Releases — 7 December 2022

Set in an alternate 1940s USA where magic is commonplace and WWII was won through occult means, Hope follows Mallory Hope, former New York cop turned Hollywood PI and magician who returned from the nightmares of war just to find that the nightmares came back with him.

With a demon attached to his soul and his wife seduced by magic while he was gone, vanishing and taking their young son with her, Hope knows the heavy cost being a practitioner of the dark arts can exact.

That was then. This is now. Reel One of Hope… In The Shadows saw Mallory called in to investigate a cursed film. Now, in Reel Two, Hope’s wife Alice is back. This is not the reunion Mallory was hoping for…

Guy Adams: The idea with this series was always to expand, not just in pure comics real estate (we’re twice the size, a conservatory extension of bonus horror). Ongoing series need to unfurl I think, to keep changing the stakes, the shape of the world.
