Dark Horse to Publish “The Occultist Omnibus” in April 2018

Rob Bailey is acquiring another magical book with The Occultist Omnibus! In 2010, writer Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash) brought his rare mix of humor, horror, and heroes to Dark Horse Comics’ own Mike Richardson’s magical creation in a popular one-shot, which soon transformed into a popular ten issue, two volume series! Artists Victor Drujiniu (The Waking), Mike Norton (Battle Pug), and Jason Gorder (Darkchylde) brought Rob Bailey’s adventure to life while colorists Andrew Dalhouse (Irredeemable) and Allen Passalaqua (Trinity) provide their supernaturally gorgeous coloring skills to the series. The Occultist Omnibus cover is by artist Steve Morris (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

The Occultist Omnibus collects The Occultist #1-#5 and The Occultist Volume 2: At Death’s Door #1-#5. The Occultist Omnibus follows college student Rob Bailey after he stumbles upon a magical book that gives him supernatural powers; he gets not only new occult abilities, but also dangerous problems that come with them. A gang of hitman mages are sent by a sorcerer who wants the book for himself, and Rob has to learn the ropes of his new powers fast before they can get to him.
