Formally announced at Image Expo last month, Umbral is the new dark fantasy series by Antony Johnson (Coldest City, Dead Space, Daredevil) and Christopher Mitten (Criminal Macabre, Batman: Legends of The Dark Knight) launching in November. The pair previously worked together on a 30-issue stint of Wasteland, an post-apocalyptic epic for Oni Press (that continues long after Mitten's departure), and knowing something about the work of these two creators, it's likely that Umbral is similarly ambitious in scope, world-building and genre-tweaking.

What's known about Umbral is presently as shadowy as its name, but it definitely involves magic and murder. You can see Johnston and Mitten's specially prepared "trailer" strip below.
