John Barrowman Announces New Comic Book Series

John Barrowman To Co-Write Cursed For Legendary Comics

Barrowman to Team Up With Sister Carole

There is a reason this is one of my favorite humans on the planet. He sings, He dances, he is creative, funny and generous. He has no shame, and willingly shares himself with his fans via Social Media. What can John Barrowman not accomplish at this point? Well you can’t add writing to the list. He has been writing for a while now with his sister. They have written comics covering the backstory of his Malcolm Merlyn Character. For anyone who knows anything about Barrowman, the fact that he is a comic book geek is common knowledge. So getting to play a role like Merlyn and write comics about him? That is the ultimate fanboy dream right there.

So, the Barrowman siblings soon will be re-teaming for Cursed, a new venture brought to us by Legendary Comics. They’ll also be working this time around with graphic novelist and television writer Erika Lewis (Game of Shadows, Firebrand: The Initiation of Natali Presano). 

What is Cursed About?

No to confuse people, this comic will be independent from the Arrow verse. This a comic series that is going to combine some of their biggest loves in life: History, Their Scottish Heritage, Sci-Fi and the Supernatural. What a coincidence, I love reading about these things too! The official synopsis of the comic that was released by Legendary is as follows:

On the eve of his 40th birthday, he seemed to have it all: the big house, the fast car, the beautiful family, and a high-power career at a leading criminal law firm. Charlie was a 21st century success story, riding high on his own ego. But when he falls victim to an ancient Celtic curse, everything spirals out of control as his perfect life becomes a disaster zone of chaos and calamity. Every decision he makes, every relationship he has, every choice he’s given is doomed to fail spectacularly, no matter what he does.

 Embarking on a quest for the truth behind the supernatural forces re-writing his destiny, he discovers that his ancient ancestor is Bonnie Prince Charlie, who made a deal with the ruthless Celtic God of War, Bregon. In return for the Bonnie Prince’s victory, Bregon demanded the prince steal three magical talismans from Bregon’s own sisters. These sisters cursed the entire bloodline and now Charlie must settle a centuries-long family squabble among gods in order to get his own family back.  Real life and ancient legend collide in unexpected ways as Charlie battles across this world and opens up realms of time and mystery that no mortal was ever meant to see.

I for one am greatly intrigued. I think they have the talent to bring this series to life and can’t wait to see it in print.
