Natasha Alterici's Heathen is returning from hiatus, with the delayed #7 and #8 now scheduled for release in June and July, and then Ashley Woods taking over drawing the series with issue #9.
“I’m ecstatic about being on board for Heathen," Woods said. "I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the first six issues, Natasha’s writing and storytelling is very ethereal. I’m excited to join forces with her."
Heathen was recently beset with delays after January 2018's #6, with #7 and #8 solicited twice each but pulled off Diamond Comic Distributors' schedule.
“Ashley is superbly talented, her characters are alive and expressive, her worlds vivid and wondrous," said Alterici. "I am confident in her skills and her vision, and I am so pleased to have her as a part of team Heathen."
Heathen was optioned for a feature film in 2018.
