Writer Brandon Thomas and Khary Randolph are launching a new creator-owned series at Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment called Excellence. Set in a world of magic and a secret society of black magicians, Excellence is scheduled to debut May 8.
"Spencer Dales was born into a world of magic. His father belongs to the Aegis, a secret society of black magicians ordered by their unseen masters to better the lives of others - of higher potential - but never themselves," reads Skybound's description. "Now it’s time for Spencer to follow in his father’s footsteps, but all he sees is a broken system in need of someone with the wand and the will to change it. But in this fight for a better future...who will stand beside him?"
Excellence will be colored by Emilio Lopez and lettered by Deron Bennett.
Skybound is promoting this series as being completely by creators of color.
Look for Image Comics' full May 2019 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.
