Top Cow/ Exclusive! Cover to The Magdalena #5 Revealed!

Courtesy of our friends at Top Cow, we have an exclusive look at the cover of The Magdalena #5 here at! The issue is slated for a November 3rd release. Check it out:

Yeah, it’s gorgeous.

The Magdalena is written by Top Cow scribe Ron Marz, with interior art from Nelson Blake II. This cover art is by Ryan Sook.

The Magdalena is about a line of warrior women descended from Christ and Mary Magdalene; with each generation a new “Magdalena” is discovered who serves as the Catholic Church’s supernatural enforcer. The chosen wield the Spear of Destiny, which was the same spear that pierced Christ’s side on Mount Calvary. It’s crazy stuff! In this series the current Magdalena, named Patience, has become disillusioned with the Church and has strayed from her duties. However, the emergence of the Son of Satan and his cult, Lucifer’s Children, has raised alarm amongst the religious community, and with the threat of Biblical Armageddon on the horizon, the Church needs its Magdalena now more than ever…

Here’s the solicit info for #5:

“When Patience, the latest in a long line of The Magdalena, bearer of the Spear of Destiny, and Kristof, her mentor and Knight of Malta, confront the demonic cult in ancient catacombs they soon find themselves overwhelmed. Patience has been told that Magdalena bearers tend to lead short lives and she is about to find out why first hand.”

So far only 2 issues of the series have been released, with #3 coming out in a little under two weeks on September 1st. Here’s a sneak peek of the cover to that issue:

    I feel like I should be reading this book with all the religious ties it has. Maybe Top Cow can send me a freebie to cover in my “Comics Are My Religion” column? 🙂

  3. This series is pretty good so far and the Magdalena was a character I didn’t care for back in the day. The character that carried the title was a different back then as well but it just didn’t sit well with me, however when I read the Daredevil/Magdalena team up book I realized that Patience was pretty cool. That’s what made me give this new series a try and so far it’s been worth it!

    I’m getting the dreaded red X for the first pic. One more reason to throw my computer off my deck! Yay!!!

  5. Billy- you aren’t the first one to say this. Although, the other person who told me the image wasn’t loading also has an older model computer.

    …anyone else experiencing this problem?

  6. Whoever decided to put Ryan Sook on the covers deserves a pat on the back!
