Sorcery Rides City’s Streets in Image’s Nomen Omen

No matter how fast you run, sooner or later your past will catch up with you. Enter Becky Kumar, a geeky twenty-year-old from New York City who is about to cross the veil between our reality and a realm of otherworldly truths. From writer and RPG creator Marco B. Bucci (Magna Veritas, Memento Mori) and artist Jacopo Camagni (X-Men Blue, Deadpool The Duck) comes a tale of tales, witchcraft, and secrets for mature readers that rewires the rules of urban fantasy.

Contributor Bios:

Marco B. Bucci, born in 1981, represents a new breed of storyteller. Photographer, designer, illustrator and writer, in 2004 he founded Studio Dronio with Jacopo Camagni, with whom he created Magna Veritas, a comic book series published by Soleil in France in 2005. He also wrote the backstory of Dogs of War, a CMON Ltd board-game, and co-created the tabletop RPG Memento Mori. In 2018 he co-wrote Codex Gigas, a Memento Mori companion book that serves as a full-fledged grimoire as well. As of today, he still juggles between his activity as a photographer for some of the most prestigious fashion labels, the artistic production of role-playing games manuals as well as a writer for comics and novels.

Jacopo Camagni has been working in the comics and illustration industry for over twenty years. In 1998 he's drawn an original graphic novel dedicated to Lupin the 3rd under the supervision of the late Monkey Punch, creator of the character. Ten years later he began working for Marvel Comics. Since then he lent his art to some of the most famous characters of the Marvel Universe, such as Longshot, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Deadpool the Duck, the X-Men and Kanan from the Star Wars franchise. He's been working non-stop on Nomen Omen since 2017
