WILLIAM OF NEWBURY #1 is out this week!

Issue 1 of four connecting covers is out this week! Here is the extended trailer, thanks to my pal Sean McManus!

Loosely based on real events in 12th century England during what was known as “The Anarchy.” A time where the country was beset with plague, civil war, and demons.

William of Newbury announcement!!!

I am very excited to have Dark Horse Comics announce my new project, WILLIAM OF NEWBURY. It's a medieval adventure based on the historical writings of William of Newbury (AKA William of Newburgh) who was England's first historian. Full of spookyness, plague and war, Newbury is a safe place to be scared.

“I became a fan of Michael Oeming’s work from the first time I read Powers, and Willam of Newbury just makes me appreciate his work even more with his beautiful storytelling, artwork, and research into creating such a unique world and characters.  If...
