LOS ANGELES – January 11th, 2024 – Top Cow Productions, Inc., the company behind The Darkness, Witchblade, and Cyber Force, has partnered with EP1T0ME Studios, Inc. once again to launch ST. MERCY: GODLAND, the next installment of the hit action/adventure series, ST. MERCY


In this new chapter, writer John Zuur Platten (Jurassic World: Evolution, Wanted: Weapons of Fate) and artist Atilio Rojo (Cyber Force, A.R.C.) catapult Mercy from the dangers of the Incan Empire and the American West into the ruthless, golden era of 1930’s Hollywood.


According to Platten, “No matter where Mercy goes or what era she’s in, she can’t escape her curse. In GODLAND, while the setting shifts from the Wild West to what was then called Hollywoodland, Mercy’s unwanted duty remains the same – protect the Incan gold, death be damned.”


“Mercy is relentless; we cannot wait for readers to reunite with her, to see our version of 1930s Hollywood, to meet the new cast from that era, and to experience the wild action scenes,” says artist Rojo.


“Mercy’s journey feels unique and unexpected, and reminds us of the eclectic journeys of Game of Thrones’s Arya Stark or Quantum Leap’s Sam Beckett,” says EP1T0ME Creative Director Lee Thomas.

The title’s solicitation for issue #1 is:

    In ST. MERCY: GODLAND, Mercedes Oro finds herself immortal, forever tethered to the cursed ancient Incan gold, and in constant struggle with the Incan gods who deem her both a threat and an opportunity. Now, with the spirit of Toctolissica inside her, and her demon sister Quispe beside her, Mercy heads to 1930s Hollywood – a different golden age with gods of its own. Will Mercy’s newfound star power be enough to hold the past at bay, or will the power of the gods force her into the bloody center of a conflict even she can’t survive?
