Legendary might not be the first name you think of when it comes to indie publishers, but that might be something you want to change. We’ve covered a number of Legendary titles here at Geek Legacy, including Annihilator, Shadow Walk, Epochalypse and A Town Called Dragon, and while the stories couldn’t be more different, they all share one thing in common: they’re all excellent comics. Legendary’s next hit-in-the-making is The Harvester, from horror writer Brandon Seifert and artist Eric Battle.

Today, the cover art was revealed, and it looks fantastic. Take a look below, as well as some information about the upcoming title, and get ready to grab it when it releases February 11th.

Since the dawn of time, mischievous troublemakers have been warned of his wrath, scholars have searched for traces of his existence and evildoers have been tormented by the unstoppable force that goes by a single name: The Harvester.

Some say he is nothing more than a folktale, an urban legend, a ghost story we tell our children. Others believe this nightmarish enforcer has been battling wickedness in our world for centuries, taking justice into his own savage hands. The time has come for the truth to be revealed.

Two rebellious investigators embark on a dangerous mission to uncover the mystery behind The Harvester. As they piece together his bloody path through history, a sinister force of darkness is unveiled that threatens every soul on Earth.
