Zoop is launching a brand new comic titled Nine Lives, from New York Times bestselling author Steve Horton (BOWIE: Stardust, Rayguns, & Moonage Daydreams) and artist Chris Peterson (Grindhouse, Broken World).

"Nine Lives is about nine incarnations of the same woman throughout history, each with different magic powers, and a reincarnated killer that targets each of them," reads Zoop's description. "Cleo, the sixth incarnation, is a flapper in '20s New York with the power to turn water into gin, and that's just the beginning."

This campaign is the culmination of a nearly 10-year history of Horton and Peterson attempting to get the book made. About the project, Horton says, "Never give up on projects! I've had this one in the back of my mind for years after it didn't find a home many years ago, and now the world gets to meet Cleo - all nine of her! Chris Peterson has only improved as an artist since we first pitched. If you liked any of our previous projects, you'll love this."

The CEO of Zoop, Jordan Plosky, had this to share about Nine Lives, “We are thrilled to be working with Steve and Chris on this project. It’s a feather in the cap of Zoop that we are able to help them realize their vision, when other methods could not. Finally, after so long of trying, there is now an outlet that fits the needs of creators such as Steve and Chris.”
