LOS ANGELES, October 22, 2019 – Legendary Comics and the WEBTOON hit series Acursian starring John Barrowman (“Arrow,” “Torchwood,” “Doctor Who”) returns with the first weekly chapter leading up to the anticipated conclusion of Season One, now available exclusively at WEBTOON. The series, rooted in Celtic lore, is a unique fusion of mythic storytelling from co-creators John Barrowman, Carole Barrowman (Torchwood: Station Zero, Hollow Earth, Conjuror, Exodus Code) and Erika Lewis (#Guardian, Game of Shadows, Firebrand: The Initiation of Natali Presano, The 49th Key), with art by Beni Lobel and designs by Tommy Lee Edwards. Readers can visit WEBTOON.com for more information.
In Acursian, Charlie Stewart, the man who had it all, falls victim to an ancient Celtic curse. Every decision he makes, every relationship he has, every choice he’s given is doomed to fail spectacularly, and sometimes comically, no matter what he does. Embarking on a quest for the truth behind the supernatural forces re-writing his destiny, Charlie discovers that his ancestor Bonnie Prince Charlie made a deal with the ruthless Celtic God of War, Bregon, and his Three Sisters have cursed the family line. After losing everything he holds dear, Charlie, along with his best friend Nate, continue to hunt for the talismans that will restore his reality, all the while encountering familiar faces along the way. Real life and ancient legend collide in unexpected ways as Charlie battles across this world and opens realms of time and mystery that no mortal was ever meant to see.
“John, Carole and Erika have masterfully created a captivating story that keeps readers enthralled as Charlie races through time to break the family curse,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics. “We are thrilled for the return of Acursian and to share the gripping conclusion of Season One with our readers and fans.”
“Erika, Carole and I are so excited that Charlie’s back on Webtoon!” said John Barrowman. “But, he’s not in a good place. He’s lost his job, his family, his money. He’s pissed off the God of War and a powerful witch, and the fates are still torturing him. Charlie’s clock is ticking. If he can’t put things right, his family will be lost to him forever.”
“Legendary Comics has been a long-time partner with WEBTOON, and we are excited to resume Acursian with them,” said David Lee, WEBTOON Head of Content. “Fans can finally follow Charlie Stewart’s epic journey, until the end.”
