Mirka Andolfo's Mercy showed us some Victorian monster vibes so it's no surprise that we're getting more from this world. Image Comics has announced Merciless, a follow up series written by Andolfo and illustrated by Siya Oum set to debut in 2021. It picks up right after the events of Mercy #6.

“While I was writing the sixth issue of Mercy, I did realize that I simply couldn't end the story,” said Andolfo in an exclusive scoop on the announcement with The Hollywood Reporter. “I mean: Lady Hellaine’s story had to finish (as I had foreseen), but the world I built in Mercy had to be the set for more stories to be told. And I wasn't ready to say goodbye to the character of Rory, especially after the final cliffhanger. I talked to my Italian publisher (which produced Mercy) and to Image, and I had enthusiastic feedback. And I had the chance to call a creator I do adore, both professionally and personally: Siya accepted to work with me on this story, and I really can't wait to show something more…”

Things are starting to turn around for Rory—financial security, status, a sense of belonging—but if it’s one thing she’s learned over the years it’s that good things don’t last. How could they when someone is ready to bring the “new” Lady Hellaine back to the harsh reality… It will be increasingly difficult for Rory to try to have a normal life. Even if she deserves it. Maybe.

Oum told The Hollywood Reporter: “For the longest time, I have admired Mirka's work. She is always creating something fresh, lively, and unique only to her. I bugged her for a Fathom cover while I was penciling the book! Anything to be able to work with one of my favorite artists/creators. There was no way I would pass up the opportunity to work with Mirka and the team!” 

Merciless #1 is set for release in late 2021. All six issues of Mercy will be collected in a trade paperback on December 2nd, 2020 at your local comic shop and December 8th, 2020 at bookstores and Amazon.
