Simon Curtis Announces 'The Witches of Silverlake' Graphic Novel With Legendary Comics

Simon Curtis is breaking into the comic scene!

The 8Bit Heart pop singer-songwriter and Boy Robot author is releasing a graphic novel, called The Witches of Silverlake, with Legendary Comics in early 2021.

Here’s a plot summary: “After his dad dies, Elliott Green moves across country to Los Angeles where his mother has accepted the position of Vice Principal at one of the most prestigious private schools and where he is currently enrolled. He is quickly taken in by the school’s outcasts—the scholarship kids, the queer kids, and the ones who just don’t fit in with the glossy trust fund babies—and they let him in on their little secret: they’re witches. He ventures out into the world of crystal stores and occult shops in Silverlake, until one fateful day, he encounters an elderly shop owner who delivers a prophecy, warning him not to tap too deeply into real magic. The next morning, as Elliot and his coven use a stolen initiation candle to cast a spell to activate their abilities, they unknowing open a gate, unleashing a magic that is powerful, real, and might be even more dangerous than they could have possibly imagined.”

“I am beyond thrilled to be working with Legendary to bring these characters to life. Elliot and his coven of queer, teen witches are everything I’ve always dreamed of seeing in pop culture, and I’m so excited to have a company with such incredible vision as eager as I am to tell a story of the magic of otherness,” said Simon of the partnership.

Ahead of the release, Simon will join the Legendary Comics team at 2019 Los Angeles Comic Con at the “Legendary Comics 2019 and Beyond” panel on Saturday (October 12).
