PREVIEW: Black Mask's First Ongoing Series - 'Destiny, NY' by Pat Shand and Manuel Preitano

 What if there was a magical prophecy that you were destined to save the world, and you fulfilled it so young you don’t know what to do with the rest of your life?   

That’s the problem facing Logan McBride in DESTINY, NY, the ongoing comic book series launching in March 2021.

Together, writer Pat Shand (Black Mask’s SNAP FLASH HUSTLE), artist Manuel Preitano (DC Comics’ THE ORACLE CODE), and cover artists Elisa Romboli (upcoming ALICE IN LEATHERLAND), Terry Moore (STRANGERS IN PARADISE), and Rosi Kämpe (SPIDER-GWEN) have created a grounded story about the magic of young adulthood, star-crossed modern romance, delayed coming of age, and finding your place in a world too busy to notice you.

“Destiny, NY is a story about what happens next. Fantasy stories always end when the prophecy is complete, when the villain is defeated. I wanted to find out what happens next. How does the subject of a prophecy go on to live a normal, fulfilling life when everyone around them tells them that they’ve already done the greatest thing they’ll ever do?” said writer Pat Shand, who originally self-published DESTINY, NY through Kickstarter. “My first two series at Black Mask Studios, BREATHLESS and SNAP FLASH HUSTLE, were dreams come true. Matt Pizzolo is someone who supports creators who come to a series with a vision, someone who asks what he can do to make that vision a reality. DESTINY, NY is my first ongoing creator-owned series, and I feel proud to bring it to a publisher run by someone who invests in passion.”  

In DESTINY, NY, Logan grew up a “prophecy kid” attending the elite NYC boarding school DESTINY, NY for children with magical prophecies. At twelve years old, she faced down a cataclysmic crisis and rescued the entire planet… but hardly anyone even knows what she did, and since then she’s been directionless. There’s no prophecy for what Logan is supposed to do with the rest of her life… she’s having a midlife crisis despite being in her 20s. But when Logan falls for Lilith, the estranged daughter of a mystical crime family, their new love puts the entire school in jeopardy.

The DESTINY, NY ongoing series will launch with a double-sized first issue on March 31, 2021.
