So Cursed is based on a comic book?
It’s an Illustrated YA Novel and not a comic book. Frank Miller and author Tom Wheeler collaborated on the project together to tell the story of King Arthur from the point of view of the Lady of the Lake.
The comic was released on October 1st, 2019. The second image was meant to be the first cover but this has now been changed to orange cover on the left below.
