Created by Ian Churchill with collaboration with Jeph Loeb. The unique series was publishe by Awesome Entertainment. The Coven was by far one of their most popular titles. While the rest of the Awesome Universe focused on the Super side of comics, the Coven explored the mystic underworld of this universe. Unfortunately as the company folded the Coven was one of the first titles to cease publication. But many fans still remember it as some of Jeph Loeb's and Ian Churchil's best work.
Cain and Abel...everyone knows the story...Cain killed Abel....and the Lord marked him for all to see that it was he that brought murder into the world. centuries later....
Christina Baker is your average college student that suffers from deadlines, school, loans, the lack of a good guy in her life but what she doesnt lack are headaches...upon walking back to her dorm she has a severe headache. This leads her to discover two people stealing from a museum. They are Scratch (a possessed priest) and Fantom (a vampire). Upon their discovery she sees the Pentad enter the fray and there battle begin.
That night Christina is introduced to the world of The Coven. Their leader arrives to help turn the tide in their favor (to some degree). Blackmass introduces Christina to the world of magic and mysticism and explains how the Coven are the first best and last line of defense for the world. He also explains that the Pentad are there counterparts.
The Coven consist of:
Blackmass : The seventh son of a seventh son. He is the leader of the Coven and can manipulate his bodies density.
Scratch: A possessed priest who constantly battles the demon within to keep him at bay.
