When the world is under siege from the pits of hell, it's up to The Devilers to set things right. The world's greatest exorcists pit themselves against Satan's army, while all of creation hangs in the balance. From the writer of The Bunker,The Ultimates, and I, VAMPIRE comes a horror-fueled adventure through hell itself.

"Fans of the work I did on I, VAMPIRE will find a continuation of a lot of the themes and ideas I started over there, but in a completely new package," says best-selling comic book writer Joshua Hale Fialkov, "It's been a blast to tell a big ol' supernatural horror adventure story again."

"There's a great tradition of team books in comics and we've worked hard to continue that tradition here." - Joseph Rybandt, Dynamite Senior Editor

"This series is the ‘Magnificent Seven' of different religious figures banding together to fight off an evil that will take all of their powers. Joshua is an incredibly gifted writer who has proven that he can tackle any genre. He has an impressive track record from Elk's Run and Tumor to his I, Vampire, Ultimates, Bunker comic series and more, and I will be biased in stating that The Devilers is his best work to date. His writing is crisp and smart. Add to that the incredible artwork that Matt Triano is delivering, and the unbelievably captivating covers by Jock, and you have an incredible series. This is the first in an incredible line of creator driven books and we're launching off our creator-driven the line up with an incredible group of creators bring incredible passion for the launch series to help celebrate and usher in for the next chapter at Dynamite."

Joshua Hale Fialkov is the Eisner, Harvey, and Emmy award nominated creator of The Bunker, Tumor, Punks, and Echoes. He was the writer of the critically acclaimed I, VAMPIRE for DC's New 52, and is an architect of the ULTIMATE UNIVERSE at Marvel Comics. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, daughter, two dogs, and a disgruntled cat.

The Devilers #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' May Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release on July 16, 2014. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of The Devilers #1 with their local comic book retailers.

I remember this being announced like two years ago. Glad to see it finally coming out. I've been a big fan of Fialkov's creator owned work for years so I'll definitely be checking this out. $2.99 price point for this new line at Dynamite is pretty sweet too.

Dynamite, please get al ewing to come back and do a creator owned project! I know that after his jennifer blood and ninjette's run, he must be itching to come back to you all.

I'm really happy for Dynamite with all these announcements. I hope all this works out for them. They really are super underrated, even though they have some great properties.

Sounds very interesting and worth checking out. My biggest problem with Dynamite is more variant covers than marvelnow!, but of course they don't have to be bought. But it looks they are doing some things like Image which is a good thing.

WOW! this is so good for the Comic industry.

Marvel, you should learn from Dynamite to pricing your books!

I really like that he said it was like the Magnificent Seven but religious figures.

Yawn, anything religiously themed is garbage

Dynamite has some cool stuff with their pulp/ Gold Key guys. This looks really promisiing. I think Dynamite has some really underrated stuff. Turok and Magnus are solid.

Looks promising. I may check this one out although I'm starting to get into that "too much" range right now.
