The Concept: Fourteen-year-old Chance Falconer has the occult in her blood. Her father, Lucas Falconer, is the supernatural defender of the Devil's Echo, an amazing city where the supernatural is an everyday occurrence. This is a family tradition handed down from one generation to the next and so Chance feels its time for her training to begin. Her father, however, has other ideas. His role as Devil's Echo's protector has left him a scarred and changed man. But when Lucas puts his foot down and says "no" to Chance's desire to continue the family tradition, she strikes out on her own to prove him wrong - getting involved in her own mysteries and adventures both fantastic and otherworldly. Is she up to this task? Leave it to Chance! Praised for its widespread appeal and ability to entertain both children and adults alike, Shaman's Rain is the first in Image's ongoing collections of the Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Leave it to Chance material. This will lead into new volumes picking up where the original series left off. Printed in an oversized hardcover format, this edition is Leave it to Chance as you have never seen it before. Recommended for readers and fans of Starman, Harry Potter, Batman Beyond, and Scooby Doo.

From the Publisher:

James Robinson came to America from the cold, gray climes of England. He stumbled into comic books like a drunken sailor and among his many works, most notable are the Golden Age, Firearm, Wild C.A.T.s, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, 67 Seconds, London’s Dark, Bluebeard and Illegal Alien. He currently writes for DC Comics and the ongoing adventures of Leave It To Chance.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like the Nancy Drew mysteries that inspired it, Robinson's newest work is a paean to the resourcefulness and spirit of a curious tomboyish type who's addicted to adventure. Chance Falconer is a 14-year-old only child born into a family of municipal sorcerers that has protected the city of Devil's Echo for centuries. Chance can't wait to start training in the family business, but her father decides he doesn't want a girl joining the family's dangerous profession. Predictably, it's not long before she stumbles onto a dead body and a kidnapping in progress, and soon enough she's got a full-fledged mystery on her hands. Devil's Echo is the kind of town where the mayor has to worry about evil spells and goblins in the sewers in addition to urban blight. Chance and her pint-sized flying dragon sidekick discover a plot to influence the mayoral election in Devil's Echo, but by the end of this rip-snorting supernatural adventure, she's uncovered an even bigger scheme to destroy both the town and her father. This is a girl power comic written with a younger audience in mind. The smartest cops are female, the violence is G-rated and the story is fast-paced, brightly colored and as wholesome as it gets. Published in an oversized hardcover edition that aims at recapturing the charm of comics adventure classics such as Tintin, the book's dynamic illustrations and its multicultural cast of characters make it an ideal storybook.
