MILWAUKIE, Ore. (April 4, 2019)—Dark Horse is excited to announce a new miniseries from writers Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Sixth Gun) and Brian Hurtt (Poppy! And the Lost Lagoon, The Sixth Gun), and artist Tyler Crook (Harrow County, B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth). Described as "a soapy, eerie new comic that delivers as many laughs as it does jolts — often at the same time," by actor and comedian Patton Oswalt, Manor Black #1 features covers by Tyler Crook and Dan Brereton (Nocturnals).
From the creators of Harrow County and The Sixth Gun, comes a gothic horror fantasy about a family of sorcerers in crisis. Roman Black is the moribund patriarch of a family of powerful sorcerers. As his wicked and corrupt children fight over who will take the reins of Manor Black and represent the black arts, Roman adopts Ari, a young mage, who he gifts his powers to with the hope that someone good will take his place against the evil forces out to bring down his family and legacy.
The first issue of Manor Black (of four) goes on sale July 31, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
