Today Is Stephanie Hans Day – See Her Black Knight Cover Set

It looks like it will be Stephanie Hans Day on Bleeding Cool today! She has created a pentatych of covers for the upcoming Black Knight: Curse Of The Ebony Blade. And Marvel comics is showing off the first three.

"When I was offered the opportunity to do these five iconic covers for Black Knight: Curse Of The Ebony Blade, my main concern was to find a way to link them all together, a strong concept," Hans explained. "Flames are the constant element uniting them all. I tried to make them all as interesting together and as singular pieces. My second concern was to be able to give a solid representation of older designs, considering materials and practicality. I hope I did a good job."

Black Knight: Curse Of The Ebony Blade is published on March 17th and has just gone to FOC. Written by Simon Spurrier with art by Sergio Dávila, it is timed to that a collection can be published before the release of the Eternals movie, in which Kit Harington will play the character.

These five covers depict the history of the Black Knight mantle from Stan Lee and Joe Maneely's original creation to the villain Nathan Garett to Dane Whitman's time as an Avenger. There is a preview of the first issue below.
