Dark Horse Comics has announced Manor Black, a new four-issue miniseries from writers Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt and artist Tyler Crook. The series will feature covers by Crook and artist Dan Brereton.
Here’s how Dark Horse describes the series:
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.
These are creators with a long history of success together. Bunn and Hurtt have previously worked together on The Sixth Gun, a historical fantasy series from Oni Press that ran for 50 issues from 2010 to 2016, as well as the horror/noir series The Damned, which ran for nine issues over two miniseries from 2006 to 2008. Bunn and Crook have also previously produced the Dark Horse horror series Harrow County, which wrapped its 32-issue run last year.
Check out the covers for Manor Black #1 by Crook and Brereton below. The first issue of the four-issue miniseries is due in comic shops at the end of July.
