Dark Horse Comics announced today that the gothic horror series Manor Black returns from creators Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Parasomnia), Brian Hurtt (The Sixth Gun, The Damned), and Tyler Crook (Harrow County, Colonel Weird: Cosmagog) in Manor Black: Fire in the Blood!
The powerful and ancient blood sorcerer Roman Black has taken a young fire mage under his wing after she has done the impossible—taken her magic house’s totem spirit inside herself. But the totem is powerful and may be impossible to control, especially when Roman’s children begin to see the young mage as a threat.
Roman Black treads dangerous waters in resisting the Descent—the ancient tradition of choosing a successor and transcending the mortal world. His own father held out against this inevitable fate, and the repercussions through the House of Blood were terrifying. Now, a tale of unrelenting terror from Roman’s past unfolds. What could it mean for Roman’s family? And how is Ari connected to a tragedy that erupted eighty years gone by?
Manor Black: Fire in the Blood #1 will be in comic shops on February 2, 2022.
