‘Manor Black’ Returns In February 2022 With A Haunting New Chapter
by Brendan M. Allen
The gothic horror series Manor Black returns from creators Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and Tyler Crook with 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.’
“It took a little longer than any of us wanted to return thanks to whatever corrupted wild magic has been unleashed in the world in the last couple of years, but you can’t hold Manor Black at bay for too long,” Cullen Bunn told Comicon. “I’m so excited to be working with Brian and Tyler on this story again, and we’re really going to start digging into the world with this one. I think readers are going to dig this new series, which leans into Roman Black’s past, and into some dark horror elements.”
