Image Comics Announces ‘Saga’/’Blade Runner’ Mash-Up ‘Black Cloak’ From Kelly Thompson And Meredith McClaren

by Olly MacNamee

Eisner Award winning writer Kelly Thompson (Black Widow, Captain Marvel) and artist Meredith McClaren (Jem & the Holograms, Super Fun Sexy Times, Hinges) are launching a new mystery/fantasy mashup with Black Cloak from Image Comics.

Here’s the full synopsis as well as a first look:

“Blade Runner style mixes with Saga-esque drama in a delectable fantasy/sci-fi blend as two Black Cloaks try to solve the murder of a beloved prince in Kiros—the last city in the known world—before his murder tips the city into war. The mystery begins in a spectacular triple-length first issue hitting shelves in the New Year.”

And, here’s what Thompson told Popverse:

“Black Cloak is essentially all of my favorite things—detective stories, fantasy creatures and magic, neo-noir sci-fi—thrown into a blender and made into something thrillingly new…or if not new, then at least new-ISH. And I’m so excited to be teaming up with Meredith again on a project where we can really cut loose with world-building and design. I can never get enough of how Meredith’s brain works and she has breathed incredible super cool life into Black Cloak.”

Look out for Black Cloak #1 on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 with the following covers:
