Hitting with another solo-series is Marvel’s mythical, magic-powered Avenger Black Knight. Only this time around, things are going to get… weird.
Their legend echoes through history. Ancient warriors and wielders of the legendary Ebony Blade. Champions of their own destiny. But what do you do when it’s your destiny…to be damned? Find out this November as the creative team of Frank Tieri (Wolverine) and Luca Pizzari (Red Skull) bring youBLACK KNIGHT #1 – a brand-new ongoing series launching as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel!
Forged by ancient magic, long has the Ebony Blade granted its user the powers of the Black Knight, passed down through the centuries. But all power comes with a price, as each and every Black Knight has met an untimely end – a victim of the blade’s curse. Will Dane Whitman’s fate be the same? The long-time Avenger’s addiction to the blade grows stronger and stronger every day. Will he succumb to its power and suffer the same end?
A lost man himself, Dane now finds himself in Weirdworld, the place where all lost things go. What are the circumstances that brought him to this strange place, so far from the world he called home? And what could he possibly have done that would cause the Uncanny Avengers to mobilize against him, a man they called friend?
See the Marvel Universe from a whole new angle this November as Tieri and Pizzari take Dane Whitman to the depths of Weirdworld and beyond in BLACK KNIGHT #1!
Yep, I’m on board for this one. While I haven’t been the biggest Marvel fan in recent years, and I’m not all that enamored with Secret Wars either, I love the shape that the Marvel U is taking in the post-SW world (mostly).
Black Knight is yet another title that’s just been announced and detailed that looks pretty terrific. I hope anyway. You have some excellent elements at play here with the magical side of the Marvel Universe factoring into the book, as well as a really interesting hook with the blade that Dane wields. If I’m not mistaken, that’s something that was retconned into the narrative, but while I’m not really a huge fan of going back in time to ‘fix’ things, in this case I actually like what’s added.
Lots to look forward to as Black Knight #1 hits the stands from the team of Frank Tieri and Luca Pizzari this November.
