Black Cloak: The Murder Mystery Fantasy Series is Making its Way to Image Comics
Image Comics has announced that the creative team of writer Kelly Thompson and artist Meredith McLaren will be launching their murder mystery fantasy epic titled Black Cloak. A mashup of genres, Black Cloak follows two “Black Cloaks” who work together to solve a murder in the last city of the known world.
The full description for Black Cloak reads:
“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.”
Thompson shared that Black Cloak brings together all of their favorite things, saying:
“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.”
McLaren chimed in, saying:
“Kelly asked me to and I like her a whole lot.”
Black Cloak #1 will feature a main cover by series artist McLaren with variant covers by Jeff Dekal, Christian Ward, Peach Momoko, and Tula Lotay.
Black Cloak #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on January 11th, 2023.
