These five covers will adorn each issue of the series, laying out the rich history of the Black Knight mantle from Stan Lee and Joe Maneely’s original creation to the villainous days of Nathan Garett to Dane Whitman’s time as an Avenger!
“When I was offered the opportunity to do these five iconic covers for BLACK KNIGHT: CURSE OF THE EBONY BLADE, my main concern was to find a way to link them all together, a strong concept,” Hans explained. “Flames are the constant element uniting them all. I tried to make them all as interesting together and as singular pieces. My second concern was to be able to give a solid representation of older designs, considering materials and practicality. I hope I did a good job.”
Currently holding up the legacy of the Black Night, Dane Whitman who knows all too well that welding the magical Ebony Blade comes at a terrible price: an insatiable lust for blood and mayhem that constantly threatens to swallow its owner in darkness. Will that be Dane’s fate? Following his epic battle against the KING IN BLACK, a reinvigorated Dane has a greater sense of purpose than ever before. But his sword is the key to a new enemy’s evil plan and only the Black Knight can prevent the coming death and destruction. This conflict spanning mythical Camelot to modern-day NYC will test Dane like never before and challenge everything he believes about himself, the Ebony Blade, and the entire history of the Black Knight.
