Dark Horse bring the laughs and the scares in "Manor Black"
Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt come together this July for the Dark Horse miniseries Manor Black, which is one part family drama and one part supernatural comedy. The four issue series sees a family’s magical patriarch adopt a young wizard unto whom he will bestow his legacy… all because his children are total jerks. That’s a funny enough concept on its own, but throw in magic and you can really get into some crazy shenanigans. Plus, Bunn and Hurtt? That’s a great team there, so sign us up.
Check out the details below.

WHAT KIND OF SORCERY IS THIS? THE FAMILY KIND
Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and Tyler Crook Unite for “Manor Black” from Dark Horse
MILWAUKIE, Ore. (April 4, 2019)—Dark Horse is excited to announce a new miniseries from writers Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Sixth Gun) and Brian Hurtt (Poppy! And the Lost Lagoon, The Sixth Gun), and artist Tyler Crook (Harrow County, B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth). Described as “a soapy, eerie new comic that delivers as many laughs as it does jolts — often at the same time,” by actor and comedian Patton Oswalt, Manor Black #1 features covers by Tyler Crook and Dan Brereton (Nocturnals).
From the creators of Harrow County and The Sixth Gun, comes a gothic horror fantasy about a family of sorcerers in crisis. Roman Black is the moribund patriarch of a family of powerful sorcerers. As his wicked and corrupt children fight over who will take the reins of Manor Black and represent the black arts, Roman adopts Ari, a young mage, who he gifts his powers to with the hope that someone good will take his place against the evil forces out to bring down his family and legacy.
Manor Black #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on July 31.
