THE BLACK KNIGHT RAISES HIS SWORD AGAINST THE KING IN BLACK

King in Black begins in December and it just keeps getting bigger. Marvel Comics has already revealed a few tie-ins and mini-series. Now it's announced another with King in Black: Black Knight. Debuting in January from writer Simon Spurrier and artist Jesus Saiz, the comic follows Dane Whitman, the famed wielder of the Ebony Blade, as he faces off against an endless horde of symbiote dragons in the skies of Shanghai. Black Knight will have to overcome the growing evil within himself while dealing with surprising discoveries about his past to succeed.

“I've always had a soft spot for the Black Knight. On paper he's a splendid mashup of renaissance-fair fantasy and blood-drenched horror, somehow managing to hold his own alongside the bright sciencey heroes of the Marvel Universe. It should be an awkward fit -- and maybe it is. Maybe that awkwardness is what really sings about this character. A troubled anachronism trying to hide his dysfunction behind swashbuckly snark, whose greatest weapon (the fabled Ebony Blade!) is also the source of all his trouble. See, it's a bit... well... murdery. In a "Thirsts For The Blood Of The Living" sort of way.
 
“This is not your average hero. But then, King In Black is not your average event. In this crashing-together of eldritch shadows and global defenders, who better to come charging forth to slay some dragons (technically cosmic superpredators, but let's not split hairs) than a champion soaked in darkness of his own? And who better to shine the spotlight on some of Earth's Mightiest Heroes outside the western hemisphere than a guy who feels like a stranger in his own armor?
 
King In Black: Black Knight takes the action to the skies above Shanghai and tangles the King in Black event with the fates of two extraordinary Chinese heroes. It glories in the ultra-rich painted art of Jesus Saiz, and verily, 'pon my troth, thou art mightily compelled to check it out.”

King in Black: Black Knight features a cover by Dan Mora. It's set for release in January 2020.
