Marvel unveils Stephanie Hans 'Black Knight' connecting covers

“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 in a press release sent to AIPT. “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.”
