Press Release

Ahead of its release in June and July, Marvel Comics has revealed the final two Stephanie Hans connecting covers for Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade.

“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.”

The series by Si Spurrier and Sergio Dávila has introduced new allies like Elsa Bloodstone to Dane Whitman’s life as the miniseries has probed mythology behind the Black Knight itself.

“Dane and his tangled lore are a treasure trove for anyone fascinated by story, mythology, folklore and psychology — all of which are very much My Bag — not to mention the simple thrill of seeing a not-totally-well-adjusted man flying around on a winged warhorse with one of the world’s most devastating magical weapons in his hand,” Spurrier said. “I started to sense that this character deserves to be a far bigger deal than he is — and my editor Tom Groneman agreed. What’s emerged is a fascinating, uberdark story which drips with horror and humor in equal measure. rummaging deep into the (often maddeningly confused) threads of canon surrounding the Black Knight, to disentangle, clarify and twiiiiiiiissssttt everything you thought you knew about this hero.”
