Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced The Black Ghost Volume 2 is coming to comic shops and book stores in January 2023.

The series returns to Comixology starting August 30th.

For more on The Black Ghost vol. 1, check out our interview with Segura and Gallagher.

“At the end of Season One Lara proved to have the capacity to be courageous even in her darkest moments,” says co-writer Monica Gallagher. “But in Season Two, she can no longer outrun the years of issues that have been plaguing her. With this season we wanted to explore what Lara would be like when she accepted responsibility for her past mistakes and did perhaps the hardest thing of all — worked on herself. Along with Lara, the other characters likewise have a chance to grow and evolve.”

So what’s The Black Ghost Vol. 2 about?

Lara Dominguez is a reporter who moves from her hometown of Miami to the city of Creighton. There, Lara will have to navigate the corruption of her adopted city, the uncertainties of virtue, and her own personal demons.

Segura continues, “Monica and I have always said that The Black Ghost isn’t just another masked crimefighter looking to do good. We play with the elements that make up characters like Batman, The Question, Daredevil, and so on, but run them through a filter of raw humanity, in a setting that feels more like a city we’ve all walked through than the gothic streets of some fictional ones we know. That’s the initial story we were all interested in telling – what would really happen if a flawed, messed-up person was given the chance to do good – and redeem themselves in the process?”

June 7, 2022New York, NYThe Black Ghost—by co-writers Alex Segura and Monica Gallagher, artist George Kambadais, colorist Ellie Wright, letterer Taylor Esposito, and editor Greg Lockard—is back! The gritty crime comic book series about a masked activist fighting for the soul of her city continues monthly with Season Two issue #1, arriving on August 30, 2022 from Amazon’s Comixology Originals exclusive digital content line.

On the heels of his acclaimed novel Secret Identity, Alex Segura returns to The Black Ghost. “When Hard Revolution, the first arc in our series was received so warmly – and got the attention of places like The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and a print edition from Dark Horse Comics – we started to think of more,” says writer Alex Segura. “I could almost feel Monica and I looking at each other from across the country and thinking “Well, what do we do now?””

“At the end of Season One Lara proved to have the capacity to be courageous even in her darkest moments,” says co-writer Monica Gallagher. “But in Season Two, she can no longer outrun the years of issues that have been plaguing her. With this season we wanted to explore what Lara would be like when she accepted responsibility for her past mistakes and did perhaps the hardest thing of all — worked on herself.
