‘Blackwood’ Brings Your Dose of the Occult to Dark Horse this May


Six-time Eisner award winner Evan Dorkin and artist Veronica Fish have teamed up for the supernatual murder mystery, Blackwood. Blackwood College is a dark school of sorcery. Don’t look for Hogwarts, if the below synopsis is any indication:

Blackwood College is far from your average university. Instead of meeting your general education requirements and rushing Kappa Kappa Whatever, you’ll instead find yourself trained in the occult and dealing with an undead dean’s curse, a mischievous two-headed mummy-chimp, and a plague of mutant insects. At least, that’s what happens when four teens with haunted pasts enroll at Blackwood to enhance their supernatural abilities. On top of the pressures of college life, they discover an ancient evil that forces them to undergo a crash course in the occult for the sake of the world!

The first issue of Blackwood features a variant cover by Becky Cloonan. Blackwood #1 of 4 goes on sale May 30, 2018.
