Blackwood College is back in session with Blackwood: The Mourning After. From Dark Horse comics, the series will consist of four issues, with the first releasing on Feb. 12, 2020. Created by Evan Dorkin, Veronica Fish and Andy Fish, the continuation of the fantasy series will examine the fallout of Dean Ogden and Dennis' deaths.
According to the story's official description,
Blackwood College is in mourning after the death of Dean Ogden and Dennis. The students have a lot to learn about these mysterious deaths and the repercussions left behind, but while they investigate, a traitor hides in their midst looking to bury the rest of the school too.
“I'm very happy to be able to return to the halls of Blackwood," said Dorkin. "I enjoy writing these characters and putting them through hell, and I love seeing how Veronica and Andy bring it all to life. Especially the dead things.”
“Evan is so great about taking a drawing I did or an idea we have and running with it, incorporating it where it works into the story—it’s a very rewarding collaboration," added Fish. "I'm so personally invested in these characters, the school as an entity itself and all the weird stuff surrounding it - there is so much story! It's so fun spending time in this world, hopefully that comes through.”
Created by Evan Dorkin, Veronica Fish and Andy Fish and distributed by Dark Horse Comics, Blackwood: The Mourning After #1 will drop on Feb. 12, 2020.
