Following an intriguing debut back in 2019, The Black Ghost will once again haunt your digital devices when it returns from Comixology Originals in August.
The new five issue miniseries by writers Alex Segura and Monica Gallagher, artist George Kambadais, colorist Ellie Wright, letterer Taylor Esposito and editor Greg Lockard will be collected by Dark Horse in January.
“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,” Segura said. “I could almost feel Monica and I looking at each other from across the country and thinking, ‘Well, what do we do now?'”
The story focuses on Lara Dominguez, a reporter who moves from Miami to the city of Creighton. There, she has to navigate the corruption of her adopted city, the uncertainties of virtue and her own personal demons — and become the “gritty activist” known as the Black Ghost.
“At the end of Season One Lara proved to have the capacity to be courageous even in her darkest moments,” Gallagher said. “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.”
The first issue of the miniseries debuts digitally on Amazon on Aug. 30, and the print collection from Dark Horse arrives Jan. 3.
