At the same time, family patriarch Roman Black is troubled about a decision he needs to make. To ease his mind, he travels to the family crypt to have a conversation with his ancestors about what he must do and why it must be soon.

As the investigation into the deaths heats up (literally), a young woman frantically makes her way to the Black Manor with magical pursuers behind her. When Roman Black intervenes to save the woman, he makes a decision that will have repercussions that no one imagined.

The Story: Cullen Bunn has always intrigued with interesting and unusual stories. I’ve always been a fan of the new and unexpected worlds he creates and the strange inhabitants of them. This is no exception. With this first issue, Bunn and co-writer Brian Hurtt have established the characters and their motivations as well as begin multiple mysteries that drew me in as a reader. I really want to see where this story goes and I found myself immersed in this world and the turns the story and characters take.

The Art: Tyler Crook’s art is great. I love the style of the pages and panels and how he moves the story along visually. Can’t wait to see more.
