Black Road Leads to Success


Black Road #1 is a big hit. So big, in fact, that Image Comics is taking the Brian Wood/Gary Brown/Dave McCaig collaboration back for a second printing. In Black Road #1, readers meet Magnus the Black—neither clean nor sober, neither Christian nor Pagan—but a man true to his word. When a ranking official under his care is brutally murdered, he’s prepared to hunt the killers to the frozen tip of Norway, religious war be damned.

Black Road #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android and Google Play. Black Road #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code MAR168527) and Black Road #2 (Diamond Code MAR160557) will arrive in stores on Wednesday, May 18. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, April 25th.
