Powerhouse creators team up for all-new series BLACK CLOUD this April

Ivan Brandon, Jason Latour, Greg Hinkle, and Matt Wilson launch new fantasy series

Writers Ivan Brandon (DRIFTER, Wolverine) and Jason Latour (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Spider-Gwen) team up with artist Greg Hinkle (THE RATTLER, AIRBOY) and colorist Matt Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, PAPER GIRLS) for all-new dark fantasy series BLACK CLOUD this April from Image Comics.

“I think building this book has taken us all by surprise,” said Brandon. “This team makes my jaw drop, and it’s been a surreal experience watching all of our different tastes and ideas link up to build something that feels like more than the sum of its parts. This is very different from anything we’ve ever done before. It’s invigorating to be part of it.”

Hinkle added: “I’m thrilled to get to work with so many folks that I’ve looked up to for so long. It’s a learning experience in the best possible way, and I’m really excited to get to share the results.”

Zelda was born in a world of dreams, and hers burned bigger than anyone had ever seen. Now she’s on the run in our world, the dreams broken in her hands. But the pieces are for sale, the rich and the powerful are buying, and suddenly her world isn’t the only place Zelda’s running from.

“Even though it’s conceived as a pretty unfettered comic book kind of idea, BLACK CLOUD just seems to grow to fit and reflect the life that’s happening around us in real time,” said Latour. “With each passing day, we’re reminded more and more of how the stories we consume and tell ourselves really do define our world. Just like real life, this is a story about fact and fiction fighting for supremacy—only here, one of them has a lightning sword.”

Dreams come true—and today, they go to war.

BLACK CLOUD #1 (Diamond code: FEB170540) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, April 5th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, March 13th.

Advance praise for BLACK CLOUD:

“Ambitious as hell—and lovely to look at, too. Hinkle and Wilson make magic together. If you’re a fan of Image’s CASANOVA, this is a must-buy!”
—Kelly Sue DeConnick (BITCH PLANET, PRETTY DEADLY)

“Making your dreams real is never easy, but with splashy art and spiky writing, BLACK CLOUD reminds us of the beauty and power of imagination in dark times.”
—Cliff Chiang (PAPER GIRLS, Wonder Woman)

“Brandon, Latour, Hinkle, Wilson, and the human underpinnings of story. A dream book, in every way.” —Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, Darth Vader)
