In news that made me very happy today, AHOY Comics has announced that writer Eric Palicki and artist Wendell Cavalcanti’s queer-inclusive paranormal mystery comic book series Black’s Myth will be coming back for a second season later this year!
Starring werewolf PI Janie Jones “Strummer” Mercado and her Djinn assistant Ben Si’lat, Black’s Myth season 1 had the two trying to uncover an interesting mystery involving the “supernatural underground” of Los Angeles. I enjoyed reading the first season (consisting of five issues) and I can’t wait to see what the upcoming sequel will have in store for readers!
While we wait for the second season, fans can go ahead and collect Black’s Myth volume 1 as a trade paperback come February 15, 2022, from bookstores. It will be available in comic book shops on February 16, 2022. The trade paperback release will feature an introduction by CHEW co-creator, writer John Layman.
According to the promo material for the second season, the story will involve Rainsford Black going missing during his search for a grimoire dating to the 1600s. Apparently, said grimoire is supposed to allow Rainsford to summon demons to hunt and add to the elder’s growing collection of trophies. Strummer and Ben will be tasked with stopping him, of course.
Again, why hasn’t Black’s Myth been picked up for a live-action adaptation yet? I’ll even take an animated streaming show!
“Our first story belonged to Strummer and Ben, but we called the book Black’s Myth for a reason, and we have so much more of Rainsford Black’s story to reveal,” shared Palicki. “What compels him to hunt (and collect) monsters, and what kind of case could possibly bring Strummer back into his orbit? Volume 2 promises answers, along with the return of everyone’s favorite Minotaur.”
Cavalcanti said, “Werewolf, Djinn, vampires, Minotaur, Los Angeles, the Dodge Charger, and Grim — attaboy! I missed you guys. Here we go again!”
Similar to the first season, the second one will feature covers by Liana Kangas (Trve Kvlt, Star Wars Adventures, She Said Destroy, BLACK AF: Devil’s Dye).
I will definitely be adding Black’s Myth season 2 to my weekly comic book wrapups. And if you haven’t already, I recommend that you read Black’s Myth volume one ASAP!
