Exclusive Preview: Blackwood: The Mourning After #2

Do you think you know about magic schools? Well, Blackwood College is nothing like Hogwarts or Brakebills. This small mystic college only had a student body of four new supernaturally gifted students…until one of them died! Dennis was killed in the first Blackwood miniseries, shortly after he was cursed by the late Dean Ogden. Stephen, Wren, Reiko, and Acting Dean Colby were also cursed by Ogden. Now, their lives are tied to Blackwood itself, regardless of whether they want that or not.

However, Reiko isn’t willing to simply let Dennis stay dead. She’s already enlisted Wren and Stephen in a secret plot to bring Dennis back to life. Additionally, there’s a traitor on campus who may be coming for them all.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Blackwood: The Mourning After #2  Evan Dorkin and artists Veronica & Andy Fish catch up with Reiko’s risky plan. But even with Jamar’s help, Blackwood’s latest students are gonna need to visit an untapped source of mystic knowledge: the library!

Here’s the official description from Dark Horse Comics.

“As Blackwood College prepares to bury Dean Ogden, the students plot to raise Dennis from the dead, requiring them to take a trip to the morgue. This doesn’t leave any of our heroes much time to deal with feuding security teams, a missing mummy chimp, and a conspiracy of traitors planning Blackwood’s destruction. Wuh-oh!”

You can read the full preview in our gallery below. Blackwood: The Mourning After #2 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, March 11.
