THAT OLD BLACK MAGICK
INDIE NEWS-111519
A Year and a Half Later, Rucka & Scott are Bringing Black Magick Back

Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott's Black Magick is working towards a return to the racks. The series went on hiatus back in May 2018 with #11. Scott and Rucka are halfway through the next arc but the book will not return until they have enough issues to maintain a monthly release schedule. Scott and Rucka have known each other for 14 years well before she started working at DC. He was one of the writers at the company who were trying to get her to draw one of his books. When he left DC he mentioned doing creator-owned work and Black Magick was the book she wanted to work on. The initial plan was for the book to go 30 issues but the story seen in #6 means the book will go at least one issue past that. One of the major reasons for the delay is Rucka’s Hollywood commitments so Scott has kept busy doing other things while producing art for the title’s return. Three issues are already in the can with the plan of doing two more to finish an arc. It is expected that the book will take a three-month break before seeing the next arc. The new are will take place six months after #11. When the arc begins Rowan and Morgan will have been re-assigned partners and are not on speaking terms. The pilot script for a TV adaptation is done and as of now no studio has connected with the project.
