Archie Comics is bringing the Black Hood back for season two. Long live the Black Hood!

Picking up where the previous series left off but also serving as the perfect jumping on point for new readers, THE BLACK HOOD #1: SEASON 2 continues the creator-driven approach to Dark Circle Comics’ reimagining of the classic Red Circle superheroes. Season 2 also promises to take The Black Hood out of his familiar surroundings of Philadelphia and into new, uncharted territories for the former cop-turned-vigilante.

“The exciting thing about this next season is that we’ll be taking the Hood on the road. The one thing he’s always had in his corner is his knowledge of the City of Philadelphia. But that won’t do him much good this time around,” said series writer Duane Swierczynski in a statement to the press. “I’m seriously excited about the Hood’s new antagonist, who is smart, focused, aggressive and relentless — pretty much the worst kind of person to have on your ass.”


Dark Circle Comics Editor Alex Segura also said we can expect to see even more books from this line in the future.

“I want to assure people that we are committed to these characters and these books. We are moving full-steam ahead on concluding the initial arcs of THE SHIELD and THE HANGMAN – with THE SHIELD #3 and THE HANGMAN’s fourth issue hitting in October. I’m also excited to announce that THE BLACK HOOD artist Greg Scott will be joining Adam Christopher and Chuck Wendig on the fourth issue of THE SHIELD, which will close out Victoria’s debut story in grand style. But keep your eyes peeled for THE SHIELD #3, which closes out artist Drew Johnson’s masterful run on the book – it’s his best issue yet. As for the future of Dark Circle, we’ll be making some cool announcements in the months following the launch of THE BLACK HOOD’s second season that should get fans jazzed for what’s to come.”

The Black Hood #1: Season 2 arrives in stores on September 21, 2016.
