The Black Ghost is an all-new, creator-owned five-issue mini-series by co-writers Alex Segura and Monica Gallagher, with art by George Kambadais, colors by Ellie Wright, and letters by Taylor Esposito, coming to ComiXology Originals this week.

With the debut covers by Greg Smallwood, with subsequent covers by fan-favorite artists Bill Sienkiewicz, Francesco Francavilla and Veronica Fish, Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and ComiXology Unlimited members get to read the debut issue for free. Here’s your preview of this launch issue.
Lara Dominguez is a journalist chasing that one, big story. After a stint in the Middle East, the alcoholic reporter moves from her hometown of Miami to Creighton – a mid-Atlantic city that’s seen better days. She needs a huge, viral scoop that’ll send her into the journalistic stratosphere. Her target? Uncovering the identity of The Black Ghost – a masked vigilante trying to take down the wealthy oligarchs carving up the fading metropolis. But as she searches for the breakthrough story she desperately needs, Lara will have to navigate the corruption of her adopted city, the uncertainties of virtue, and her own personal demons.
