The Madness of the Darkhold Grips Iron Man and Blade in New Tie-In Issues

'Darkhold: Iron Man' and 'Darkhold: Blade' arrive in October!

This September, a new mystical Marvel saga begins in DARKHOLD ALPHA #1!

Written by Steve Orlando with art by Cian Tormey, this extraordinary one-shot will kick off an all-new story centered around the Scarlet Witch and Doctor Doom as they prevent the recently resurfaced Darkhold text from unleashing chaos on the Marvel Universe. The highly-anticipated epic will be told through a series of one-shots, each centering on a different hero recruited to combat the Darkhold’s horrifying effects. Two of these mind-melting adventures will release this October: DARKHOLD: IRON MAN #1 and DARKHOLD: BLADE #1!

Ryan North, the brilliant mind behind THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL, teams up with artist Guillermo Sanna to bring you the body-horror tale of the century in DARKHOLD: IRON MAN! Called forth to face the dread god Chthon, Iron Man reads from the ancient ill-fated text known as the Darkhold…and it changes the course of his entire life. The armor that has saved him countless times is about to become a prison—one whose only escape is a fate worse than death.

Emmy-nominated writer Daniel Kibblesmith, known for his bold work on LOKI, and artist Federico Sabbatini will bring Marvel’s resident vampire hunter into the action in DARKHOLD: BLADE! After reading from the cursed Darkhold, Blade attempts to enter Chthon’s dimension and stop the ancient god from destroying the Multiverse. But reading the book has changed all their lives and histories…and for Blade, the consequences are far-reaching. Vampires rule the world, and he rules over them all. But there are some heroes left—and Blade is not as omniscient as he thinks.
