Black Sight

A Relentlessly Unnerving Psychological Thriller About a Globe-trotting Young Woman

Set in the 1960s

Available Digitally from Comixology Originals Beginning September 26, 2023


September 12, 2023—New York, NY— From writer Stephanie Phillips (Harley Quinn, Grim, We Only Kill Each Other) and artist Conor Boyle (Hookjaw, Mindset) comes, Black Sight, a relentlessly unnerving psychological thriller about a globe-trotting young American woman set in the 1960s. This 5-issue comic book series is lettered by Tom Napolitano and features striking covers by Dave Johnson (100 Bullets, Batman, The Good Asian). Black Sight #1 begins September 26, 2023 and will be available monthly from Amazon’s Comixology Originals exclusive digital content line.


“This story is based on real-life black sites that existed post-World War II to carry out the nefarious work that was started by Nazi researchers during the war,” says writer Stephanie Phillips. “I was interested in telling a claustrophobic horror story about what happens when someone is taken to one of these black sites, and Conor Boyle felt like the perfect artistic partner to help bring that to life.”  


While traveling alone across 1960s Europe, young, vibrant, and lonely American Alex Greer walks into a club in Amsterdam and suddenly her life is changed forever. When she wakes up the next morning, she finds herself accused of murder and later imprisoned in what she discovers is a secret CIA black site that’s used for psychological experimentation. This terrifying thriller follows her attempts to not only escape, but to separate stark reality from mental manipulation. Can she free herself and get away with her mind and soul intact?


Boyle’s painting deftly illustrates the fear, tension, and confusion of the protagonist and creates an atmospheric and dreamlike harsh reality that is palpable throughout the story.

Black Sight includes a backup story in issues #1-2 that enhances the main story spotlighting a character called “Glickman,” written by newcomer Daleyna Abril, a student at the University of Tampa, and is illustrated in black and white by Italian artist Marco Fodera.
