Black Violet, Act III: The Un-Natural Order

Black Violet Trailer from Fifth House Ensemble on YouTube.

The thrilling conclusion to Black Violet, 5HE’s landmark collaboration with graphic novelist Ezra Claytan Daniels, returns by popular demand! Our story takes place in the year 1665, amidst one of the most terrifying passages of London’s history. The last major outbreak of Plague is decimating the populace. In an act of superstitious desperation, the Lord Mayor declares the city’s Black Cats at fault. Just when it seems the Natural Order is about to be restored, Violet’s recent experiences remind her that there are more noble goals than the preservation of normalcy. Bolstered by newfound confidence, she enlists an old friend for a final quest.
