"The Black Knight Reborn!" by Thomas and Purcell/Adkins. 22 pages.
Dane Whitman has discovered that he has inherited a castle in England. Once there, he is contacted by the spirit of the original owner, the Black Knight, Sir Percy of Scandia.

Before he died, Merlin cast a spell that Percy's heirs should inherit the ebon sword and spirit of the Black Knight to fight the spirit of Mordred, should it ever return.
