Uli Troy is a historian working at the secret White House Storage facility, somewhere in Maryland. He never thought he'd stumble upon one of the most explosive secrets American Presidents have managed to keep under wraps: a music box, which stayed in the Oval Office for 200 years and recorded every conversation in the room, unbeknownst to any soul! The Black Box was produced in 2011 and similarly remained hidden for over a decade. Fabrice Sapolsky had just finished co-writing a Spider-Man Noir mini-series for Marvel and Tom Lyle (Scarlet Spider, Robin) was looking to re-enter the comic book game after a five year hiatus. Unfortunately, Tom passed away in November 2019. Prior to his untimely passing, he and Fabrice made plans to bring The Black Box back with this original tale, plus new ones that they would co-write. In 2022, this story finally sees light.
