Hermes Press proudly announces the best stories from its complete reprint of Gold Key Comics’ television tie-in of the legendary supernatural suspense series Dark Shadows just in time for the release of the new big screen Tim Burton version of the show starring Johnny Depp. Now fans can get in the mood for the upcoming film by reliving twelve of the best Dark Shadows comic books all over again. For those who are curious about Dark Shadows this is the perfect introduction as it will be available two months before the release date of the film.
The forerunner to today’s immensely popular vampire-themed television programs and theatrical films, Dark Shadows still garners serious attention as one of the most memorable TV shows of the last forty years. The comic books collected in this volume are completely digitally restored and present twelve complete issues, carefully selected from the entire thirty-five book run of the feature, presenting archetypal tales of vampires, werewolves, and the supernatural. The stories contained in this collection are beautifully crafted; they are the perfect companion for fans of the show, but they stand on their own as fine examples of compelling and effective comic book storytelling. This book showcases the best of the classic Gold Key Dark Shadows books together with a huge photo supplement and informative essays on the series.
