Classic Comic Reprints Announced

Hermes Press has announced that it is to reprint the complete series of classic Gold Key Dark Shadows comics in a series of collector's hardcover books. Each volume will feature full-colour digitally restored strips plus bonus features, including poster reprints, documentary material from the show and new essays.

Hermes' news release for the series describes the stories as: "thoughtful and 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." Publisher Daniel Herman adds: "The classic Dark Shadows books have been out-of-print far too long. Our new series of complete reprints will remedy this situation and make the entire run available to old and new fans alike."

Dark Shadows: The Complete Series Volume One is available from March 2010; Provisional cover artwork is shown above. The 208 page hardcover book will retail at $49.99.

Update: Amazon are currently offering the book at a 35% discount from the retail price. To order, click here.

Cool! I never got any of the original comics, so this will be great!

That's great! I've only seen a few panels here and there so I'm looking forward to actually being able to read the comics.

Wow, that's awesome news and it's gonna be done in hardbook cover design: I like that! I hope that Barnes and Noble will also carry the DARK SHADOWS "Classic-Comic" Reprints/Hardbooks for order-purchase in their Stores, too. Thanks & look forward to the 1st DS volume release in 2010.
