New Dark Shadows Comic Book Collection

Hermes Press have sent us information on their latest Dark Shadows title, once again drawing from the archives of Gold Key's 1960s comic books. Dark Shadows: The Best of the Original Series is a 336 page trade paperback collection of twelve original stories, featuring digitally-restored artwork and bonus content.

Beginning with the very first issue, published back in 1969, the book also features the contents of issues 4, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17-18, 24 and 31-33. These have been selected by comics historian Dr. Jeff Thompson, who comments that these entries each "feature a moment, a nuance, an illustration, or a turn of phrase that distinguishes it... these are the twelve greatest
Dark Shadows comic book stories." 

The book is due out at the end of the month and can be pre-ordered at a discount price by clicking here.

Great Classic cover feature on DARK SHADOWS: the illustration really grips you in. Love the brilliant chilly colors and BARNABAS looks bitey!! Hope to find this Classic DARK SHADOWS Illustration/Novel Comic at Barnes and Noble, too. Thanks!
