DARK HORSE BOOK OF HAUNTINGS
The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, a cornerstone in Dark Horse's new horror line, debuts in August.
Hauntings, a 96-page hardcover, is filled with original ghost stories by some of the most respected names in comics. Featuring all-new material, Hauntings is the first in Dark Horse's line of original horror graphic novels in the hardcover format.
"I love the variety. There's no book like this!" Hauntings editor Scott Allie said. "This has a lot to offer anyone who loves horror stories, but it's also got some of the best comics talent you could ask for. And it should appeal to anyone who loves cool little books like the Lemony Snicket series."
Mike Mignola provides the longest story in Hauntings, his only new Hellboy adventure in 2003. P. Craig Russell adapts Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson's return to comics, and Paul Chadwick teams with his longtime Concrete editor Randy Stradley for a creepy short story about a haunted suit. In the strangest, and most touching, entry in the book, Jill Thompson and Evan Dorkin recount the legend of a haunted doghouse.
Additional features in Hauntings include a Victorian ghost story illustrated by Gary Gianni, an interview with real-life sťance medium L. L. Dreller, a new Devil's Footprints story and contributions from international artists Uli Oesterle and Lucas Maragnon.
The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings is on sale Aug, 20 and will cost $14.95.
