The First TPB of A Voice in the Dark is Coming Out in July

If you're a worthless piece of crap that hasn't been reading it in single issue format, now's your chance to redeem yourself.




We've told you time and time again that A Voice in the Dark by 2012 Outhouse Comics Industrialist of the Year Larime Taylor is a book you should be reading. Since it first launched as a Kickstarter project, it's received near universal acclaim from basically every website out there, but, most importantly, from us.

Are you reading it? If not, you can rectify that mistake on July 8th because that's when the first trade comes out. I highly recommend it.

THE MIND OF A KILLER IS A VOICE IN THE DARK IN NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL

Psychological thriller in stores this summer

Every day, college student Zoey wakes up and counts the days — the days that she’s resisted temptation, controlled her darker impulses, and resisted what she fears is her true nature. The days since she killed someone. A VOICE IN THE DARK by Larime Taylor, a new graphic novel from Image Comics and Top Cow’s Minotaur Press imprint, delves into the mind of the killer, one who worries about making a good impression on her roommates and just wants to protect her friends. It will be in stores this summer.

But even as Zoey is engaged in her internal turmoil, something sinister is at work in the small university community — one that Zoey suspects she’s given a voice to in her late-night campus radio show.

A VOICE IN THE DARK is written and drawn by Larime Taylor, a “mouth artist” who was born with arthrogryposis. With use of his limbs severely limited, Taylor draws, shades, and letters his comics using a Wacom Cintiq tablet, holding the stylus in his mouth.

Taylor described his protagonist in an interview with Comic Book Resources. “She's not a psychopath or sociopath, she has friends, and her daily life is complicated by these compulsions she's had since her earliest childhood memories,” he said. “They've always been there. Now that she's actually acted on them, though, she's losing her grip on them. She's daydreaming and fantasizing about killing people in the middle of class, or even a conversation. She snaps out of it and realizes it was just her imagination, but she's not sure how much longer it'll just be her imagination.”

Combining the gripping psychological exploration of Dexter and the dry wit of Heathers, A VOICE IN THE DARK VOLUME 1 is a penetrating look at a young woman fighting to seem like what she so desperately wants to be: normal. But her world just may give Zoey a reason to let her inner demons out. It will be in comic book stores on June 25 and arrive in bookstores on July 8.
