Caitlín R. Kiernan and Steve Lieber's Alabastor features in Dark Horse's Free Comic Book Day giveaway.
DARK HORSE'S FREE COMIC BOOK DAY OFFERINGS TO INCLUDE A SPECIAL FOUR-PAGE STORY FROM CAITLÍN R. KIERNAN AND STEVE LIEBER'S ALABASTER
FEBRUARY 27, MILWAUKIE, OR—One of Dark Horse's most-anticipated new series premiered in the company's flagship anthology last week in Dark Horse Presents #9.
Dark Horse celebrates this event with additional news today that Caitlín R. Kiernan's highly anticipated new series will now be included in both of Dark Horse's Free Comic Book Day books, with two pages in each book, to expose this exciting new series to as wide an audience as possible!
Alabaster is based on Caitlín R. Kiernan's fan-favorite Dancy Flammarion stories, a dark fantasy series centered around a teenage protagonist of striking appearance and hidden, terrible depths. For nearly as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Dancy Flammarion has fought monsters, cutting a bloody swath through the demons and dark things of the world, aimed like a weapon by a merciless seraph more taskmaster than guardian.
This special four-page story, told across Dark Horse's two FCBD offerings, will give readers a compelling glimpse into Dancy's world and the blurry line that separates her from the angels she serves—and the monsters she hunts.
Look for Alabaster: Shelter in the back of both Dark Horse's Star Wars/Serenity and Buffy/The Guild Free Comic Book Day comics on Saturday, May 5. Remember, you have to pick up both to read the whole story!
Pick up a copy of Dark Horse Presents #9 at your local comic shop for a special sneak peek at the highly anticipated series Alabaster: Wolves!

About the Author - SuperginraiX
SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
