TWO NEW CLASSIC DARK SHADOWS TITLES ARRIVE JUST IN TIME FOR THE PREMEIRE OF THE NEW TIM BURTON/ JOHNNY DEPP FILM
The big screen version of Dark Shadows will arrive on May 11 and the perfect companions to revisit the original, classic Dark Shadows TV show are here now from Hermes Press! In anticipation of the new film Hermes Press is releasing Dark Shadows: The Best of the Original Series ISBN 978-1-61345-016-1 ($49.99 full color, 336 page, the best twelve original Dark Shadows comic book stories) with art by Joe Certa and stories by D. J. Arneson and Arnold Drake together with the illustrated novella Dark Shadows Interrupted Voyage authored by D. J. Arneson with art by Joe Certa ISBN 978-1613450192 ($8.99, full color, 128 pages).
Dark Shadows the Best of the Original Series is the last word on the classic series of comic books published from 1968-1976; it contains twelve complete stories starting with issue #1 and includes issues # 4, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, 18, 24, 31, 32, concluding with #33. These stories were hand-picked by Dark Shadows historian Dr. Jeff Thompson. Thompson feels that these stories 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."
Dark Shadows Interrupted Voyage is a 128 page novel, extensively illustrated by artist Joe Certa, which takes the main character of the series, Barnabas Collins, back in time to 17th Salem, Massachusetts. It features everything fans of witches, vampires, and gothic romance could hope for, and more.
Both books can be read by old and new fans alike and provide the definitive comic book introduction to the classic original series. Available next week just in time for the new film version of this landmark TV show!

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.
