...what better time to do a new comic book about Dark Shadows?
But, not the new movie version...they're doing the original 1960s tv series!
And who better to do the covers than one of our favorite Gothic-style artists, Francesco Francavilla?
TV’s original reluctant vampire, Barnabas Collins, laboring under his vampiric curse and haunted by dreams of his age-old lover and nemesis, Angelique, is one of the small screen’s most original horror creations.
The stories for the new comic book series pick up right where the narrative of the original ABC soaper left off in 1971, using the likenesses of the original actors.

There was a series of Gold Key Comics, published from 1969-1976, which is currently being reprinted in collected editions by Hermes Press...
Innovation Comics published a comic series based on the short-lived prime-time revival of the show in the early 1990s, some of which we will be re-presenting in October on our blog, True Love Comics Tales™.
The new series from Dynamite will be available in October!
