"This book is the 8-year-old Rachel's dream come true. I wanted to make something that, had I found it on the shelves as a kid, would have been my favorite book of all time," says Rachel Deering, In the Dark editor and project manager. "I wanted to give this generation a chance to feel that macabre magic that held me spellbound when I picked up my first horror anthology comic, and I can only hope it serves the scare the crap outta readers, young and old, for years to come."
"Rachel has assembled an amazing team for In the Dark," said Chris Ryall, IDW's Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. "The book's successful Kickstarter campaign speaks to peoples' interest in this project, and I'm excited that IDW can help bring the book to an even wider audience."
Along with the terrifying original stories, this over 250-page hardcover will feature an introduction byNew York Times Bestselling author Scott Snyder and an in-depth look at the history of horror comics by comic book historian Mike Howlett.
