Two weeks ago, Bleeding Cool broke the news about The Dark Room, an original graphic novel by X-Men writer Gerry Duggan, Buffy and Angel artist Scott Buoncristiano, and colorist to the stars Tamra Bonvillain, from Image Comics. To be published on the 24th of June 2022, it is described thus;
The hunt for a camera containing an undeveloped photo of the face of true evil threatens to wipe out New York City one chilly autumn evening. Doune Mahoney is the curator of a private collection of extremely dangerous cursed objects, and her night's about to go to hell. Werewolves, secret societies, blessed animals, cursed objects, and more in a fantasy horror comedy from X-Men and Deadpool writer GERRY DUGGAN, your new favorite artist SCOTT BUONCRISTIANO, and color artist extraordinaire TAMRA BONVILLAIN. Take a deep dive into THE DARK ROOM, a world the creators will be returning to for many years. Includes the first appearance of your new favorite characters, including Walt, the dancing bones of Times Square, and his blessed boom box.
Now Image Comics has gone and made it official, sending out a look ahead at The Dark Room for June. With some visuals and some quotes;
"Collaborating with Scott and Tamra has been one of the great joys of the last year," said Duggan. "It combines so many things I love: monsters, photography, ancient evils, a werewolf, New York City, and the skeleton of a young man that died breakdancing in the mid-eighties. Scott is going to be your new favorite artist, and if you don't have fun with this comic, you're at least a little dead on the inside."
Dounia Mahoney is no ordinary broker of antiquities, she sees the world's many blessings and curses and tries to keep cursed items out of the wrong hands. She and her friends set out to hunt for a camera containing an undeveloped photo of the face of true evil threatens to wipe out New York City one chilly autumn evening. If you didn't already want to read it, there's also a werewolf and the dancing bones of Times Square with a haunted boom box. The comic is pure, uncut fun.
Buoncristiano added: "I couldn't be happier that my first comic is a hardcover graphic novel published by Image Comics, the best place for creator-owned comics."
