Locke & Key's Joe Hill And Gabriel Rodríguez On 'Tales From The Darkside' From IDW

unnamed (2)

Locke & Key's Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez and working together again on Tales from the Darkside,  a comic-book revival of the horror anthology TV series of the same name.

The four-issue series will feature Hill's re-imagining ofTales for a contemporary take on the cult classic. Structured to have the scope of Locke & Key while exploring a vast, underlying mythology, Tales aims to unfold a cohesive universe made up of each individual issue. According to the creative team, these stories will draw inspiration from the TV series that it has spawned from while also taking a meta approach to the material.

Joe Hil explains,

This is the show that could've been. The original Tales from the Darkside was a fun, bleak little spin on the Twilight Zone style anthology. My idea is to give readers a little more. Every story is meant to stand alone, but gradually, you will come to see how they all connect, to tell a single larger story.

Charles P. Wilson III  will contribute variant covers.

 

To be published from IDW in June…
