All Eight Eyes: Foxe and Kowalski Bringing an Eight-Legged Creature Series to Dark Horse
Dark Horse Comics has announced a brand-new limited series from Eisner-nominated author Steve Foxe titled All Eight Eyes. The new series brings together the talents of Foxe and artist Piotr Kowalski, colorist Brad Simpson, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Together, the creators will bring readers a new vision that combines two of the most exciting things within the horror genre as they bring the terrors of a creature feature to giant monsters for one kick-ass series.
Dark Horse‘s description of All Eight Eyes reads:
“All Eight Eyes takes readers back to the forgotten corners of post-9/11 New York City, where college dropout Vin Spencer floats through life in a drug-and-party-fueled haze until one terrible night sweeps him into a drifter’s reckless war against the giant eight-legged horrors stalking the city’s most vulnerable residents.”
Speaking of his love for giant-animal horror and the ode to this series to the thrills that come with it, Foxe also shares the series touches on the changes in NYC, saying:
“I’ve been obsessed with giant-animal horror stories ever since seeing Them! and Gila! as a kid. All Eight Eyes is both an ode to the thrills of watching oversized predators chow down on humans and a reckoning with how much NYC has changed—not always for good—since the turn of the century, drawing on my own time in the East Village and Alphabet City. I’m so thrilled to be making this arachnid gross-out alongside Piotr, Brad, and Hass. The detail Piotr brings to not just the creepy-crawly aspects of the book, but to every chipped brick and sticky sidewalk of NYC, is unmatched, and Brad and Hass match his skill page for page.”
In what is sure to be a dark and thrilling creature feature for fans who enjoy Arachnophobia or Eight Legged Freaks, the series ensures that tension and uneasiness will skitter up and down your spine as you experience the harrowing tale following the events of 9/11 in New York City. Following its single-issue release, a collected edition will be released including the entire four-issue series, a pinup section with art from James Stokoe, Martin Simmonds, David Romero, and Trevor Henderson. It will also feature a sketchbook section which will all be available on November 8, 2023.
Of course, you probably won’t want to wait that long to have this new series spin its web around you so be sure to pick up All Eight Eyes #1 at your favorite local comic shop or digitally on April 19, 2023.
