Dahlia in the Dark: Mad Cave Studios Takes Readers Into A Supernatural Fantasy Series This December
Mad Cave Studios will be bringing a fantasy action-packed series titled Dahlia in the Dark. The series will have readers follow the supernatural conflict that a delivery driver stumbled upon and will enlist the talents of writer Joe Corallo, artist Andrea Milana, letterer Micah Myers, and cover art by Chris Shehan.
Corallo returns to Mad Cave after having collaborated with the publisher on Becstar and an anthology series created in support of Ukraine titled Lower Your Sights. Milana also looks to the series as their entry point into the industry as their first comic book work.
Mad Cave’s description of Dahlia in the Dark reads:
“A washed up hitman, Donny Dahlia, takes one last job transporting a package cross country in the hopes of seeing his estranged daughter again. Little does he know this job is going to get him caught in the middle of a war between the fairy realms that could determine the fate of humankind.”
“I was thrilled when Mad Cave not only reached out to me about writing another book for them, but that they wanted me to work on something that was in many ways a departure from what I had done with Becstar,” said Corallo (He/Him). “Crime noir and urban fantasy are genres I’ve always found joy in, so to be able to mash them up and run wild with them was a real treat. And while this book is in many ways different from Becstar, it’s still filled with a lot of personal character moments and even more action!”
“At first I was a bit awed about working on Dahlia in the Dark as it’s the very first comic book series I got the chance to work on!” said Milana (He/Him). “Regardless, I was so excited about it: the story written by Joe got me over the initial hurdle and got me so passionate about the project that drawing that world became almost automatic. I hope my work can convey even a little bit of that passion!”
Dahlia in the Dark #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on December 7, 2022.
