Dark Ride: Try To Survive the World’s Scariest Rides in New Skybound Comic Series
Skybound Entertainment has announced a new series titled Dark Ride. The horror-themed comic series combines the scariest genre on Earth with the scariest place on Earth as writer Joshua Williamson, artist Andrei Bressan, and colorist Adriano Lucas introduce us to the theme park aptly named Devil Land.
Skybound‘s description of Dark Ride reads:
“Devil Land has been the world’s premiere horror-themed amusement park for over 50 years, home to the scariest ride ever created – The Devil’s Due. But when lifelong fan Owen Seasons begins his first day on the job, he will discover the true horrors happening behind the scenes, the truth about the park’s reclusive creator Arthur Dante and that the job of his dreams might just be a living nightmare.”
Speaking of the series and being able to combine two of his obsessions, Williamson said:
“Two of my biggest obsessions have always been HORROR…and AMUSEMENT PARKS. So, I had to find a way to combine them into something new. It’s a dream book I’ve been working on for a LONG time and it’s been awesome to finally pull it together with Andrei and the whole Birthright team!
It’s great to get back to horror after Nailbiter ended, and here we dive into some new themes with horror: What is scary in today’s world? How can you create something scary when every day we’re living in a horror show? Those are the themes I wanted to explore with DARK RIDE. Amusement Parks are meant to be a place of FUN…but here we really bring the HORROR.”
Bressan talks about the hive mind that has become of the Birthright creative team, saying:
“It’s safe to say that we’re heading home! I’m really happy to be reunited with the rest of the Birthright clan once again! Hell! We usually tell people we are a team, but in fact, we are a living, breathing creature! And a hungry one too! At first you had us brandishing swords…but now, this time around…well…horror, right?
I remember reading something that says ‘In horror, the surface always lies. Nothing is what it seems to be.’ So, take this and mix it up with an amusement park. You think you’re playing and having fun, but you’re actually flirting with Death. And here, Death blinks back at you!”
Dark Ride will make its first appearance in the pages of Skybound X #25 on July 20th, 2022, and Dark Ride #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on October 5th, 2022. Check out the cover reveal below:
