Dark Spaces: Dungeon Brings the Next Chilling Tale in Snyder and Sherman’s Anthology Series
The award-winning creators of Dark Spaces: Wildfire, Scott Snyder and Hayden Sherman, reunite to tell the story of a family that moves from the hustle and bustle of city life to the serenity of the woods of New Hampshire. The family finds themselves living in a twisted and horrifying dungeon with a threatening message on their property: “TELL NO ONE.” Welcome to Dark Spaces: Dungeon.
The latest in the award-winning line of anthology stories, Dark SPACES, curated by Snyder at IDW Publishing, focuses on character-driven, grounded psychological thrillers while also spotlighting rising stars in the comics industry. Snyder and Sherman are joined by colorist Patricio Delpeche, and letterer AndWorld Design. Sherman will be providing art to the main covers with variant covers by American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares artist Dustin Nguyen.
IDW‘s full description of Dungeon reads:
When a family moves from the busy city to the relaxing woods of New Hampshire, they’re hoping to find a quiet rural life. Instead, the family discovers a terrifying secret: a twisted and terrifying dungeon on their property with a threatening message: “TELL NO ONE.”
Now, the father will do anything to protect his family. Upon realizing anyone could be behind the depraved dungeon, fear and paranoia begin to take hold as he tries to discover the truth. Who can he trust? And just how far will he go to protect his family from the horrors of the dungeon?
Snyder shared what a highlight of his career it’s been exploring the world of Dark Spaces, saying:
“Getting to explore the worlds of DARK SPACES has been a career highlight without question, and doing so alongside my dear friend and trusted editor Mark Doyle just makes it all the better. The ability to forgo supernatural elements in favor of highlighting the true light and darkness of our reality has been able to take me back to basics in a truly exciting fashion.
I’ll say this – if DARK SPACES: WILDFIRE was modeled after noir, then DARK SPACES: DUNGEON is a stone-cold thriller. It might be the darkest story I’ve ever written, while at the same time some of the most fun it’s ever been developing a new series.”
“The fears that Scott is examining in DUNGEON are guttural, stomach churning, and (I have to imagine) entirely universal. It’s a whole different sort of story than WILDFIRE, while maintaining the grounded thriller core that defines much of DARK SPACES.”
Dark Spaces: Dungeon #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on October 11, 2023.
