Dark Horse Comics has announced that acclaimed horror writer James Tynion IV will team up with the publisher to bring a new line of comics to readers. Tynion IV has penned hit series such as Something is Killing the Children, The Department of Truth, and The Nice House on the Lake and will look to expand his long list of projects that delve deep into the underbelly of the horror genre and what Tynion IV refers to “true weird.”
Together, Tynion IV and Dark Horse look to bring a new line of creator-owned stories that include “weird non-fiction” and “coming-of-age monster stories” as well as previously published works from the mind of Tynion IV. It all starts with the upcoming series Blue Book and The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos in 2023. Both of these stories were previously released on Tynion IV’s Substack newsletter and will now be available in print for the first time.
