Tony Fleecs Art Directing Homage Cover Program for Skybound’s Dark Ride

Skybound Entertainment has announced a new variant cover program for the upcoming 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.

To celebrate the inspiration of the series, Skybound has teamed up with Stray Dogs co-creator Tony Fleecs to direct the variant cover program that will release incentive homage poster variant covers that pay tribute to the classics that inspire the amusement park horror series. These variant covers will be released as 1:25 incentive covers and will span the first four issues of Dark Ride. Skybound will team up with an ensemble of superstar artists to provide art for the variant covers beginning with Stray Dogs co-creator Trish Forstner with Agnes Garbowska, Andy Price, and Dennis Culver joining for the next issues.

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.”

Fleecs shares their experience leading them to take on this task, saying:

“I have a secret superpower, and I didn’t know it was something I could really do until we did approximately 1 million horror movie covers for Stray Dogs; I know how to do the logo part of an homage image… maybe better than anyone in the game. I’ve been friends with Josh Williamson for years and I think he really dug the horror movie covers Trish Forstner and I had done on our book Stray Dogs. 

He asked if we could bring that kind of thing to Dark Ride but sort of in reverse: Instead of cartoon versions of horror posters, horror versions of cartoon posters. So, of course, I called up some of my favorite artists. I’m so excited to be working on this project and to be able to bring a bunch of great artist friends with me.” 

Dark Ride #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on October 5th, 2022. Check out the covers below:
