Dark Horse is the number one place to look for horror comics and they’ve been that way for some time and they’re not going to slow down.
We just received this teaser image from them about an upcoming project they’ll be releasing this fall entitled Colder. The series is written by Paul Tobin with art by Juan Ferreyra.
Colder tells the story of Declan Thomas whose story isn’t exactly normal.
Declan Thomas’s body temperature is dropping. He checks it every day, and it’s dropped from 98.6 to a current average in the high fifties. He never gets sick, never feels pain. He’s just an ex-inmate of an insane asylum that began operation in the 1890s, specializing in those poor souls deemed too dangerous for society. As to when Declan himself was admitted, the records were destroyed in a fire. His nurse has found references to him that go as far back as the 1940s…which is odd, since he doesn’t look a day over thirty.
“Horror and mystery are two things that have always fascinated me, and I wanted to bring those elements together in a story woven around what I consider one of my strongest tools as a writer, which is character. One facet of horror that I really wanted to explore is how the tension of horror is at its peak when it’s still a mystery. But…what if we had a chance to peek behind the curtain and into the darkened closet, and found that the truth is even worse?” Paul Tobin questioned in a press release.
The series hits shelves November 7th.
