SPACE IS PROFOUNDLY TERRIFYING IN
JOHN LAYMAN AND AFU CHAN’S OUTER DARKNESS
Eisner Award-winning writer John Layman (CHEW, LEVIATHAN) artist Afu Chan (Immortal Iron Fists, Spera), and letterer Pat Brosseau (MANIFEST DESTINY, EVOLUTION) team up for OUTER DARKNESS, an all-new sci-fi/horror series coming this November from Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment.
“Thanks to Afu Chan and Skybound, we’ve succeeded in making OUTER DARKNESS as perfect and beautiful as I’d envisioned it to be since finishing Chew,” said Layman. “I’m so unbelievably excited that OUTER DARKNESS is being announced to the world. I’m absolutely in love with this book.”
OUTER DARKNESS #1
Final Retail cutoff order: OCTOBER 22, 2018
In-stores: NOVEMBER 14, 2018
In OUTER DARKNESS, humankind has successfully colonized the galaxy. But during our interstellar travels, we discovered a terrifying secret out in the vast reaches of space…
Enter Captain Joshua Rigg and the crew of the starship Charon, who will encounter demonic possessions, hauntings, and cosmic horror as they embark on a desperate rescue mission into the Outer Darkness of space—where everything wants to kill them.
“It was scary, in good way, working with John Layman and Skybound, especially on a comic filled with monsters and in space where nobody can hear you,” said Chan. “I am always on the edge of my seat while drawing these pages, and I can’t wait for people to experience the ride when reading OUTER DARKNESS. It is the best work I’ve done yet.”
OUTER DARKNESS #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 7th.
