IMAGE COMICS DREAMS OF DARKCHYLDE

December 31, 1969

Collection Features Forward by Film Adaptation Director, John Carpenter

Berkeley,
CA - 20 June 2011 – Soon, DARKCHYLDE fans new and old will be able to
catch up with the accursed teen Ariel Chylde in DREAMS OF DARKCHYLDE
VOL.1 from Image Comics. The Dreams series is collected for the first
time with new art and cover by Randy Queen, and a special forward by
legendary master of horror John Carpenter, who is on board to direct the
film adaptation.

Ariel Chylde is a sweet-tempered girl with a
terrifying secret: She can become the horrendous creatures from her many
recurring nightmares. In DREAMS OF DARKCHYLDE VOL. 1, we go deeper into
the real world ghosts that haunt her psychological terrain, when a
fallen childhood friend returns as an angry poltergeist seeking Ariel’s
blood in a mad hunger for misguided revenge.

“2011 marks the 15th
anniversary of Ariel Chylde,†says creator and artist Randy Queen. â“So,
it is with great joy this rare collection of Darkchylde material is
made available for the first time in America with Image, and I’m
thrilled to have John Carpenter’s words open the volume. If you’re an
older fan, or newer fan, you’ll find something fresh to discover in
these haunted tales of the teen who can become the creatures from her
nightmares!”

DREAMS OF DARKCHYLDE VOL.1 (APR110419), a 136-page
full-color trade paperback, will be in stores on June 15th, for $16.99.
