LOS ANGELES 10/11/2022 — Skybound announced today that Dark Ride #1, the debut issue of the buzzed about new horror comic book series from the iconic Birthright team of Joshua Williamson (Batman, Dark Crisis) and Andrei Bressan (Justice League Incarnate) has sold out at comic book shops and will return with a second printing on November 9, 2022.
“We were so excited to welcome readers into Devil Land and the world of horror that Joshua and Andrei have unleashed on this theme park, and it looks like the Dante family and their beloved minions have found their fans," said series editor Amanda LaFranco. "We're thrilled that DARK RIDE has connected with readers and are excited to show off this second printing cover featuring favorite park mascot Danny D. Evil at his most maniacal. We have so many more scares, demons, and devils coming your way!”
Featuring a brand-new second printing variant cover by Bressan and series colorist Adriano Lucas, Dark Ride #1 kicks off a thrilling plunge into murder, mayhem, and sinister family secrets in this all-new original series.
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.
The Dark Ride #1 Second Printing Variant (Diamond Code AUG228502) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
