Dark Shadows: The Complete Series Volume One, second printing
Hermes Press proudly announces a second printing of volume one of its complete reprint of Gold Key Comics' television tie-in of the legendary supernatural suspense series Dark Shadows. Originally this volume was released in 2011 and quickly went out of print - fans have been clamoring for a second printing of this book ever since. Now with release of Hermes Press' reprint of the complete Dark Shadows paperback library titles -32 books in all - the demand for a new edition of Volume One has been even more intense.
The forerunner to today's immensely popular vampire-themed television programs and theatrical films, Dark Shadows still garners serious attention as one of the most memorable TV shows of the last forty years. A new television adaptation is also in the works.
Volume One in Hermes Press' completely digitally restored series presents issues #1 through #7 of the comic book title presenting archetypal tales of vampires, werewolves, and the supernatural. The stories contained in the volume are thoughtful and beautifully crafted; they are the perfect companion for fans of the show, but they stand on their own as fine examples of compelling and effective comic book storytelling.
The second edition of Dark Shadows Volume One presents scripts by Silver Age comic book writer Donald Arneson with artwork by Joe Certa.
In addition to reprinting the stories, Volume One contains a generous supplement of poster art, pin-ups, and documentary material from the show together with an essay about the history of Dark Shadows as well as other aspects of the show. Volume One will be available in August, 2020.
