Dark Horse Comics’ newest horror anthology weaves 16 tales of terror in a collection that could only be called a Nightmare Carnival.
A washed-up wrestler goes toe to toe with a strange new foe. A young lad’s eleventh birthday heralds the arrival of his bizarre new entourage. A suicidal diva just can’t seem to die. All of these queer marvels and more can be found at the Nightmare Carnival!
The publisher is making something of a habit of reviving the horror comic genre all by itself as of late and here we are with another anthology of stories that’ll give you a shiver.
Assembled by Hugo and Bram Stoker Award–winning editor Ellen Datlow, Nightmare Carnival boasts some big time stories from some big time talent including Terry Dowling, Priya Sharma, Dennis Danvers, and Nick Mamatas. Throw in an awesomely creepy cover illustration by E.M. Gist and you’ve got a collection that horror fans probably won’t want to miss out on.
Catch it on the racks on September 24th in comic shops and on October 7th in bookstores.
