PORTLAND, Ore. 02/15/2022 — Bestselling writer Gerry Duggan (X-Men, Deadpool) teams with acclaimed illustrator Scott Buoncristiano (Angel, Angel + Spike) and lauded colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Once & Future, Wonder Woman) for an upcoming action/adventure/horror and humor mashup titled, The Dark Room. This original graphic novel is set to hit shelves in June, 2022 from Image Comics.

“Collaborating with Scott and Tamra has been one of the great joys of the last year,” said Duggan. “It combines so many things I love: monsters, photography, ancient evils, a werewolf, New York City, and the skeleton of a young man that died breakdancing in the mid-eighties. Scott is going to be your new favorite artist, and if you don’t have fun with this comic, you’re at least a little dead on the inside.”

Dounia Mahoney is no ordinary broker of antiquities, she sees the world’s many blessings and curses and tries to keep cursed items out of the wrong hands. She and her friends set out to hunt for a camera containing an undeveloped photo of the face of true evil threatens to wipe out New York City one chilly autumn evening. If you didn’t already want to read it, there’s also a werewolf and the dancing bones of Times Square with a haunted boom box. The comic is pure, uncut fun.

Buoncristiano added: “I couldn’t be happier that my first comic is a hardcover graphic novel published by Image Comics, the best place for creator-owned comics.”
