No One is As They Seem – New Horror Series from Image!

Four issues of perception altering horror come from Image Comics/Shadowline this March!

BERKELEY, CA – 4 February
2010 – FADE TO BLACK, a new horror miniseries from Image Comics/Shadowline by
ZOMBIE COP writer Jeff Mariotte and internationally acclaimed illustrator
Danielle Serra, promises to take its readers on a winding, twisted trail in
which first impressions are always wrong.
“The characters of FADE TO
BLACK are actors, shooting a film on location.  They’re young, wealthy, beautiful and spoiled, and
everything they know about the wilderness comes from a script until they run
into the Children of the Radiant Night, a cannibal cult using the desert for
reasons of their own, and the script is out the window,” Mariotte said.  “Danielle’s use of shape, line and
light took the story down a darker and scarier path than I ever imagined when I
wrote it. While there are moments of humor, when the suspense ratchets up, it’s
really terrifying and it’s all thanks to Dani’s special vision.”
FADE TO BLACK is an object
lesson in not accepting anything at face value.  What at first appears to be five young people on a
wilderness trek experience turns out to be something very different. On their
own, with no specialized training or skills, our five heroes need to figure out
how to survive… or not.
FADE TO BLACK #1, a 32-page
full color comic with a cover price of .50, will be available for order in
the January issue of Previews and goes on sale March 17th.
