Scott Snyder Launches the Dark Spaces Anthology at IDW

Scott Snyder will debut a chilling original comic book project in July: Dark Spaces, published by IDW Publishing.

Desperate people, desperate situations. In Dark Spaces, Snyder explores the decisions made—and irreversible actions taken—when the walls are closing in, when knuckles are white and teeth are bared. Each character-driven entry in the Dark Spaces anthology series is a fully contained, standalone story written by Scott Snyder. Championing the new generation of comic creators, Snyder will curate additional future projects fitting the Dark Spaces theme from promising young writers and artists.

The first series will debut with a scorching five-part heist entitled Dark Spaces: Wildfire, featuring painstakingly detailed artwork by rising star Hayden Sherman and colors by Ronda Pattison.

Dark Spaces: Wildfire is set six weeks into the slow burn of the historic Arroyo fire and introduces a crew of women from an inmate firefighting program risking everything on the frontlines. Their newest recruit—a white-collar convict with a deep network of shady dealers—discovers that they’re mere miles from a former associate’s abandoned mansion and proposes a plan to abandon their duties and hunt for riches under the cover of smoke and ash. The team must decide if they’re ready to jeopardize their one sure path back to normalcy for a score that would truly change their lives… But is this a flicker of fortune or a deadly trap?

Dark Spaces: Wildfire will be published monthly from July through November, with subsequent to-be-announced Dark Spaces storylines debuting in 2023. The first issue of Wildfire will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, featuring artwork by Hayden Sherman, Andrea SorrentinoLiana Kangas, and Tula Lotay.
