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.

IDW Announces Nine New Original Series in a New Initiative

IDW Publishing

IDW Publishing has announced a new initiative of new original comic series and projects by New York Times best-selling authors, some of the industry’s finest artists and writers, and newcomers. In the announcement, the nine are described as “first” indicating there’s more to come. Beginning with Scott Snyder’s Dark Spaces: Wildfire in July, IDW will be publishing new original projects on a monthly basis, reflecting a wide selection of genres: crime thriller, supernatural horror, science fiction, epic fantasy, and more.

The first nine projects announced include the following:

Dark Spaces: Wildfire, a thriller series written by Scott Snyder with art by Hayden Sherman, follows a group of female inmate firefighters deep into the smoldering California hills, where their desperate heist of a burning mansion will lead them to the score of a lifetime…or a deadly trap!

Trve Kvlt, a five-issue miniseries written by Scott Bryan Wilson with art by Liana Kangas, introduces Marty Tarantella, a down-on-his-luck loser whose last-ditch scheme to escape a lifetime of fast-food service sets him on a collision course with a cult of violent, Devil-worshiping lunatics!

Crashing, a five-issue miniseries written by Matthew Klein with art by Morgan Beem, throws open the doors of an emergency room filled with casualties of a superhuman war, where Rose Osler, a doctor on her own path of addiction and recovery, faces the most dangerous day of her medical career.

Earthdivers, an ongoing series written by Stephen Graham Jones with art by Davide Gianfelice, unites four Indigenous survivors in an apocalyptic near future as they embark on a bloody, one-way mission to save the world by traveling back in time to kill Christopher Columbus and prevent the creation of America.

Dead Seas, a six-issue miniseries written by Cavan Scott with art by Nick Brokenshire, transforms a cynical convict into a reluctant hero when he’s trapped on a sinking prison ship swarming with ghosts. Can he unite desperate criminals, pirates, and brutal guards as they try to escape a watery grave?

Golgotha Motor Mountain, a five-issue miniseries written by Matthew Erman and Lonnie Nadler with art by Ryan Lee, is a high-octane, redneck motor massacre about two meth-cooking brothers and their attempt to make it home in one piece as all manner of cosmic alien horrors are hot on their trail.

Arca, an original graphic novel written by Van Jensen with art by Jesse Lonergan, leaves a dying Earth behind as billionaires establish a luxurious new society out among the stars, tended to by teenage indentured servants. But one girl discovers that the good life promised for their years of servitude was a lie…

The Sin Bin, a six-issue miniseries written by Robbie Thompson with art by Molly Murakami, hits the road with washed-up hockey player Dale “Dukes” Duquesne, who moonlights as a monster hunter during away games with his daughter, Cat, in tow, hoping to find her mother’s killer.

The Hunger and the Dusk, a twelve-issue storyline written by G. Willow Wilson with art by Chris Wildgoose, upends an age-old conflict between humans and orcs by introducing a new, deadlier species. Fragile alliances form—and unexpected romances blossom—as former enemies wade into battle together to save their two races.

The nine titles announced are just the beginning, as the company has numerous additional projects underway for 2023 and beyond, including a comic book series by Academy Award–winning director, screenwriter, novelist, and showrunner John Ridley and several original graphic novels aimed at middle grade and YA audiences.

In addition to publishing plans, IDW will be developing these properties for film, television, and other entertainment mediums.
