Birthright is widely regarded as one of the best comics released through Skybound Entertainment and Image Comics. Fans of that series have plenty of reason to be excited by Skybound’s latest announcement. Writer Joshua Williamson, artist Andrei Bressan and colorist Adriano Lucas are reuniting for a new horror series called Dark Ride.

Dark Ride revolves around an amusement park named Devil Land, which has been in operation for 50 years. When superfan Owen Seasons achieves his dream of working at Devil Land, he discovers the park and its rides are home to more than a few twisted secrets, many of which connect back to Devil Land’s mysterious creator.

“Two of my biggest obsessions have always been HORROR…and AMUSEMENT PARKS. So, I had to find a way to combine them into something new. It’s a dream book I’ve been working on for a LONG time and it’s been awesome to finally pull it together with Andrei and the whole Birthright team!” Williamson said in Skybound’s press release: “It’s great to get back to horror after Nailbiter ended, and here we dive into some new themes with horror: What is scary in today’s world? How can you create something scary when every day we’re living.” in a horror show? Those are the themes I wanted to explore with DARK RIDE. Amusement Parks are meant to be a place of FUN…but here we really bring the HORROR.”

“It’s safe to say that we’re heading home! I’m really happy to be reunited with the rest of the Birthright clan once again! Bright! We usually tell people we are a team, but in fact, we are a living, breathing creature! And a hungry one too! At first you had us brandishing swords…but now, this time around…well…horror, right?” added Bressan. “I remember reading something that says ‘In horror, the surface always lies. Nothing is what it seems to be.’ So, take this and mix it up with an amusement park. You think you’re playing and having fun, but you’re actually flirting with Death. And here, Death blinks back at you!”

Dark Ride #1 will hit comic shops on October 5, 2022. However, readers can get an early taste of the new series via a story in Skybound X #25, which releases on July 20.
