Man, this sure ain’t Disneyland… Writer Joshua Williamson and artist Andrei Bressan’s hit horror comic Dark Ride takes an unsettling look at the creepy side of family-friendly theme parks. And its latest issue, Dark Ride #6, is no exception. Check out four pages from the issue, along with all four of its covers, after these official deets…
Skybound today revealed a first look at Dark Ride #6, which returned to acclaim last week, kicking off its second story arc. The latest issue of the hit horror comic book series from the iconic Birthright team of writer Joshua Williamson (DC’s Superman, Dark Crisis), artist Andrei Bressan (DC’s Justice League Incarnate), colorist Adriano Lucas (Nightwing), and letterer Pat Brosseau (Creepshow) will be in comic book shops on May 17, 2023.
In this issue, Sam must survive the nightmarish underbelly of Devil Land and the crazed intentions of one of the park’s oldest employees, who is intent on ridding the world of another Dante.
Dark Ride #6 continues the impressive variant cover lineup that has run throughout the series. In addition to the main cover by Bressan and series colorist Adriano Lucas, Dark Ride’s Cover B variant spotlights park mascot Danny D. Evil, with an issue #6 cover by Vincenzo Riccardi, while Cover C showcases Devil Land’s resident femme fatale and horror aficionado, Halloween, with the second of four new covers by Paulina Ganucheau (Zodiac Starforce).
Additionally, megastar creator Tony Fleecs (Stray Dogs, Star Wars Adventures) continues art directing the classic homage poster variant program that ran throughout the series’ first arc. The 1:25 incentives will also span the Cover D slot of Dark Ride’s second arc, bringing on a new guest artist for each cover. Adrian Ropp is the artist at the helm for issue #6.
