Dahlia in the Dark is a fast-paced, action, fantasy thriller about family and hidden truths. Ringo award winner and Eisner nominated author Joe Corallo (She Said Destroy, Becstar, The Never Ending Party) joins rising star artist Andrea Milana for an all-original mini-series that will take readers on one wild ride! Here’s what the creators have to say about it:
“I was thrilled when Mad Cave not only reached out to me about writing another book for them, but that they wanted me to work on something that was in many ways a departure from what I had done with Becstar. Crime noir and urban fantasy are genres I’ve always found joy in, so to be able to mash them up and run wild with them was a real treat. And while this book is in many ways different from Becstar, it’s still filled with a lot of personal character moments and even more action!” – Joe Corallo (He/Him)
“At first I was a bit awed about working on Dahlia in the dark, as it’s the very first comic book series I got the chance to work on! Regardless, I was so excited about it: the story written by Joe got me over the initial hurdle and got me so passionate about the project that drawing that world became almost automatic. I hope my work can convey even a little bit of that passion!” – Andrea Milana (He/Him)
