‘Alabaster: Shelter’ Comes To Free Comic Book Day!

We’ve been following Kaitlín R. Kiernan’s highly anticipated new series Alabater: Wolves quite extensively here on BD, and we must say that we are quite stoked about this new book. Lucky for you, Dark Horse announced that a mini Alabaster story will be included as part Free Comic Book Day in an effort to hype the series even more. Look for both Star Wars/Serenity and Buffy/The Guild which will both feature part of the Alabaster: Shelter mini story on May 5th! Check out our interview with Kaitlin right here. Read on for the skinny…

abastaer Dark Horse announced the following news today:

One of Dark Horse’s most-anticipated new series premiered in the company’s flagship anthology last week in Dark Horse Presents #9.

Dark Horse celebrates this event with additional news today that Caitlín R. Kiernan’s highly anticipated new series will now be included in both of Dark Horse’s Free Comic Book Day books, with two pages in each book, to expose this exciting new series to as wide an audience as possible!

Alabaster is based on Caitlín R. Kiernan’s fan-favorite Dancy Flammarion stories, a dark fantasy series centered around a teenage protagonist of striking appearance and hidden, terrible depths. For nearly as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Dancy Flammarion has fought monsters, cutting a bloody swath through the demons and dark things of the world, aimed like a weapon by a merciless seraph more taskmaster than guardian.

This special four-page story, told across Dark Horse’s two FCBD offerings, will give readers a compelling glimpse into Dancy’s world and the blurry line that separates her from the angels she serves—and the monsters she hunts.

Look for Alabaster: Shelter in the back of both Dark Horse’s Star Wars/Serenity and Buffy/The Guild Free Comic Book Day comics on Saturday, May 5. Remember, you have to pick up both to read the whole story!
