Shadwline Comics has been teasing a brand new series from Dirk Manning that examines devastating tales of love and dying. While not much is known about the project yet, the spooky teaser images (shown below) each wear famous quotes about the mysteries of love and death. The series will be available exclusively at the Shadowline website for free starting on May 15th, with twice-weekly updates. I imagine a fourth teaser will be released in the coming days and I’m willing to bet it bears the quote: “‘Tis better to have loved and lost: Than never to have loved at all”. See more details from Dirk Manning after the break.
In an interview with Newsarama, Manning said he would be “launching at least two new stories (initially) under a collective banner tentatively called Love Stories About Death with some of my Nightmare World pals such as Seth Damoose and Anthony Peruzzo, respectively, for starters. The Love Stories About Death stuff should also appeal to Nightmare World fans since it takes the same concept of stand-alone short stories and tells them in a bigger fashion. Basically, each Love Stories About Death story is a 22-page morality tale, and in truth several of them are Nightmare Wold stories that were too big or complex to be squeezed into eight pages. I’m also really excited about the stories and think people will be really blown away at what we’ll be doing there, especially now that I can cut-loose with the length a bit more.”
Stay tuned for more updates and news on the series.
