First Look: The Much-Anticipated DARK RIDE #2 by Joshua Williamson & Andrei Bressan

Skybound unveiled a first look at Dark Ride #2, the next issue of the smash-hit new horror comic book series from the iconic Birthright team of Joshua Williamson (Batman, Dark Crisis) and Andrei Bressan (Justice League Incarnate) that takes place at The Scariest Place on Earth. Dark Ride #2 will arrive in comic book shops November 9, 2022.

After the unbelievable final page of the last issue, you aren’t prepared to learn more about The Scariest Place on Earth! Sam Dante and his sister Halloween will do anything to bring Danny D. Evil and Devil Land to audiences around the world…but is there any line they won’t cross to ensure their family’s legacy?

Dark Ride #2 boasts a stacked variant cover lineup that will continue through the series’ first arc. 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 issue #2 cover by Werther Dell’Edera (Something Is Killing the Children), while Cover C showcases Devil Land’s resident femme fatale and horror aficionado, Halloween, with the first four issues’ cover art by Sweeney Boo (Over My Dead Body).

Additionally, superstar creator Tony Fleecs (Stray Dogs, Star Wars Adventures) is art directing a classic homage poster variant program. The 1:25 incentives will span the Cover D slot of Dark Ride’s first four issues, bringing on a new guest artist for each cover. Agnes Garbowska (DC Super Hero Girls) is the artist at the helm for issue #2, with the Dark Ride world’s rendition of Beauty and the Demon.

Dark Ride #2 will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
