Dark Shadows Comic Strip Season 2, Episode 1

 Now that season 2 of our ongoing Dark Shadows based comic strip has concluded (returning spring 2016, with some special guests that I know will perk up your ears ...), I'll do what I did last year and present them weekly in a digest format, where you can enjoy a full seven daily strips as one entire "episode."  Season 2 proved to be six weeks longer than our premiere season ... re-telling the story of 1795 required some extra time, with some interesting twists along the way.  Enjoy!

Sunday Comics

KLS published these in her 1996 Dark Shadows Comic Strip Book, but they were in black and white, which is really too bad, and the reprint book from Hermes Press seems to be dead in the water.  Check out the colors (the colors!), the glorious early-70's colors, especially on Carolyn's mini.  I've always enjoyed that the werewolf looks like the werewolf from the series; artist Ken Bald created amazing likenesses of Jonathan Frid, and the only other characters to appear from the show were Carolyn, Elizabeth, Angelique and (in one of the first strips, and only in a portrait on the wall) Quentin.  Plus:  how cool is Mr. Sinestra?  Mr. Sinestra needs to reappear somewhere.  Maybe when Shadows on the Wall returns.
