The cover and trailer for next month's Dark Shadows story, The Phantom Bride, are now available.
Dark Shadows (1966-1971) was a US TV series which told the story of the cursed Collins family. Set in the town of Collinsport, it featured witches, vampires, werewolves and warlocks plotting and scheming against each other. It was recently remade as a film starring Johnny Depp.
In this latest story, Dark Shadows: The Phantom Bride by Mark Thomas Passmore, private detective Tony Peterson (Jerry Lacy) and the witch Cassandra (Lara Parker) are all out at sea. Their latest case sees them investigating a series of mysterious deaths on board a cruise liner. Tony and Cassandra were previously reunited in The Death Mask, with their adventures continuing in The Voodoo Amulet and The Last Stop.
“What begins with the apparition of a woman in a wedding dress leads to a series of gruesome deaths on board a transatlantic luxury liner,” says Passmore. “And if Tony and Cassandra don’t act quickly, there may be no one left alive when the ship docks in England…”
