From The Press Release

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (August 24, 2023)Eager fright fans won’t have to wait much longer for a new chapter starring their favorite horror host, for the incredible team of David Dastmalchian, Lukas Ketner, Lauren Affe, and Frank Cvetkovic returns with Count Crowley: Mediocre Midnight Monster Hunter! Lukas Ketner provides the main cover art, and the frightfully talented artist Francesco Francavilla presents a thrilling variant cover for issue #1, with chilling variants planned for each issue. Dark Horse Comics brings the campy crowds a third volume of the hit horror story in a four-part miniseries that is sure to cure that Count Crowley creature feature itch… for now.

A dead werewolf would have made Jerri Bartman feel victorious just a few days ago. But this deceased beast was her friend, and our beloved monster hunter is shocked and depressed. The return of her predecessor brings no consolation, and now there’s a ghoulish child-snatcher on the loose in Beloit… Holy Halloween, Count Crowley! Things are really getting batty!

“I am dying for readers to get their claws on Volume 3 of the Count Crowley saga!” said series creator David Dastmalchian. “I am finally getting to soak my pen in the blood and guts that I’ve always wanted to splatter on these pages. Pulling inspiration from some of my favorite gore horror in the Stuart Gordon/Frank Henenlotter tradition, as well as the “Abduction Panic” dread of the 1980’s Midwest, I have taken Jerri’s journey to a whole new level of horror. When readers see what Lukas Ketner has achieved in these issues, their eyes will literally pop out of their heads! And just wait until those variant covers are unveiled… It’s going to be a wild ride!”

Don’t take any chances: pre-order Count Crowley: Mediocre Midnight Monster Hunter #1 (of 4) today. This 32 page, full-color comic will be available in comic shops on November 8, 2023 for $4.99. 

Praise for Count Crowley: Amatuer Midnight Monster Hunter:

“A triumphant return, Count Crowley: Amateur Midnight Monster Hunter #1 is a sequel that gets right down to business with a fast-paced script and outstanding visuals.”—Monkeys Fighting Robots

“Lukas Ketner’s art remains the undead, un-staked heart of this title. His monsters are identifiable models for their B-movie counterparts, and his trappings of the time are perfection. Vanished era artifacts like telephone books, camcorders, and family hardware stores are well-represented. I’ve said it before, but his covers remind me of Dan Brereton’s work on titles like Nocturnals and Thrillkiller; on the racks or in solicits, his Crowley covers transfix like Lugosi at his unblinking Dracula best.—Doom Rocket

“I feel like this might actually be that rare and coveted ‘rush right out in a buying frenzy.’ Especially if you like a good horror story.”—Major Spoilers
