Galactic Comic and Collectibles and Capes and Tights have teamed up for a store exclusive variant of Joseph Schmalke‘s Seven Years In Darkness and it’s now available!
Seventy-two children are conscripted to the Academy of Black Magic for seven years where they’ll study the dark arts in a setting devoid of the sun. Only seven will survive to see daylight again.
The first issue of Seven Years In Darkness regular cover released in June. Limited to roughly 4,000 copies, the book is a deviation from his normal avenue of release, he self-published issue one. Joe has typically released his books via his Black Caravan imprint at Scout Comics.
A number of variant covers have been released already, but now you can own a copy of the exclusive store variant limited to 75 regular variant covers and 25 metal variant covers. This store variant is a partnership between Capes and Tights and our local comic book shop Galactic Comics and Collectibles in Bangor, Maine.
Our stunning cover was a product of the great Bob Tkacik, also of Maine. Tkacik is currently working on his crowd-funded book, Good Boy Paws, but has also draw covers for IDW, Aftershock, and Black Caravan. Bob linked up with Hanahan Comics in Charleston, South Carolina for a store exclusive variant cover of the smash-hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin in 2020.
The exclusive Seven Years In Darkness store variant is only available in person at Galactic Comics and Collectibles at 547 Hammond Street, Bangor, Maine or via the Galactic online store. This limited amount of 100 copies will go quickly, so get yours while you can!
