Following their collaboration in Razorblades: The Horror Magazine, the creative team of writer Steve Foxe, artist Piotr Kowalski, colorist Brad Simpson and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou are teaming up for All Eight Eyes, a 4-issue limited series from Dark Horse. new comic limited series about giant spiders from Dark Horse.
Here’s how the publisher describes the series:
All Eight Eyes takes readers back to the forgotten corners of post-9/11 New York City, where college dropout Vin Spencer floats through life in a drug-and-party-fueled haze until one terrible night sweeps him into a drifter’s reckless war against the giant eight-legged horrors stalking the city’s most vulnerable residents.
As a fan of creature horror stories, this series is a dream for Foxe:
“I’ve been obsessed with giant-animal horror stories ever since seeing Them! and Gila! as a kid. All Eight Eyes is both an ode to the thrills of watching oversized predators chow down on humans and a reckoning with how much NYC has changed—not always for good—since the turn of the century, drawing on my own time in the East Village and Alphabet City. I’m so thrilled to be making this arachnid gross-out alongside Piotr, Brad, and Hass. The detail Piotr brings to not just the creepy-crawly aspects of the book, but to every chipped brick and sticky sidewalk of NYC, is unmatched, and Brad and Hass match his skill page for page.”
The first issue will feature a main cover by Kowalski as well as a variant cover by James Stokoe.
All Eight Eyes issue #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on Wednesday, April 19th.
The TPB collection of All Eight Eyes, including all four issues, a pinup section with art from James Stokoe, Martin Simmonds, David Romero, and Trevor Henderson alongside a bonus sketchbook section, will be available Wednesday, November 8th.
