The co-creators of the new title from Scott Snyder’s new imprint at IDW discuss how they came to comics, their approach to the story and more.
Last summer, after the release of Dark Spaces: Wildfire, IDW announced that writer Scott Snyder would curate a series of comics under the “Dark Spaces” label, written and drawn by different creators. They also announced the second title from the imprint, Dark Spaces: Good Deeds by writer Che Grayson and artist Kelsey Ramsay.
When the announcement was made, Snyder said his intent with the line was to “champion up-and-coming talent,” but “up-and-coming” may not apply to Grayson and Ramsay for long, based on what I’ve seen in the first issue. Together they’ve created a compelling “Southern Gothic” horror tale that draws as much from real-world fears as it does from the supernatural. I caught up with the writer and artist to talk about how it all came together, their approach to the story and more.
The first issue will arrive in stores on May 17.

Check out exclusive previews for two new stories from Archie’s upcoming digest, which arrives in stores on April 5.
Courtesy of our friends at Archie Comics, we’re happy to present a preview of two new stories from World of Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #24, which comes out April 5.
In the first preview, there’s some confusion over who is the real hero when She-Fox and Skulk recruit Superteen and Powerteen — that’s Betty and Veronica in their masked identities — to help them battle their foe. This one is by Ian Flynn, Holly G!, Jim Amash, Glenn Whitmore and Jack Morelli.
Then in the second new story, Pow-Girl, who returned to action a couple of weeks ago, recruits Betty and Veronica to help her against the criminal gang the Yellowjackets (luckily there’s no confusion over who the bad guys are here!) That leads to the girls asking Pow-Girl about her secret origin. This one is by Tom DeFalco, Dan Parent and Bob Smith, joined by Whitmore and Morelli on colors and letters.
Check out the previews for both stories below along with the credits and description, as well as a full classic mystery story written by Bob Bolling of Little Archie fame.
