When there are Werewolves in Sauchiehall Street, who you gonna call?Ailsa Dark -- Scotland’s first line of defence against the supernatural!
AILSA DARK, Scotland’s newest Comic Book Hero will be released on October 28th at the GEEK OUT Entertainment Expo & Comic Con!
In October of last year we successfully launched our anthology title Tales of Mystery and Imagination, introducing the world to our horrific creation The Tattybogle Man. Now we’re adding to our roster of Scottish-based horror comics with Ailsa Dark; chronicling the tales of a Scottish adventuress as she protects the good folk of Glasgow from supernatural threats.
Aided by Detective Umair Farooq, Ailsa takes on a worldwide criminal organisation in her first adventure -- Werewolves and Bampots!
Working Scottish folklore and history in with Lovecraftian elements, Ailsa Dark will build a rich tapestry of colourful characters and scenarios. “The first story-line will run across two issues and introduce Ailsa and her supporting cast”, says creator William Hazle, adding that “In typical comic book fashion, Ailsa has two identities; one is the heroic crime fighter and the other is presenting cult movies on a late-night cable channel.”
Featuring two stories in each issue -- Ailsa will share her book with The Tattybogle Man who will be bringing his unique brand of horror with him from Tales of Mystery and Imagination.
The third issue of the Tales of Mystery anthology has just been released. William notes “We’re pleased that Tales of Mystery has been successful enough to let us expand our roster of Scottish comic book characters -- The Tattybogle Man and Ailsa Dark are just the start. We’re already planning our third on-going title and character.”
“Ailsa Dark’s publication will mark our first year anniversary ”, says William “and we’re excited to be launching it at Geek Out, just in time for Halloween!”
