Writer SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool, Strange Academy) and artist JORGE CORONA (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Super Sons, Feathers) follow up their critically acclaimed series MIDDLEWEST with a brand-new haunting tale. An artist named Ro retreats from the grind of the city to an old house in a small town to find solace and inspiration without realizing the muse within is not what she expected. Fans of Stephen King and Neil Gaiman will enjoy this beautiful, dark, and disturbing story of discovery, love, and terror.

Attention paranormal romance readers! If you haven't read comics because they aren't your thing, you might want to rethink that!

The Me You Love in the Dark is a 5-issue story about a woman named Ro. She is an artist and dealing with art-block so she rents a gothic house in the mid-west. She was warned it was haunted but doesn't appear to believe ghosts. She spends her first weeks in the house trying to draw and talking to her pretend ghost and occasionally asking for help. Well, guess what?! It answers.

In issue #1 we meet Ro and get a little background on how she ended up in a haunted house. The issue ends with the ghost speaking for the first time, but we don't see it.
There are tons of novels about this very thing! Of course, I don't know in what direction this will go. Is it a good ghost or a bad ghost? The comic is rated Mature so that could mean killing or sexy time...or both! lol

I can't wait to find out. This is definitely worth checking out. I plan on reading the whole series. So I'll keep you updated.
