    This series should easily please Dark Shadows fans. As someone whose knowledge of Dark Shadows is based on the recent movie and a few episodes of the TV show, it seems to fit in perfectly with the latter's style. There's enough her to appease the old fans and an interesting story to draw in new readers. It's a solid first issue, but it doesn't knock your socks off. There's more than enough to warrant a return trip though. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Apr 19, 2013

    I was lukewarm on the idea of this book because Real "Dark Shadows" Fans like myself already know the origin story and I wasn't too keen spending lots of time on a rehash of something I already saw 15 years ago in reruns. But it's a well-told story and there are plenty of details and twists added to make the experience worthwhile even for old hands to the property. Buy it if you can't get enough Barnabas, but remember that it takes place before Julia, Carolyn and even the 100-year-old Quentin come into the picture. 3 stars Read Full Review
