FROM THE HAUNTED CLINTON ROAD TO THE GREEN CHILDREN OF WULPET, EXPERIENCE IT ALL IN “TRUE WEIRD VOLUME 1”

Dark Horse Books and Tiny Onion present True Weird Volume 1, a collection of black-and-white short comics originally featured as bonus stories throughout Blue Book series 1 and 2. Based on true accounts, these stories describe encounters with cryptids, ghosts, paranormal phenomena, medical oddities, and all manner of the strange.

This new volume features twelve of the strangest “true” stories from the world around us, featuring an all-star lineup of creators including James Tynion IV, Klaus Janson, Chris Condon, Michael Avon Oeming, Ming Doyle, John McCrea, Genevieve Valentine, Aditya Bidikar, Anand RK, Gavin Fullerton, and many more.

True Weird Volume 1 (paperback, 120 pages, 6.625×10.188”) will be available in bookstores on January 28, 2025 and in comic shops on January 29, 2025. It is now available to pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, tfaw.com, and your local comic shop and indie bookstore for $24.99.

Praise for True Weird stories:

“Tynion and Janson’s back-up has more of a standard narrative, which makes it a fun chaser to the lead story. It’s an interesting weird story about Coney Island, and it has a great twist when it gets even weirder. It’s the sort of back-up that feels worth it.”—Comicon

“Blue Book delivers a banger of a backup story, thanks to Lonnie Nadler and Jenna Cha’s grotesque take on the infamous Tarrare…Nadler and Cha show off what modern-day interpretations of folklore and ‘true weird’ stories could be and how this book’s format could produce some real gems in the future.”—Comicbook.com
