Midnight Society: The Black Lake Comes to Dark Horse


Drew Edward Johnson may have experience working on Wonder Woman and Star Wars, but that creative itch gets to the best of us where we want to do something more. Something original. Something like Midnight Society: The Black Lake, which is Johnson's first creator-owned work. It combines intrigue, secret agents, monsters and more.

“I began my career in comics working with Dark Horse on Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron,” Johnson said. “To bring my first creator-owned project to Dark Horse Comics is a great homecoming for me. Especially given the opportunity to work with my editor, Philip Simon, whom I had the good fortune of working with in the early days of my career. I’m thrilled and honored to join Dark Horse’s line of genre-bending horror-adventure books, like Hellboy, B.P.R.D., The Goon, and so many more, which have all influenced my work heavily over the years.”

Forty years ago, England’s greatest adventurers cast aside their friendship, making a choice that would come to haunt humanity. Now, secret agent Matilda Finn will face the consequences of that choice as she aids in a frantic rescue operation at Scotland’s Loch Ness, where something terrible is waiting to draw her into the fight of her life!

Midnight Society: The Black Lake #1 goes on sale June 17. Full press release below.
