Dark Corridor Keeps Readers in the Dark


Offering readers enough of an incentive to keep coming back for a monthly series is tough. If a book doesn't have a hook that's memorable enough, then readers are just going to move onto another book that does. Rich Tommaso feels pretty strongly that his new work Dark Corridor has enough to keep readers coming back for more.

"This first serial in Dark Corridor, The Red Circle, is one that I've wanted to do for a long time,” said Tommaso. “A comic book inspired by old gangster films, but one where the male archetypes are fatally removed from power by the women who usually only serve as mothers, lovers and/or damsels in distress in those stories."

Dark Corridor is set in the fictional coastal city of Red Circle, a town totally controlled by mobsters. But after decades of wielding power, the mobster’s stronghold is slipping and some unidentified female assassins are picking them off one-by-one. Dark Corridor #1 (Diamond Code: JUN150499) will be available on Wednesday, August 5th.
