Markosia set to launch Dark Mists sequel at London Super Comic Con

Dark Mists 2 Kurotobi Skies - Cover

London Super Comic Convention 2016 will be a very special show for Markosia where the long-awaited launch of two new books will finally happen, along with  a revised and improved version of one of the indie publisher’s most popular books in recent years, Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste (see news story).

Ten years after the first book was released, Annika Eade’s sequel to the justifiably much-praised and critically acclaimed Dark Mists will get its launch this coming weekend. The sequel, Dark Mists: Kurotobi Skies will launch exclusively at LSCC 2016 and both Annika and artist Babisu Kourtis will be at the show signing copies of the book. Check out some sneak preview pages from the book, below!

Only 50 copies of the hardcover wil be available and those buying a copy will also receive a copy of Volume One for free. The new story will be on sale in book shops from 19th February.

Also launching exclusively at the show, as previously reported, is Kevin Gunstone’s superb offering, Future Primitive, a book that has attracted much attention from all over the world. As with Dark Mists there will only be 50 copies of the hardcover at the show.

Kevin will be in attendance to sign and chat away, and those lucky enough to purchase a copy will also receive a free graphic novel from a selection on offer.
