We’ve known that Caitlin R. Kiernan was up for a project with a publisher, but we don’t know which of her many stories are going to go under the comic book adaptation knife.  Dark Horse Comics teased us late yesterday with the following image that may give some a clue as to the nature of the project.

 

From the looks of it, Dark Horse is going to adapt Alabaster.

Alabaster is dark fantasy and science fiction author Caitlin R. Kiernan’s fourth collection of short fiction. It consists of five stories concerning the misadventures of Dancy Flammarion, the albino girl and monster hunter who first appeared in Kiernan’s 2001 novel, Threshold. The tales follow Dancy from her childhood in the backwoods and swamps of the Florida panhandle to her teenage duels with strange and murderous creatures in south Georgia. Haunted by a being which may or may not be an angel, Dancy is driven from one encounter to the next, gradually beginning to doubt the nature of her quest. All of these stories occur before the events of Threshold.

We’ll have all the details next week.
