Those with arachnophobia should probably not take the jump to read the news about Dark Horse Comics’ All Eight Eyes mini-series by Steve Foxe and Piotr Kowalski.
All Eight Eyes takes readers back to the forgotten corners of post-9/11 New York City, where college dropout Vin Spencer floats through life in a drug-and-party-fueled haze until one terrible night sweeps him into a drifter’s reckless war against the giant eight-legged horrors stalking the city’s most vulnerable residents.
“I’ve been obsessed with giant-animal horror stories ever since seeing Them! and Gila! as a kid,” Foxe said in a press release from Dark Horse Comics. “All Eight Eyes is both an ode to the thrills of watching oversized predators chow down on humans and a reckoning with how much NYC has changed—not always for good—since the turn of the century, drawing on my own time in the East Village and Alphabet City. I’m so thrilled to be making this arachnid gross-out alongside Piotr, Brad, and Hass. The detail Piotr brings to not just the creepy-crawly aspects of the book, but to every chipped brick and sticky sidewalk of NYC, is unmatched, and Brad and Hass match his skill page for page.”
All Eight Eyes is a four-issue mini-series that kicks off on April 19, 2023.
