Dark Horse Comics recently announced the Riven graphic novel, the third collaboration between co-writers Bo Hampton (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow) and Robert Tinnell (The Wicked West), which is slated to hit stores August 22. Rivenâ€™s three-part story beginning in Dark Horse Presents #14 will serve as a chilling introduction to their world of terror.
â€œDark Horse Presents is bringing together such a great mix of talent and stories at the moment that itâ€™s honestly an honor to be included in the book. From all the chatter Dark Horse Presents has been generating itâ€™s clear the book is appealing to discerning, articulate readersâ€”and those are precisely the sorts of people we hope are attracted to Riven,â€ said Robert Tinnell.
Rivenâ€™s Katya has been in a coma for five years, and when she awakes, everything has changed. Now she is a gorgeous teenager with a mysterious, gruesome past, becoming aware of a growing, terrifying power inside her body, triggered by the touch of the full moon, eager to break free . . . Can Katya solve the mystery of her blood-drenched nightmares before they become reality?
â€œIt was a great spawning ground in its original incarnation and Iâ€™m really happy to be part of Dark Horse Presents now. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing the Riven pages in that format,â€ Bo Hampton added.
