Re: Dynamite Entertainment presents Dark shadows comic book series:

I wonder if this is based on the original series or the new Tim Burton movie?

I'm betting it's the latter.

Re: Dynamite Entertainment presents Dark shadows comic book series:

I doubt if it will be set in the 60s, unfortunately. It will probably be done the way that Moonstone did Night Stalker-- the same character(s) set in the present. Kind of anachronistic.

Re: Dynamite Entertainment presents Dark shadows comic book series:

well for those who are interested it looks as the release will be a october event.
all so from the discription I read it look like it is following the original show. Now I've only seen bits and pieces of the original show and I saw all of the 90's program and read the three novels. I was wondering if any one know's if this show is aviable on dvd or BR yet?

And, of course, there were also the two previous movies, dozens of paperback novels by "Marilyn Ross," and an off-Broadway play . . . .

Re: Dynamite Entertainment presents Dark shadows comic book series:

from what i read this comic is set in 1972, after the events of the final episode. i think we actually discussed this news in that other DS thread.

Yeah, it probably will be based on the original. Based off of the other series based on old characters that Dynamite has been doing, they seem to base things off of the original source and then take it off in their own direction.

Netflix has 4 40 episodes collections starting with episode 210 available for streaming.

Re: Dynamite Entertainment presents Dark shadows comic book series:

Well, the writer talks a good game. I like his comments about operatic storytelling and continuity. I especially like this:

Manning wrote:
For instance, I can write someone falling from a cliff in and we can make it a big, striking image... The original show would play out the same thing, but they'd have to make do with some dry ice and a bit of foliage in the corner of the studio. The important part is that both approaches tell exactly the same story. So we're not suddenly going to be drawing armies of flying bat demons or anything like that... it has to still feel like part of that established world.
I wish more creators had this philosophy with classic properties.

agreed. just because you have the ability to do something doesn't mean you should. you could have Barnabas fight an army of Mummies...but that wouldn't fit with the series.
