Ghosts, Romance, And Ghost Romance In ‘Deadman: Dark Mansion Of Forbidden Love’ #2 [Preview]
Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love, by Sarah Vaughn and Lan Medina, has, with just one issue, proven to be one of the most interesting DC projects of the year, and that only makes it more frustrating that it only comes out every two months. But thankfully, we've got an unlettered black and white preview of December's Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #2.
The first issue ended with Boston Brand and Adelia Ruskin vanishing mysteriously. True, that's what ghosts do, and that's what they both are, but this disappearance was enough to confuse Berenice, and she is more in tune with ghosts than other living people. But here we see that the two ghosts have retreated to a black void, where they seem to be having a romantic moment of their own.
Although Jose Villarrubia's colors are great on this comic, it's also interesting to see Lan Medina's art uncolored, which gives Deadman the look of a 1970s horror comic, an aesthetic that suits the project rather well.
Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #2 features a cover by Stephanie Hans, and comes out December 7.
Here's the official word from DC:
After Deadman and Adelia’s sudden disappearance, Berenice begins to unlock the mysteries of Glencourt Manor. With evil lurking around every corner, Berenice longs to confide in her boyfriend Nathan about what she has discovered, but she fears what he may think of her…instead, Berenice finds a sympathetic ear in Sam, who shows Berenice what it means to be a true friend.
