Dark Patterns Volume I is the brainchild of four talented writers and artists. They’re raising money for a 44 page full-color comic book, the first of two planned Dark Patterns books, and they think we’ll like it. Reading up on these four people – Joey Groah, Meredith Moriarty, Juan Romera, and Nic Shaw – it sure looks like they could create something special.
The story, as told by the creators:
A group of child prodigies are brought together as part of a government think-tank codenamed “Dark Patterns” to investigate and debunk supernatural occurrences.
After gaining notoriety for solving a kidnapping, the group is hired as a last-chance effort to help find a billionaire’s kidnapped granddaughter, thought to be abducted by a doomsday cult calling themselves The Parting. During the investigation, things go terribly wrong, causing the Dark Patterns project to disband, and an investigation concluding the kidnapping was a hoax.
On the fifth anniversary of the case, the group is brought back together for a live TV special, and find themselves the targets of a very real threat…
There are PDF versions, printed ones, as well as some original art, among the perks.
