Harrow County, the horror comic created by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Tyler Crook, is the latest Dark Horse series to receive the Library Edition treatment. The first eight issues of the series, or the equivalent of the first two trade paperbacks, will be collected into an oversized hardcover. Harrow County: Library Edition Volume 1 will also include back-up and supplemental material from the single issues of the series that was not included in the trade paperback editions.
For those not familiar, Dark Horse’s Library Editions are a larger format than most publishers’ typical ‘deluxe edition’ hardcovers. Closer in size to DC’s Absolute editions, Dark Horse has produced Library Editions for long-time ongoing series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hellboy, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. The format will really allow Harrow County fans to soak in the intricacies of artist Tyler Crook’s complex linework and lush painted colors.
Take a look at the all-new cover for the hardcover, as well as the full press release, below. Harrow County: Library Edition Volume 1 hits stores in October.
