Destiny in the Dark (Blue Series)

Destiny in the Dark (Blue Series)

by Peter Lancett
Publication Date: 25/09/2015
Theme: Hi-Lo, Good vs. evil, comic format, graphic novel

Meet the Dark Man. He is a hero who lives in the shadows. A man with secret powers. The only man who can fight the evil Shadow Masters. Daytime is safe. Evil hides from the light. The Dark Man can sleep. But his dreams are dark.

The Dark Man series is designed for middle school and young adult struggling readers who may have never successfully managed to read a book. Each book is short, but mature, with only 36 pages and word counts ranging from 230 380.

The graphics are dark, adult in style, with clear references to gaming, film, and graphic novels. The layouts change to maintain interest and avoid predictability. The white space is used to dramatic effect. The text is short and simple. Stories are gritty, full of tension and mystery. The language is terse. The Dark Man is a serious comic hero with his own mythology. Each book is a self-contained story, but each story is a part of a greater whole."
