I’m grateful for everybody who’s picked up the book. And if you liked the first issue I’ve got good news: Issue Two is even better.” OUTER DARKNESS #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (, the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
