Dark Moon Teleports into the Horror Comic Scene

Tom Freeman (AKA 'Freematik') is the man behind the latest in an immersive comic book experience. 'Dark Moon' on the face of it may just be another thrilling sci-fi yarn but adding an extra dimension. Drawn, composed and lovingly pieced together by creator Freematik, 'Dark Moon' is a combination of both his love for music and comics which are unified in this unique way and which is now available for you to buy! "I've always been somewhat obsessed with the combination of sound and images to create a powerful visceral sensation" says Freematik. The initial 'Dark Moon' series is a 4-part experience, with each part having a comic, soundtrack, as well as the "Motion Book" version. It can be read just like a traditional comic, but has been designed to be listened to with a soundtrack, which is provided with purchase and which is also available to stream online.

As has numerous other movies as well as hugely popular TV franchises such as 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', 'The Originals' and of course the Eli Roth produced 'Hemlock Grove'.
