It’s likely that Scott Snyder got on your radar due to his remarkable contributions to the DC universe, but, equally impressive, is his venture into uncharted territories over the past few years with original creations via Best Jackett Press and his collaborations with companies such as ComiXology, IDW, Dark Horse Comics, and DSTLRY. These new partnerships have not only allowed Scott Snyder to tell original stories across multiple genres, but has given opportunties and a spolight to new and diverse creators.
With his latest release (now available in a single volume that collects all five issues!), Dark Spaces: Wildfire, Scott tells a captivating hesist story set in the middle of a historic fire, but this release also sets the stage for all new “Dark Spaces” stories with new creative teams. In our interview, we explore the origins of Dark Spaces, the inspiration behind Wildfire, and much more!
About Dark Spaces: Wildfire Book 1
“Set six weeks into the slow burn of the historic Arroyo fire, Dark Spaces: Wildfire explores the decisions of a desperate crew of women from an inmate firefighting program on the frontlines. Their newest recruit—a white-collar convict with a deep network of shady dealers—discovers that they’re mere miles from a former associate’s abandoned mansion. Enchanted by a score that would truly change their lives, she proposes a plan to abandon their duties and hunt for riches under the cover of smoke and ash. But with the fire closing in on the forest around them, is this a flicker of fortune or a deadly trap?”

About Dark Spaces: Good Deeds #1
“Scott Snyder’s Dark Spaces anthology line returns with an all-new story and creative team! In search of a fresh start, teenager Cheyenne Collins and her mother, Rebecca, move to St. Augustine, Florida, where they cross paths with Jean McKnight, a disgraced big-city journalist determined to pay her dues and rebuild her career, starting with a fluff piece on the town’s upcoming 450th anniversary celebration. When the quaint community’s festivities give way to bloodshed and Cheyenne is the sole witness, Jean begins an investigation and the women find themselves at the heart of a supernatural conspiracy linked to St. Augustine’s colonial past. Together, they vow to expose the town’s historical sins, but the deeper Jean digs, the less clear it becomes: Who is Cheyenne Collins, and when does a quest for truth become a thirst for vengeance? Rising talents Che Grayson (Batman: Urban Legends) and Kelsey Ramsay (Joan Jett and the Black Hearts, I Love Rock-n-Roll) team up for an eerie historical thriller about obsession, power, and redemption in Dark Spaces: Good Deeds!”
