The Darkness haunted house will be even more frightfully entertaining on Friday, Oct. 4 when writer/artist Bobby Ray Akers Jr promotes his new graphic novel “Vengeance of Sleepy Hollow: Origins” along with Playboy model Ashley Salazar (Dark Jill in “Origins”).
To commemorate their visit, Akers has created a special collectors edition trading card to be given out free to guests (while supplies last).
After touring the haunt on Friday, fright fans will find Salazar and Akers will be in the Monster Museum between 7:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m.
In addition to the free exclusive trading card, special promotions for the evening include a discount on “Origins,” photo and autograph opportunities with both and a sneak peek at Akers’ Halloween release of “FROSTY: 'Twas The Night Before The Apocalypse.”
“Origins” is Akers’ new multimedia re-imagining of the classic tale. The history of the headless horseman is revealed and the stage is set for his return to exact final justice and vengeance, according to a press release. It explores the tragic tale of a hero and his fall into darkness through the eyes of the dead and the mind of a brilliant yet disturbed woman.
The Darkness is located at 1525 S. 8th Street in St. Louis’ Soulard neighborhood south of downtown. Ticket details and complete operating schedule information are available online at www.Scarefest.com.
