Tremor Dose, the sci-fi horror graphic novel by Michael W. Conrad and Noah Bailey, was published digitally as a Comixology Originals exclusive title back in 2019. Now The Beat can exclusively reveal that, as part of the ongoing partnership between Comixology and Dark Horse Comics, Tremor Dose will get a print release as well, scheduled for later this year.
Here’s how Comixology describes Tremor Dose:
Everyone dreams, but are these dreams our own? Who controls our thoughts when we’re sleeping? Ginn, is a young college student who has been having wildly disturbing nightmares featuring a man she has never met. When she finds a flyer with his picture and the question, “Have you dreamed this man?” she submits to an interview that begins to unravel her perceptions of reality.
To accompany the exclusive announcement, both Conrad and Bailey expressed their enthusiasm over seeing their first collaboration brought to print by Dark Horse:
“As creators we often have projects that feel too strange to pursue. Noah and I didn’t let that kind of thinking get in our way with Tremor Dose; the fact that it exists and thrives is an oddity. With Dark Horse taking it to print it’ll prove, once again that that the line between dreams and reality is a blurry one indeed.” -Michael W. Conrad
“I am terribly grateful, honored and amazed to be creating work that is appreciated on any level, much less to be published by one of the finest comics publishers on the planet. Still grasping the reality of it all. I really appreciate all of the love and support that has been shown to us and our creations! Thank you, fellow humans!” -Noah Bailey
For Conrad, the print edition of Tremor Dose is the latest win for the writer, who’s preparing to take over writing chores with partner Becky Cloonan on DC’s Wonder Woman beginning next month. The duo also wrote Immortal Wonder Woman and a series of excellent Midnighter backup stories for DC’s just-wrapped Future State event. Conrad and Bailey are also evidently not done working together; Bailey has shared a number of images on his Instagram page from both a new graphic novel and a new short story that he and Conrad are working on together.
Tremor Dose joins numerous other Comixology Original series, including Chip Zdarsky & Jason Loo‘s Eisner-winning Afterlift and Alex Segura, Monica Gallagher, George Kambadais, Marco Finnegan, Ellie Wright, and Taylor Esposito‘s The Black Ghost, among others, in getting print editions from Dark Horse. The publisher and Comixology entered into an agreement to bring formerly digital-only titles to print last year.
