Boston Brand is returning to the DCU in a new miniseries debuting this October titled Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love with an apparently new character called the Darkness - no relation to the Top Cow character. This three-issue prestige-format miniseries "set in the style of gothic romance comics of the 1960s and 1970s" will be written by Sarah Vaughn, with interior art by Lan Medina and covers by Stefanie Hans. According to DC, the three issues will ship every other month: October, December, and then February.

“I've been reading romance novels and comics since I was kid, and it is a genre I am positively passionate about,” said Vaughn. “I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to tell a modern gothic horror story with classic DC roots."

This Darkness character that Deadman is facing is in-fact the "vengeful rage" of the afterlife presence of a woman named Adelia Whitehall.

"A young woman with a conflicted heart and the ability to see ghosts, Berenice lives with her boyfriend, Nathan, in a grand mansion in New England but is growing closer and closer to her best friend, Sam," reads DC's description. "As she struggles with her heart’s desire, a dark presence settles over the mansion, drawing the attention of the ghostly superhero Deadman. As Berenice and Deadman seek to free the house and its inhabitants of Adelia Whitehall's (known as the Darkness) vengeful rage, more disturbing and sinister secrets emerge, leaving Berenice in grave danger."

Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love is scheduled to debut in October.
