Tom Siddell’s acclaimed web series comes to Dark Horse

After the death of her mother and the disappearance of her father, a young girl arrives at a mysterious boarding school. While the curriculum seems to be focused on advancing science and technology, Antimony “Annie” Carver quickly discovers that the grounds are home to plenty of things that science can’t explain: ghosts, supernatural phenomena, and even the gods of the neighboring forest. Along with her friend Kat, Annie begins to unravel the mysteries of her new home, Gunnerkrigg Court, which may not actually be a school after all.

“Anyone with a taste for mystery, an eye for the fantastic and strange, The Court welcomes you,” says creator Tom Siddell. “I’m really excited for readers, new and old, to get their hands on the best version of Gunnerkrigg, from a publisher whose work I’ve been enjoying for decades!”

The Gunnerkrigg Court Volume 1 trade paperback edition and limited-edition hardcover edition each contain 586 pages and measure 6.625 x 10.1875″. The book will be available November 5, 2024 in bookstores and November 6, 2024 in comic shops. It is available for pre-order now on AmazonBarnes and NobleTFAW and at your local comic shop and bookstore and will retail for $29.99 for the standard edition and $79.99 for the limited-edition.

Praise for Gunnerkrigg Court:

“I was thrilled to hear that my favorite webcomic was going to be collected on paper. I wish that Antimony Carver and her adventures and mysteries and myths, not to mention her school, had been around when I was a boy to shape and warp and twist my growing mind – but I don’t think you could ever grow too old to delight in Gunnerkrigg Court.”—Neil Gaiman (Good OmensSandmanCoraline)
