Discover the high cost of “Everything” in a new series from Dark Horse
Dark Horse comics’ Berger Books imprint tackles rampant consumerism in the satirical ongoing Everything, which launches this fall. The series takes place in a small town in Michigan, which is the latest home of a mega-huge department store. It sells everything, as you could probably surmise.
I predict that nothing at all will go wrong and this will be a relatively low-key, introspective study of small-town life. Nothing sinister or malicious to be seen here.
We’ll find out how wrong I am this September, so check out the details below.

“Everything” From Christopher Cantwell and I.N.J. Culbard Shipping in September 2019
MILWAUKIE, Ore. (June 17, 2019)— From Christopher Cantwell, acclaimed writer of She Could Fly and co-creator of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, and celebrated artist I.N.J. Culbard (The New Deadwardians, Brink, Brass Sun) comes a new monthly ongoing series this fall, Everything. The latest addition to Karen Berger’s critically acclaimed Berger Books imprint at Dark Horse Comics, Everything is a truly bizarre story about the most horrifying pursuit of happiness you’ve ever read.
From wayward teens to lonely housewives and ambitious city officials, most in this otherwise-sleepy Michigan town are thrilled with the arrival of EVERYTHING, a new mega-department store, and its catalog-perfect manager, Shirley. But thrill turns to frenzy, and when bouts of mania, random hellish fires, violent explosions and unshakeable psychic disturbances start to overtake the population, a few—like depressive out-of-towner Lori and a suspicious local named Rick—begin to suspect EVERYTHING might be the cause.
What twisted power has taken hold of Holland, Michigan and its town-folk? Who—or what—exactly is in charge here… and what insidious plans are in store?
“I love Everything!” said Karen Berger. “It’s like if Twin Peaks and Stranger Things had a baby and Ray Bradbury was the godfather. It’s truly one of the strangest and most surreal series I’ve ever published, while being incredibly moving and relatable.”
Everything #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 4.
