The Dark was a 28 page A5 publication published from Finaghy, Belfast in the early 1990s by David Houston, also thought to be working under the psuedonym, D Star. The collection included five stories (one of which was a text piece), with themes of science fiction and black magic. Intended as a continuing publication, it never made it past its first issue, a conciliation Star made in the introduction. The Dark bore the cover price of 35p.
Houston produced most of the work in the collection. Jim Clarke lettered one strip ("Space-Time"), while Mallon scripted another, which Star provided the visuals for and Plug! lettered "Star-Balls". The only exception was "The Misfits", which was entirely executed by Sean Doran.
