The 2015 Cryptozoic Penny Dreadful Season 1 base set has 72 cards. With just eight episodes to draw from, it allows for some room to go a little more in depth than a season with more than 20 episodes or a set that covers a show’s entire run.

Base cards stick to the episodes themselves with each using images from the show. Other elements and promotional artwork are saved for the inserts.

The only parallels announced at this point are Printing Plates.
