In 2016 Dark Horse Comics will celebrate a milestone with its 30th Anniversary Variant Program. Relax, they're only doing one variant cover a month.
Its always nice to get previews from Dark Horse. We're seldom disappointed. Anyone who enjoyed King's Road in Dark Horse Presents will be thrilled not only to see it collected, but to see an additional story! Check out the preview before and let your local comic shop know that you want it as soon as possible, because the cutoff date is Monday!
The Neon Genesis: Evangelion spinoff The Shinji Ikari Raising Project is getting an Omnibus collection. It's been a big week for Dark Horse Manga, with this being the fourth announcement of a big collection coming in summer of 2016.
RG Vega (pronounced "Rig Vega") is the manga that put the group of artists known as CLAMP on the manga map. Dark Horse is bringing it to American audiences this summer in a beautiful, three volume omnibus format collecting the entire series which ran from 1989 to 1996.
Fans of the Blood series have a treat coming in the Blood-C prequel series, Demonic Moonlight. Dark Horse has announced that it will deliver the first volume in this series telling the story of Saya's mentor, from CLAMP, Production I.G, and artist Ryo Haduki.
Manga artist Kenji Tsuruta hasn't had new original work published in twenty years. Now the creator of the acclaimed manga Spirit of Wonder has a new story, published in the US by Dark Horse.
After reading the first issue of Barb Wire, I'll have to admit, I let it fall to the wayside. It always seemed to come into our mailbox at the wrong time. The Adam Hughes covers are eye catching as always, but I've been burned by pretty covers before, so I always tread lightly whenever I see a really great cover. I tend to put a large burden inside on the writer and artists to live up to the appeal of that cover. Let's see if Barb Wire #7 follows through.
Neil Gaiman's How To Talk To Girls At Parties is getting adapted from it's original prose form in 2016. Dark Horse announced today that the 2007 Hugo Award nominated and Locus Award winning short story is to be adapted as a graphic novel.
As you would expect, Lone Wolf 2100 is inspired by the classic story Lone Wolf and Cub. We're still in the process of reviewing it, so instead of assuming anything about it, how about we just share in the preview that Dark Horse has sent over?
The comic book anthology is a tradition that Dark Horse knows well. One of the titles that put the publisher on the map is Dark Horse Presents. The anthology genre seemed to vanish with the near-implosion of the comics industry in the 1990s. It seems that with increased interest in comics, the anthology is making a comeback. It comes with the influence in the industry of a wide variety of female creators. Dark Horse has announced for October 2016 a new anthology from female creators, The Secret Loves Of Geek Girls.
Margaret Atwood is the Booker Award winning author of such novels as The Blind Assassin, The Heart Goes Last and The Handmaid’s Tale. She's written almost every for almost every genre in every medium of writing, including short stories, screenplays, novels, poetry and essays. In 2016 she adds graphic novels to that list with Angel Catbird, published by Dark Horse.
Adam Warren's Empowered is one of those series that remains a unique dichotomy. Adam Warren's style lends itself to the hyper-sexualized artwork we've come to expect from super hero comics. Empowered as a character is defined by her propensity to get captured, bound and gagged by super villains. Along the way, Adam Warren has shown Emp to grow into a very confident heroine capable of defending her image and the perception of female super heroes everywhere. The latest special is entirely by Adam Warren, making it unique among the specials that have come out.
