New Comics From Dark Horse

Today’s column marks an incredible anniversary for me. No, it’s not the 100th column or even the 200th. I haven’t been keeping the best records of these things, so I couldn’t really tell you how many of them I’ve written.

No, this is the column where we celebrate the fifth column written since I figured out I have no idea how many columns I’ve actually done! Happy QuinQuestionMarversary, everybody!

THINGS I’VE LEARNED

One of the things I’ve learned in my time is to give the readers what they want…such as exciting recommendations for this weeks books!

HOLY CRAP! Not only does Dark Horse have new issues of Billy the Kid’s Old Time Oddities #2 by Eric Powell butHellboy is going to meet the Beasts of Burden crew in Beast of Burden/Hellboy One-Shot?! Evan Dorkin, Mike Mignola and Jill Thompson working together? This is possibly the greatest comic book collaboration in years! If you’ve ever wanted a comic book where Hellboy holds a pug on the cover, well, now you have one.

All this and the Firefly: Shepard’s Tale GN which will finally reveal Shepard Book’s origins? Dark Horse, you spoil us!

Another thing I’ve learn is to use any flimsy excuse I can to plug fun comics I like. Continue reading

Whatever your reasoning, we do love our comic books.

AUTEUR

There are some creators that can make us fall in love with comic books all over again! One such creative genius was Mike Mignola, who’s red skinned, gun-toting monster slayer Hellboy pumped a good deal of new cash and interest into a flagging market and captures the flavor for the next ten years.

Mike is rich and powerful now, so the latest Hellboy collection, available this week and titled Hellboy Vol. 10 Crooked Man and Others is not drawn by the man himself. You’ll get some other fantastic artists, most notable Richard Corben and Duncan Fegredo, but does the collection loose points for not flowing exclusively from Mignola’s pen? Continue reading
