In 1986, Dark Horse launched with an anthology title called Dark Horse Presents and a book called Boris the Bear. Thirty years later Dark Horse has gone from a small piece of the '80s indie boom to one of the biggest and most successful independent comics publishers in the industry. Along the way it has published Conan the Barbarian (and still does), Star Wars (but not anymore, despite doing great work with the license), and Mike Mignola's Hellboy universe (still a cornerstone of the line).
Now Dark Horse and Humble Bundle are celebrating the former's 30th anniversary with a really extensive Comics Bundle of Dark Horse books.
If you're heading out to Comic-Con International in San Diego later this month, well, you have my most sincere condolences. The good news, though, is that you'll be able to pick up plenty of convention-exclusive toys and books while you're there, and to entice potential customers, Dark Horse has released a list of everything you can find at Booth 2615 this year.
The list of products includes tie-in items for stuff like Mass Effect, Buffy and an exclusive Usagi Yojimbo print by Stan Sakai, but the real star of what's on offer is unquestionably Mike Mignola's Hellboy, which is featured two exclusive hardcovers and a plush doll featuring a Comic-Con t-shirt.
Fresh off the news that Dark Horse is going to be publishing the print collections of Tiny Titans creators ArtBaltazar and Franco's Thrillbent series Aw Yeah Comics, the publisher, along with Dynamite Entertainment, and creative team are announcing one crazy crossover.
Not only will Captain Action Cat: The Timestream CATastrophe feature all the Aw Yeah Comics characters, but it'll also include Captain Action Cat, a feline version of the classic toy Captain Action, and a collection of Dark Horse characters including Ghost, X, Captain Midnight, and the Occultist. The first issue of the series hits April 16.
Earlier this month, we offered up a preview of the upcomingCBLDF Fund Liberty Annual 2013 the newest anthology comic that benefits the efforts of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Now, we're bringing you an interview with Dark Horse Comics Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie, who's serving as editor of this year's issue being released by Image Comics on October 31.
We talked with him about story selection, how history and current events can inform the comics community, Internet comments and lots more.
Dark Horse kicked off its Emerald City weekend with a panel dedicated to its new line of superhero characters, a push that turned out to be quite a bit more substantial than we initially thought. While the publisher had already released revivals of the Dark Horse-owned Ghost and X, the ancient pulp hero Captain Midnight and the original characters The Victories, the new year will see all of those graduated to ongoing monthly series alongside several more projects including more Black Beetle and the return of BloodHound, a lost DC Universe series that will finally be collected and continued by Dark Horse...
