After carefully reviewing all of the covers for Dark Horse books published with cover dates between January and December of 2016, we've selected a collection that runs the eye-catching, attention-grabbing gamut.
Matt Kindt is somewhat of Dark Horse's secret weapon these days; leading the charge with hit creator-owned books such as Mind MGMT and Dept. H. In an industry packed with franchise superheroics and licensed properties, Kindt is one of the creators leading the charge with unique concepts and innovative storytelling.
That trend is set to continue later this year with the announcement of Ether, a new creator-owned title from Dark Horse which sees Matt Kindt team with artist David Rubin which sees two worlds of science and magic collide for one intrepid explorer.
In Curt Pires and David Rubin's The Fiction for Boom Studios, a magical book makes the imaginary real, and two lifelong friends re-enter the fantastic world it contains in search of two more of their group who disappeared into The Fiction. The "Step Into a Good Book" library program might want to work out a new campaign.
If you have fond childhood memories of those times you were so immersed in the fantastical world of a favorite book that a whole day seemed to pass you by, Curt Pires and David Rubín's The Fiction, from Boom Studios, may be the perfect series for you. Then again, it may make you rethink where that time went.
The intriguing premise of The Fiction takes that idea of getting lost in a fictional world to an extreme and sinister conclusion. It's the story of a group of friends who once found a set of books that actually allowed them to explore other worlds. But one of them never came back. And now that they're adults, another member of the group has gone missing...
The Rise of Aurora West, which tells the story of one of Battling Boy's allies, the daughter of science hero Haggard West, is set for release in July 2014. Pope will have some help on the book this time. J.T. Petty will co-write it with him and it'll be drawn by artist David Rubin.
