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.
Here's the problem with living in a place called "The Drowning City." Actually, strike that --- you can probably guess most, if not all of the problems with living there just from the name. Like, say, the fact that the city itself is drowning, which means that there are a whole lot of citizens who are also being dropped into a watery grave. But, on the bright side, I imagine that means there are a whole lot of cheap apartments you can check out if you bring your own SCUBA equipment.
Really, though, there's a much bigger problem facing Joe Golem in the pages of Joe Golem #5, the last issue of the miniseries from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden and Patric Reynolds that ties into their illustrated novel: Zombies. Lots and lots of waterlogged zombies that are dead set (ha) on taking out the living. Check out a preview!
Joe Golem is an illustrated novel from Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, set in a world full of monsters where a good chunk of Manhattan sank into the sea in 1925, giving rise to a "Drowning City" full of waterlogged skyscrapers and unknown horrors.
Now, Mignola and Golden are bringing their pulpy, monstrous detective story to comics. Dark Horse announced this week that Mignola and Golden will be cowriting Joe Golem: Occult Detective, a five-issue miniseries with art and color by Patric Reynolds and Dave Stewart, set in the mid-'60s, ten years before the events of the novel.
