One of the best things about digital comics is that you can read them online pretty much anywhere, but sometimes, every now and then, you want to read them in print. Whether it's the extra features that inevitably come with a printed collection, the texture of paper or just the comforting reminder that physical objects exist and you are therefore not alone and isolated in a formless void, printed webcomics have a lot to offer today's discerning reader, and Dark Horse is stepping up to give you three of the most exciting collections of the year.
Set for release next spring, Eisner winning digital comic Bandette and the webcomic Polar: Eye For An Eye are returning to Dark Horse for the book trade customers, but the third, Murder Book is a newcomer, and it looks awesome.
Kicking off what's sure to be a week of fun Comic-Con announcements from Dark Horse is news that the publisher is bringing to print two distinctly different but similarly Dark Horse-appropriate works from the Web: Pariah and Polar. The former is a science fiction suspense story conceived by veteran film producer and studio executive Aaron Warner that follows a group of teenagers possessed with extreme intelligence as they try to evade a suspicious government. The latter is a gorgeously minimalist spy/revenge piece from cartoonist Victor Santos (Filthy Rich). Both projects are to be collected in new editions that contain additional material not seen on the web -- in the case of Polar, that new material includes an entire script of dialogue that wasn't there before -- 160 pages worth.
