Coming Attractions: Fall 2011: Dark Horse Comics

.

So, What can we expect from Dark Horse?  Lots of great creator-owned properties, some fun fan-favorites, and the occasional archival gem.  (And even more coming next year!)  Many titles listed below have previews, so click the title to go to the page on DarkHorse.com!

Let’s see…

I generally avoid continuing series, since most readers already know about the previous volumes, so I won’t feature the numerous manga titles (which don’t really appeal to me, although DH does have a strong history of publishing major titles).  Nor will I remark on most of the archives, like Archie, or Gold Key, or Warren, or Little Lulu.  (Of course, feel free to mention your favorites in the comments!)

So what’s left?  Lots of good, original work!

  5. Jim D. says:

    I’m sure that Manara book is lovely, but 60 bucks for 200 pages? Really, Dark Horse?
