TweetDark Horse appears to be increasing their list of titles at a gradual but steady pace, with some laudable caution but what seems to be a specific agenda to build on their successes rather than simply allowing those successes to maintain their reputation over time.

TweetYou just want to see the image, don’t you. Announced on, of all places, Nerdist.com, Itty Bitty Hellboy came about due to the all-seeing eye of Dark Horse editor Scott Allie. Doesn’t everything?
