Fear Agent Library Volume 1 Sells Out!

Dark Horse Announces Reprint Timed with the Release of Volume 2 in Spring of 2013!

MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse Comics gives one of its most beloved creator-owned series in its vast archives a long-overdue deluxe treatment! Demand has proven to be much higher than Dark Horse could have anticipated, with the first printing selling out before hitting the shelves of comic shops today.

Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña’s Fear Agent was a critics’ darling long before the X-Men joined the Avengers. Published first by Image Comics, Fear Agent came to Dark Horse in 2007 and stayed through the series’ end in late 2011...

Fairy Tale Knights Prelude

This 25 page book highlights concept and completed art from the highly anticipated comic book series “Fairy Tale Knights”!! It features a ten page mini story of the main characters Malia and Patrick, as they try to cross “the Bridge of gloom” guarded by the Troll and his Henchmen.

The Good
Even being a short prelude book, this was a good read.  The premise to the series provided at the beginning sounds great.  This art style is one I think only fits in certain books, and for Fairy Tale Knights it does.  I also appreciated the sketchbook section which you don’t often see.

The Bad
Without any text, the story was a little tough to follow through any of the panels without action that could speak for itself.

The Summary
As a preview type of book, it does its job in piquing your interest j...

Serenade #10

After Jin Moon Kim’s rape attempt (issue #9), and still suffering the loss of her husband, Serena begins her dark, destructive journey of vengeance.  Vengeance on all those who have robbed her of happiness.

The Good
This classic story of revenge was very successful in getting you to connect with the main character. You could feel how fueled by intense emotions she was throughout each scene. The first person approach was well used for this and really helped bring you into the story.

The Bad
One thing that I would have liked was a bit more fill in the pages as far as the art goes, namely background.  The color splashed throughout almost felt out of place at times with it being sparse.

The Summary
Although I entered this well into the series, it actually held its own with not having any p...

Kickstarter of the Week: Sonora

The story of Three, Lope, Watts, and the Bats comes to a violent and cathartic zenith in Sonora #6.

Launched: Nov 21, 2012
Funding ends: Dec 21, 2012

Hello Bleating Goat fans!

This Kickstarter’s aim is to raise $500 for the completion of issue #6 of our flagship title, Sonora.

For the past two years I’ve been publishing Sonora, a modern animal-driven twist in the superhero genre. Children’s artist extraordinaire Erin Taylor has been using her unique artistic abilities to bring this adult children’s comic book to life. And so far, the main characters Three and Lope have been having a tough time.

I don’t want to give too much away in case you haven’t read issues 1 through 5. Suffice to say Three is powerful and angry and in a rare opportunity to make things right.

I’m an independent comic b...
