Overwatch: Anthology Vol 1

From Soldier: 76 to Ana, Tracer to Symmetra, discover the backstories behind Overwatch’s most popular heroes! This hardcover anthology collects the first twelve issues of Blizzard Entertainment’s digital Overwatch comics and features an all-star creative team, including Matt Burns, Robert Brooks, Micky Neilson, Nesskain, Bengal, and more. Whether you are a beginner or a Grandmaster, this anthology is an essential companion to Overwatch gameplay!

I’m sure just admitting this publicly puts my video game card at risk, but I’m not an Overwatch fan. I played the first open beta to check it out, had a fairly good time with it, but had no interest past that. I’m not saying it’s a bad game, not at all, it’s just not for me...

The Dark North

Originally crowdfunded in 2015, this illustrated prose/art book fusion features five unique tales ranging from Norse mythology to science fiction. The Dark North showcases artwork by Scandinavia’s leading illustrators and concept artists Peter Bergting, Henrik Pettersson, Joakim Ericsson, Magnus Olsson, and Lukas Thelin, prose by Martin Dunelind, and a foreword by author and filmmaker Clive Barker!

It was interesting to learn from the above summary that this was originally brought to life thanks to crowdfunding. Whether or not that attempt to do so had been successful, which gladly it was, I hope it would have still been brought to the masses. Once you open up The Dark North and see the wonders within, you’ll be thankful that it happened regardless of the crowdfunding success.

The Dark Horse Book of Horror

Mike Mignola, Hellboy, and a roster of great creators and characters explore the dark corners of the horror genre in thirty-five stories of witchcraft, ghosts, and the risen dead.

Originally published in four award-winning anthologies, these stories featured the debut of Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson’s Beasts of Burden series, and standalone stories by Kelley Jones, Kurt Busiek, and many others.

In addition to the comics, Gary Gianni (Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea) illustrates stories by legendary authors such as Robert E. Howard (Conan) and William Hope Hodgson (The House on the Borderland), and Scott Allie interviews experts in the occult fields, including a seance medium and a witch who specializes in love spells.

I absolutely loved whenever the book fair came around during school and...
