It’s cover preview time again with a five spot of covers from our friends at Dark Horse comics. Here is an exclusive first look at the covers for five books that will be released in February and April. Out in February is the issue #2 of Francesco Francavilla’s The Black Beetle (can’t wait for this series to come out!) Then in April we’ve got The Creep by John Arcudi (B.P.R.D., The Mask) and Jonathan Case (Green River Killer) with a cover by Tonci Zonjic.
Also in April are three volumes from Dark Horse’s manga line; Bride of the Water God volume 13, Oh My Goddess! volume 44 (I can’t believe this series has been going on for that long), and Gantz volume 27. Be sure to pre-order these and all the other fine books from Dark Horse comics.
