Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 1, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Every kid I knew grew up loving the Arthurian legends. I’m still a little enthralled by them, mainly because of the rousing adventures that dealt with swords and sorcery. From Sir Thomas Mallory to T.H. White to Mary Stewart to Marion Zimmer Bradley, these stories have been told and retold from a variety of viewpoints over the years. So it should come as no surprise that we now get an even more modern take in The Once and Future Queen #1.

Release Date: March 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

This is it, folks. This is what many of us have been waiting for. This is the year that Neil Gaiman takes over the world. Well, maybe not the whole world but he’s certainly trying to take over the literary world. With an upcoming Starz television series being adapted from his Hugo, Bram Stoker, Locus, World Fantasy, and Nebula award–winning novel American Gods, it seems only fitting that there be a comic version, too. Right? Thankfully, Dark Horse Comics has stepped up with American Gods: Shadows #1, the first of an ongoing series based on the aforementioned book. Other than a few teaser pages I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but those look magnificent.

Story and Art by Matt Kindt
Colors by Sharlene Kindt
Letters by Marie Enger
Cover and Chapter Breaks by Matt Kindt
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: January 18, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

Matt Kindt does it again with this masterpiece of a story. Dept. H Volume 1: Pressure is first and foremost a crime story. Just because it happens over a half dozen miles beneath the ocean’s surface is purely circumstantial, right? And if it was your father that was killed, would the location be too much for you? Of course not.

So when Mia is approached to investigate the death of her father in an underwater research facility, she did her duty as both an investigator and as a daughter, she went where she was needed. But with only a handful of suspects, one of whom is her brother, she has to tread carefully.

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: January 4, 2017

I remember when I reviewed the first issue of this series, back in March. I found the premiere issue to be both entertaining and intriguing. Now, after seeing the first six issues brought together in this graphic novel, nothing has changed in my mind. The Shadow Glass is one of my favorite comics of 2016.

Kabuki Library Edition Volume 4
Written by David Mack
Art by David Mack (with Rick Mays)
Cover by David Mack
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: November 2, 2016
Cover Price: $39.99

There are an amazing quantity of folks that I appreciate for one reason or another. Some are writers, others are artists, and even a few are activists. But no one person covers the full range like David Mack. I have been a fan ever since I first discovered his Kabuki comics when they were being published by Caliber Press back in the nineties. Many publishers and opuses later, Mack has become one of the most prolific of all comicdom’s creators. With his latest release, Kabuki Library Edition Volume 4, he concludes his large, heavy bound editions of his iconic characters and their tales.

Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, And The Bird header

Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, And The Bird Hardcover
Written by Caitlin R. Kiernan
Art by Daniel Warren Johnson
Colors by Carlos Badilla
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Cover by Greg Ruth
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: August 31, 2016
Cover Price: $19.99

It’s not every day that I get to read an introspective comic book that deals with a character experiencing their own personal hell. But leave it to Dark Horse Comics to give me exactly what I didn’t know I needed! Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, And The Bird is a shining example of why I keep coming back to them for unique stories and comics! Please, allow me to elaborate further.

Dancy Flammarion is dead. She knows it and we know it. But apparently death comes in varying degrees of
permanence, as it seems she is being tempted/threatened with life. And though she repeatedly declines, sometimes events can spiral out of our control. Much akin to her tenuous grasp on her sanity.

Kingsway West #1 header

Kingsway West #1
Written by Greg Pak
Art by Mirko Colak
Colors by Wil Quintana
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Mirko Colak and Wil Quintana
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: August 24, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m a long time fan of westerns. I grew up watching The Lone Ranger, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and the like. The concept of man living so close to nature and constantly at odds with both his environment and other humans appealed to me for some reason. Later, my attention turned to fantasy novels and role-playing games but the love of a good story set in the Old West was always there. So when someone comes along and mixes the two, I’m always down for a good a read. Kingsway West #1 is most definitely trying its best to find a place in my heart.

Read on and I’ll tell you why!
