This may well spoil things for people trying to flip variants on eBay, but it looks like Books A Million will let you order (and pre-order) variant covers off their website. And it looks like they’re expanding how many different publishers they’re getting variants from:
Dark Horse is turning their distribution model inside out for three of their low selling series. Sundowners, The Ghost Fleet, and Resurrectionists are all shifting to digital first comics for sale on the Dark Horse application. Graphic novels will be available, but only after the stories finish their digital runs. These titles are all creator-owned series and […]
A graphic novel set in the Great Depression era New York, exploring capers at a hotel. SOUNDS GOOD, right? when it’s by Jonathan Case (Green River Killer, Dear Creature) it’s even better. The New Deal will debut from Dark Horse in September. It’s very exciting to see Big Five publishers like Dark Horse putting out […]
It’s true! As Instagrammed by Portland resident and Boilerplate co-author Anina Bennett, Dark Horse’s founder and owner Mike Richardson is part of an ad campaign for New Relic, a software development company that counts Dark Horse as a client.
Smart choice, as it allow great use of the Hellboy imagery as well.
Well, this is interesting. Although Dark Horse sells its periodical comics exclusively through its own app, and has never been available on Comixology, they’ve just signed a deal with Sequential, the stand alone graphic novel app—making it the first the first third-party digital comics app to distribute Dark Horse. UPDATE: Todd Allen has reminded me that Dark Horse GNs were available for a while on Comixology a few years ago but aren’t any more.
If there’s a textbook that exist on making comics, then Eric Powell probably wrote about half of it. The five time Eisner Award winner consistently crafts quality stories with every book he produces. His latest, The Goon: Once Upon A Hard Time is yet another example of how great a work of art comic books can be.
If you have room on your shelf for ONE MORE omnibus series, make a little room for Dark Horse’s just announced omnibus series for The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. Eiji Otsuka and Housui Yamazaki’s manga is a dark humored tale about five college students who form a special team to help spirits move on. It’s […]
There’s X-Men, Xzibit, the band X (if you get the reference I’ll buy you a soft pretzel if you’re onsite at SDCC), and there’s Dark Horse Comics vigilante simply known as X. Since the characters reboot under writer Duane Swierczynski and artist Eric Nguyen the series continues to be a rollercoaster of highs and lows.
By Bruce Lidl Lost somewhat in the initial burst of news from last week’s ImageExpo was the announcement of a new Image Humble Bundle offering, beginning that morning and lasting until January 21. The “Humble Image Comics Bundle 2: Image Firsts” is a massive collection of digital comics that can be purchased for whatever price […]
This preview of the new Richard Corben book from Dark Horse came in my email yesterday to promote the FOC of the book—the last day that retailers can adjust orders. So I missed posting it when it would do any good (I was in meetings and on deadline yesterday). But perhaps consumers will be interested as well! Corben is a powerhouse of the first wave of self-publishing and “ground level” publishing in the 80s, and he’s still rocking out with the art.
