DHC Announces 12 Creator-Owned Series Ahead Of SDCC
Dark Horse Comics sent out a press release yesterday -- you can read it in full here
-- confirming their intention to publish 12 forthcoming creator-owned titles in the months ahead, from a wide variety of working creators. Dark Horse has always spent some significant portion of their resources in this area, and as recently as a few years ago re-invested in facilitating this kind of work from people like Peter Bagge and Steve Parkhouse.
The 12 titles includes a comics sequel to the film and prose work Fight Club
, which makes me believe word on some of these was already out there.
The books, their basic creative teams and their announced release dates are:
* Colder: The Bad Seed
, Paul Tobin And Juan Ferreyra (October)
* Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.
, Mike Mignola And John Arcudi And Alexander Maleev (December)'
* Lady Killer
, Jöelle Jones And Jamie S. Rich (January)
* Dead Vengeance
, Bill Morrison And Stéphane Roux (January)
, Rafael Albuquerque And Mike Johnson (February)
, Shaun Simon And Tyler Jenkins And Kelly Fitzpatrick (March)
* The Black Hammer
, Jeff Lemire And Dean Ormston (March)
, Matt Kindt And Scott Kolins (March)
, Brian Wood And Andrea Mutti And Jordie Bellaire And Tula Lotay (April)
* Harrow County
, Cullen Bunn, Tyler Crook (April)
* Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, And The Bird
, Caitlin R. Kiernan And Jöelle Jones (May)
* Fight Club 2
, Chuck Palahniuk And Cameron Stewart And David Mack (May)
There's a lot there that's potentially interesting, and I'm happy that so much of it is brand-new material. I think that makes for a healthier marketplace.
