DHC Announces 12 Creator-Owned Series Ahead Of SDCC

imageDark 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)
* EI8HT, Rafael Albuquerque And Mike Johnson (February)
* Neverboy, Shaun Simon And Tyler Jenkins And Kelly Fitzpatrick (March)
* The Black Hammer, Jeff Lemire And Dean Ormston (March)
* PastAways, Matt Kindt And Scott Kolins (March)
* Rebels, 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.
