Dark Horse Announces Horror Line
By Brian Jacks


Dark Horse has been a leader in manga, licensed, and creator owned comics, but come February 2003 the publisher will be adding horror to the list.

The "thrills and chills" begin this February with the release of Hellboy: Weird Tales #1. Weird Tales is an anthology series featuring an array of talent all with their own unique take on Mike Mignola's acclaimed creation. Weird Tales #1 features a stunning cover and stories by John Cassaday as well as art and stories by Andi Watson, Fabian Nicieza, and more.

Hot on the heels of Hellboy: Weird Tales comes The Art of Hellboy hardcover in March. Featuring previously unpublished art, unused and unfinished covers, and drawing upon ten years of sketchbooks, The Art of Hellboy provides the ultimate inside look at Mike Mignola's design, storytelling, and color theory. This is a must for any Hellboy fan or for someone simply interested in fine art. Truly a gorgeous package!

Also up in March is The Devil's Footprints. This mini series written by Scott Allie (Star Wars Empire) with art by Bran Horton and Paul Lee (Buffy) is the story of Brandon Waite, a young man who must delve into his father's dark past to end the curse on his family. The Devil's Footprints "combines moody, atmospheric horror with two-fisted demon fighting."

April brings you the "chilling" Blackburne Covenant. Fabian Nicieza, one of the best-selling writers of superhero comics, teams up with Italian horror artist Stefano Raffaele to tell a tale about a popular fantasy novelist, who unbeknownst to him wrote a book that revealed secrets that the Blackburne Covenant would kill to keep quiet.

May brings more horror with acclaimed 30 Days of Night creators Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith presenting Criminal Macabre: A Cal McDonald Mystery #1. This mini series features monster hunter Cal McDonald on the trail of something big when he notices different races of monsters coming together for an unholy purpose.

Rounding out the month is the first in a series of B.P.R.D. one shots. These books feature the cast of unforgettable characters that work with Hellboy in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. Michael Avon Oeming and Miles Gunter bring you story and art on issue #1.

In June the horror continues but this time Dark Horse says it's "packed with laughs" as Eric Powell's The Goon makes its Dark Horse debut. Battling the undead and an assorted array of unearthly creatures is all in a day's work for The Goon, says the publisher. Look for original material as well as reprint collections of Eric's self-published early Goon<.i> tales.

August brings the War of the Worlds-inspired Scarlet Traces. Set post the events of the classic book, Ian Eginton and D'israeli bring you a chilling take on a society using newly found alien technology that comes with a price no one expected.

Two more debuts arrive in the fall. In September comes Hauntings, a hard cover anthology featuring tales by Mike Mignola, P. Craig Russell, Evan Dorkin and others. October brings Corpus Monstrum, a collection of Gary Gianni's acclaimed Monster Men stories.
