Dark Horse has provided BF with information on all their exciting newly announced projects.

BioWare’s critically acclaimed video game returns to comics with Mass Effect: Evolution!

Mass Effect: Evolution reunites the creative team of Redemption with Mac Walters, Lead Writer of Mass Effect 2 and the upcoming Mass Effect 3, writing the story and bringing his unmatched understanding of Mass Effect’s characters to the comics. Walters is joined by John Jackson Miller (Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, The Invincible Iron Man), who scripts the series, and Omar Francia (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2), who returns as artist. The team will be joined by Massimo Carnevale (Y: The Last Man, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), who provides stunning painted covers.

The four-issue series offers the most revealing glimpse to date of humans’ first steps into the wider universe of Mass Effect. Opening in a time of war, Evolution introduces a younger and very different Illusive Man, fighting to maintain human autonomy from alien interference, a cause that takes him behind enemy lines and into conflict with some of Mass Effect’s most dangerous figures. His journey from dissident to power broker presents new insights into the Mass Effect saga for existing fans, while the focus on the earliest days of Cerberus provides a riveting story of action and intrigue for sci-fi readers of all stripes.
Dark Horse Presents returns to print in 2011!

Dark Horse Presents, the title that started it all, returns to print under the editorship of Dark Horse President and Publisher Mike Richardson and featuring the comics work from Paul Chadwick, Carla Speed McNeil, Harlan Ellison, Mike Mignola, Howard Chaykin and many, many more! — the perfect book with which to celebrate Dark Horse’s 25th anniversary!

Targeted for a March 2011 release!

Troublemaker concludes with November’s Volume 2!

There’s no smooth sailing for Alex Barnaby and Sam Hooker in the second volume of best-selling author Janet Evanovich’s graphic-novel adventure, Troublemaker.

Barnaby, Hooker, Rosa, Felicia, and Beans the St. Bernard, set sail to the Florida Keys in order to find the wooden body of Baron Samedi that matches their recently acquired . . . and stolen . . . wooden hand.  But in the world of Petro Voodoo a hand for a hand and a Baron for a boat is fair play.  When the Happy Hooker disappears from its mooring in the Keys, Barnaby and Hooker have to find a way back to Miami with the stolen body of Baron Samedi.  Ransom notes for the Happy Hooker, a sack of snakes, and a ticked off chicken, leave only one place safe enough to hide a body... Hooker’s mom’s house—a situation that makes the sack of snakes look like chump change.

Written by Janet and Alex Evanovich, and illustrated by Jöelle Jones (Dr. Horrible, Token), Troublemaker volume two brings you double the trouble in the heart of Miami and on the shores of the Keys!

Dethklok creates comics Metalocalypse!

They’re the most brutal black-metal band on the planet, cutting a ferocious swath through the world’s economies and playing massive shows that leave their unwaveringly loyal fans shredded —literally. Five men prophesied to bring about the Metalocalypse, they are DETHKLOK . . . and they are about to enter the food chain. After a series of sponsorship deals goes sour, Dethklok launches a new business venture—a line of frozen meals called HypothermiFoods—in hopes of reclaiming their metal throne. Two things stand in their way: the enigmatic Tribunal of world leaders sworn to topple the band, and their own incompetence. Meanwhile, Dr. Rockzo the Rock n’ Roll Clown relives the ka-ka-ka-cocaine fueled nightmare of getting axed from big time hair rockers Zazz Blammymatazz!
From the depths of Mordhaus comes Dethklok! Based on the wildly popular Adult Swim series Metalocalypse, with stories conjured by series creator Brendon Small and series director/designer Jon Schnepp, this most brutal of all miniseries is scripted by Jeremy Barlow (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Supersized) and illustrated by Lucas Marangon (R.I.P.D, Star Wars: Tag and Bink are Dead, Hellcyon). Cover by The Goon creator Eric Powell, variant cover by Jon Schnepp.

For mature readers who like metal, murder and frozen meat!

Axe Cop comes to Dark Horse!

The webcomic about a axe-wielding cop and his bevy of bizarre and truly awesome friends that took the internet by storm in 2010 is set to lay down the law on the print medium by teaming with Dark Horse Comics. Written by the 5-year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his 29-year-old brother Ethan Nicolle, the online adventures of Axe Cop will be collected by Dark Horse for a December release and followed up in Spring of 2011 by a three-issue full-color miniseries involving a time travel story that only the team behind Axe Cop could tell. Comic readers, get ready to have your heads chopped off all over again!

Attendees of San Diego Comic-Con International should keep an eye out for a special “Axe Can” comic from the Brothers Nicolle!


Mike Mignola, John Arcudi and John Severin team for Witchfinder: Lost and Gone Forever

Following up on the success of Witchfinder: In the Service of Angels, Lost and Gone Forever is a continuation of Edward Grey’s adventures that finds him stateside in the American Frontier of the late 1800s. Legendary artist John Severin joins the team of Mike Mignola and John Arcudi to tell this tale full of monsters and gunslingers set for a February 2011 release.

Lost and Gone Forever is a five-issue miniseries with covers by Severin and Mignola.


Popular webseries The Guild returns to comics!

Fans who can’t get enough of Felicia Day’s multiple Streamy award-winning webseries The Guild are in luck. After learning the origin story of Cyd Sherman (aka Codex) in 2010’s three-issue miniseries The Guild, Dark Horse Comics delves back into the past to deliver five one-shots examining the lives of series regulars and guildies Zaboo, Vork, Bladezz, Clara and Tinkerballa in the time period between The Guild comic and the series' first season. The first of these issues will look in on Herman Holden, the man who would one day become the extremely frugal and overly organized guild leader for the Knights of Good: Vork. Co-written by Day and Jeff Lewis, who portrays Vork on the webseries, keep an eye out for The Guild’s comic return in 2011.

Let Me In comes to comics in December with the four-issue miniseries Let Me In: Crossroads!

Being forced to spend eternity as a vampire—trapped in the mind and body of a child, with slaughter the only recourse for survival—is torture enough. But when Abby finds herself faced with a ruthless real-estate tycoon willing to do anything to get at the property she and her caretaker call home, far more monstrous torments await. In a small community torn apart by vicious men who are consumed by greed, wrath, and envy, she will learn which deadly sin is truly deadliest.

Dark Horse Comics and Exclusive’s legendary Hammer Films team up to take you even deeper into a tragic world of sophisticated horror with Let Me In: Crossroads, a chilling prequel to the highly anticipated film Let Me In. Written by Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Predators), with art by Patric Reynolds (Abe Sapien: The Haunted Boy, Serenity: Float Out) and covers by Sean Phillips (Sleeper, Criminal, Incognito).

This four-issue miniseries will have specially enhanced variant covers for each issue.
