Join comicdom's ultimate odd couple as they fight to keep their secrets secret and learn to live together in peace. PLUS: an origin, a power-up, a team-up, a break-up, a breakdown, a betrayal, a helpful fashion tip, sex, violence, vandalism, death, some jokes, young love, a whole lot of lies, and epiphanies all around.

    BLESSED THISTLE GN

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Steve Morris

    A desperate young man breaks into a house and finds its owner awake inside; a school teacher returns from a tropical vacation carrying a disturbing secret; a girl's playground bullying triggers a horrifying event-three separate stories inextricably linked by forces beyond the awareness of their participants.

    The winner of Dark Horse's 2004 New Recruits contest, Blessed Thistle heralds the debut of an unsettling new voice in graphic fiction, Steve Morris. Relentless in its questioning, unflinching in its answers, this thinking-man's thriller delves into the heart of suburbia and reveals it to be very dark indeed. Scary and surprising, unexpected and unpretentious, this original graphic novel sheds a terrifying light on a few ordinary people and the simple decisions that change their lives forever.

    Writers: Steve Niles

    Covers: Tim Bradstreet
    Colorist: Michelle Madsen

    Part 2 of 4
    A hospital bed might seem like a nice, safe place for an injured man to be, but not if he's Cal McDonald. As if it weren't bad enough that Cal was hospitalized after being on the receiving end of an extreme case of police brutality--now he's enduring an even more surreal horror, one known commonly to drug addicts as "withdrawal." Cal's body may be healing but the nightmare visions the withdrawal brings threaten to tear what remains of his sanity to shreds. And when Cal finally does make it to the other side of this ordeal, he wakes up only to discover that the world's deepest, oldest evil--the vampire Nosferatu --came calling and took Cal's ex Sabrina with him!

    Publisher:

    Writers: Various
    Pencils: Various

    Part 3 of 3
    The final issue of this anthology miniseries goes out with a bang as comics and Hollywood stars alike unite for one last romp through the world of Eric Powell's The Goon.

    The issue begins with the return of Powell's pal, co-creator of the Comedy Central hit show Reno: 911! Thomas Lennon to the comics scene, teamed up with B.P.R.D. artist-extraordinaire Guy Davis! Further stories come from Arvid Nelson, creator of Dark Horse's newest horror title Rex Mundi, along side Humberto Ramos, hot off the heels of his debut on Marvel's Wolverine and co-creator of the Dark Horse miniseries Revelations; as well as a very special appearance by British indie artist Roger Langridge, creator of the critically acclaimed Fred the Clown! And as a special bonus, Dark Horse's own intrepid editor Scott Allie also brings to life his own little corner of The Goon universe with the help of Jefferson Street Studio-mate Todd Herman, as they examine the life of one of the book's most underrated heroes, Willy Nagel.

    ONE MISSED CALL 1 + 2 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Yasushi Akimoto
    Pencils: Mayumi Shihou
    Covers: Mayumi Shihou

    It's an epidemic of accidental death! Multiple college students receive odd voicemails from themselves, messages from the future, and all they contain are the screams of their own deaths. A few days later, at the date and time of the message's posting, they die in mysterious accidents, and oddly enough, each have a candy in their mouths.

    Directed in Japan by the famed Takashi Miike, One Missed Call is coming to America. And to celebrate, Dark Horse is delighted to bring you the manga based on the movie. Full of mystery, horror, and suspense. Intensely drafted in Japan by Yasushi Akimoto and Mayumi Shihou, One Missed Call might make you think twice about pressing the answer button.

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Zach Howard, Sean Murphy, Reed Buccholz
    Pencils: Zach Howard, Sean Murphy
    Colorist: Charlie Kirchoff

    What do you get when you mix two down-and-out space-idiots, an angry space-sexpot, a priceless space-idol, and a herd of murderous, revenge-seeking space-zealots? How would we know--we asked you! See Quinn and Krunk try to entertain the trigger-happy 3-Dog and his faithful cohorts with their butt-clenching tale of high adventure. See Quinn finally sort out his relationship with the irresistible Neoki with the simple aid of a breaching bomb. See Krunk tackle the awesome task of figuring out what his mom wants for Mother's Day (what do you get a lady who wears a welding mask to the hair salon?), but figures out how to cure his insomnia--with a brick!

    Created without a lick of shame by Zach Howard (Shaun of the Dead) and Sean Murphy (Scarecrow: Year One; Off Road), with screenwriter Hans Rodionoff, Outer Orbit is high-velocity, intergalactic action that puts the ass in assinine, featuring more grown men in thongs than a Lance Bass calendar shoot!

    TANPENSHU VOLUME 1 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Hiroki Endo

    Heart wrenching and complex, Tanpenshu, Volume one, is the first of two collections of powerful, shorter works by manga master Hiroki Endo (creator of the critically acclaimed, long-running Eden manga series). The three stories in this first volume are mature explorations of humanity's constant, fumbling attempts to find hope and meaning in a confusing, violent world.

    A disfigured misfit befriends a doomed yakuza outcast, a group of school kids fail to see the anger that's about to boil over from one of their own, and members of an experimental theatre troupe embark on a project that will test both their friendships and the group's grasp on reality.

    THE WORLD BELOW TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Paul Chadwick
    Pencils: Paul Chadwick
    Covers: Paul Chadwick
    Inks: Ron Randall

    Fifteen years ago, from a hole in the ground in rural Washington, a tiny flying machine emerged and Charles Hoy found it. From all appearances, this small vehicle wasn't built with any existing human technology and Hoy made a fortune selling that technology to the first eager customer. Now with his fortunes dwindling and his curiosity piqued with more than a decade of questioning, Hoy has hired a team of adventurers to enter this vast, underground realm in hopes of bringing back even greater discoveries. But while the team expects the unexpected and is prepared for danger, nothing they can imagine will prepare them for The World Below.

    With The World Below, Paul Chadwick-creator of the internationally acclaimed Concrete-delivers a fever-dream hybrid of classic rip-roaring science-fiction adventure and quirky, unsettling psychological drama. Chadwick's unsurpassed storytelling skill and eye for detail and realism make The World Below a journey unlike any other.

    Moon Knight enters Civil War!
    Three months back on the job, and they’re already coming out of the woodwork. The bad guys you expect. The gangsters and the hoods with old axes to grind. They all come with the territory. But the heroes--them you don’t expect. Popping up to give you the eyeball and make sure you’re toeing the line. Their line. Spider-Man and his wisecracks...Frank Castle, the angel of death himself, telling you he’ll be keeping an eye on you...even the fugitive Captain America, with a word to say about crashing aircraft into the sides of buildings in New York City. And now, this other thing. Someone is out there. Someone hitting the old haunts, scenes of the old crimes. Leaving messages. Leaving bodies. Someone who knows you. Someone who crushes steel and pulls off limbs. All to get your attention. Someone out of your league!

    MODERN MASTERS VOLUME 10: KEVIN MAGUIRE

    Publisher:
    TwoMorrows Publishing
    By: George Khoury and Eric Nolen-Weathington

    In 1987, a year after Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns turned comics grim and gritty, artist Kevin Maguire proved that comics could still be fun, with the release of the “all-new” Justice League. His style was the perfect match for the humorous dialogue and character-driven stories, and the unlikely series quickly developed a large following. But the glue that held the series together was Maguire’s ability to convey emotion on the page. He has an uncanny knack for capturing just the right facial expression and body language in his figures. The Justice League, Captain America, the X-Men, the Defenders... they are all actors on Maguire’s stage, and he directs them with the ability of a true Modern Master. This new volume in the Modern Masters series, by George Khoury and Eric Nolen-Weathington, features a career-spanning Kevin Maguire interview and tons of artwork, including a large gallery section featuring many rare and unpublished sketches and finished pieces. This 128-page volume presents the ultimate look at the work of a true Modern Master: Kevin Maguire!
