Dark Horse Presents Volume 3
In this installment DHP continues three stories while introducing a new one. Still impressed with the quality of this anthology. This time around two of the stories really grabbed me while two didn’t hold my interest, which can often be the case with an anthology.
Mindwalk by Randy Stradley and Randy Emberlin
While I can see what the creators are trying to create here this story has lost my interest. A promising concept that is overwhelmed by melodrama. That said I think it would appeal to many, just not my cup of tea.
Again proving that for some creators the magic works! I can’t put my finger on why exactly I am always amazed by Concrete, but I think it has to do with the enjoyable artwork, insightful stories, quality character development, and the overall feel of the story.
Always a fan of Chris Warner’s artwork. Black Cross continues to develop and shape itself into a quality story that has the chance to speak upon society’s issues. One to keep an eye on!
Boris The Bear by James Dean Smith and Randy Stradley
Boris The Bear was one of those 80’s phenomenons that I never quite got even though I grew up during the 80’s. A living teddy bear and the struggles it faces in life. This episode seems to be primarily comic relief. Boris The Bear has potential but this introduction isn’t very appealing to me.
Looking forward to next week’s Dark Horse Presents! It will feature the first installment of Trekker and that looks interesting! Check back next week to see what it is!
