Our “Weekly” Dark Horse Presents Volumes 24, 25, 26, and 27

Our one week it’ll be weekly again weekly review of Dark Horse Presents the classic and amazing comic book anthology from back in the day! This week we’ll cover volumes 24-27. As they handle several story arcs we’ll look at the arcs themselves. 


Dark Horse Presents is truly where they started to flesh out the Aliens from Alien and I thought they did a fabulous job with the concept. They focus heavily on evolution and morality in these tales. 


Homicide is a detective/crime storyline that shows the dark side of humanity and sometimes that darkness gets into the heart of those trying to stop the darkness. Always interesting. 


Twilight Of Langdarro would fit in the same worlds that Michael Moorcock placed Elric in. A fantasy within a world already ancient beyond belief in which history has become legend. It could be our future or our past. 


Race Of Scorpions is the type of story that comic books were created to relay! The artwork is breathtaking and the intense story of an earth destroyed by climate change and transformed into a desert wasteland is impressive. A true epic. 

A few throwaway stories also graced these volumes and truthfully they didn’t add anything of value or take away from the quality of the anthology. This comic book still stands as one of my favorites ever.
