We’ve all been missing the weekly Dark Horse Presents reviews so here we are! Back again reviewing the greatest comic book anthology ever. Time to look at the awesomely huge 28th volume! This one was released to celebrate four years of Dark Horse Comics existing! No mean feat in the 80’s when Marvel and DC ruled comicdom with iron fists!
This comic book contained four AWESOME stories….. and two comedic monster throwaways in my opinion. Maybe cheesy monster comic short stories are your thing! If so you’d probably enjoy Roachmill or Mr Monster. It isn’t my thing so less said about those the better.
Homicide by John Arcudi and Doug Mahnke really causes you to be afraid with this intense episode. The use of Pat Brosseau’s lettering for the shotgun blasts and cocking really hits hard. Well done!
Concrete by Paul Chadwick AGAIN proves to be way ahead of its time! This conversation on what we are doing to our planet and the realization that we’re connected to it needs to happen today! Thankful he was bringing it up in 1987, saddened that we still neglect this topic in 2017.
ZONE! I’ve been waiting for Michael Kraiger’s intelligently done comic book to make an appearance! Love his use of grey tones in his art and how he uses the lettering to draw you into his work. We’ll see more of this as DHP continues!
You might be bad ass. But you’ll never be Black Cross clutching barbwire after killing a small army bad ass. Chris Warner again delivers on this emotional action as Black Cross wages his solo war against an immoral enemy.
Almost reached a few of my favorite stories! Eager to read and review on!
