Quote from: rusty on November 26, 2018, 09:53:36 amI am all caught up with Dark Horse now.Aliens Dead Orbit 1-4 - This was a rather pedestrian Aliens series. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't all that great either.
Quote from: rusty on November 26, 2018, 09:53:36 amMignola books - These make up a large part of Dark Horse's books and are pretty goodHellboy KrampusnachtKoschei the Deathless 1-6 - A man in the 1400s is adopted by a dragon, gains powers and near immortality. Pretty good.Lobster Johnson Mangekyo - An ongoing Lobster Johnson series would be nice, but I'll take the one shots and miniseries if that is all we can get.Rasputin the Voice of the Dragon 1-5 - Rasputin is recruited by the Nazis for occult purposes, though much of this story deals with a younger Trevor Bruttenholm in 1941 before he starts working for the special branch that deals with weird bollocks.The Visitor How and Why He Stayed 1-5 - An alien was sent to assassinate Hellboy when he arrived on Earth because of the danger he posed, but couldn't because Hellboy was an innocent child at arrival. He stays on Earth and observes Hellboy's growth to make sure he does not become a threat and the Visitor also builds a life for himself, too.
Quote from: rusty on November 26, 2018, 09:53:36 amDoctor Star and the Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows 1-4 - Jeff Lemire explores a scientist who discovers how to tap a new form of energy and which allows him to become a superhero. He spends all his time with this and neglects his family.
Quote from: rusty on November 26, 2018, 09:53:36 amResident Alien An Alien in New York 1-4 - The doctor sees images of artwork from a New York artist who went missing 20 years earlier. The artwork is excellent, but it is the phone number in alien script that draws his attention and he follows the lead to New York. I have really enjoyed the various Resident Alien books. I guess the series concludes with the next miniseries.
Quote from: rusty on November 29, 2018, 09:59:48 amI was disappointed with the new reprint lines since they are essentially 'best of' collections rather than being a complete reprint series. When they were announced, I thought that they would be starting a comprehensive reprint line with perhaps Archie and Me #1-10 in volume 1, 11-20 in volume 2 and so on, but I must have misunderstood them somewhere. I'll just stick to my complete runs of all those titles. If they had done it the other way, I probably would have purchased them to support the line anyway. The few books that I don't already have were mostly covered in the Dark Horse Archives, at least for the Archie stories.
