Joss Whedon’s Sugarshock is getting a one-shot. Originally in MySpace Dark Horse Present, the Eisner award winning story is available October 21. $3.50. http://www.myspace.com/darkhorsepresents
This one-shot about the BPRD agent looks interesting enough but the cover by Dave Johnson does not look like Abe Sabien at all. Available October 28. $3.50
Conan The Cimmerian #15
Crom! This story takes place 10,000 years before Conan is around. Creepy looking cover art. Available 21. $2.99
Society collapses, people with superpowers are fighting evil. The cover is a pretty sweet homage to John and Yoko. This six issue miniseries is written by Michael Avon Oeming, the artist of Powers. There is an alternate cover by Matt Wagner. Available October 28. $2.99
Based on the characters created in Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay (which I demand you read if you haven’t). Brian K. Vaughn and Michael Chabon pen this reprinted in softcover tales. The biggest complaint I always had was that these stories were too expensive. Dark Horse apparently listened to myself and other people bitching! Available December 2. $14.95
Casper The Friendly Ghost 60th Anniversary
Dark Horse reprints a few rare Golden Age Casper stories. The cover has Casper in tears because he has failed Ghost Finishing School. Looks cute. Available November 25. $9.95
