Lotta Dark Horse Action From Last Night - Grindhouse, Buzzkill, Occultist, Witch Hunt And Hellboy

ghdom1I flaked out on the Dark Horse panel last night. But they did announce a whole lot of stuff. Here’s some.

We mentioned this a short while ago, now Dark Horse have released the full details of Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight, an eight-issue series of two-issue stories written by digital comic pioneer Alex De Campi and drawn by Chris Peterson, Simon Fraser, Federica Manfredi and Gary Erskine. Bee Vixens from Mars, Prison Ship Anteres, Bride of Blood and Flesh Feast Of The Devil Doll, with covers from Francesco Francavilla, Dan Panosian, and Coop.

Issue one (with the bee vixens) out in October.

OCCUL #1 FC FNLOctober also brings the return of The Occultist from Tim Seeley and Mike Norton.

When the Sword, a mysterious book of powerful spells, binds itself to him, the fact that Rob’s life has been falling apart doesn’t seem like such a big deal. To survive, Rob must learn to control the book’s unpredictable magic, while his life slips even further out of control . . .

An evil witch doctor wants the Sword to reject Rob, now known as the Occultist, by deciding that he is a bad host in the ongoing war against the realm of the dead. The solution lies in a Catholic schoolgirl who dabbles in death for a quick high.

BZKL #1 FC FNLBefore then, September has Buzzkill from Donny Cates, Mark Reznicek and Geoff Shaw, a superhero who gets his powers from drinking alcohol.

Hang on, I feel a swipe file coming on here. Brown Bottle from Viz Comic anyone?

 Ruben is not your average alcoholic; he’s an unstoppable superhero who derives his powers from imbibing massive amounts of alcohol. After all the disasters it’s caused in his personal life, he’s ready to get clean . . . and the city’s supervillains couldn’t be happier!

WH #1 FC FNLThen we have Witch Hunt from Victor Gischler and Juan Ferreyra in September.

Cassian Steele is boss of the werewolf mafia in the Big Easy, and he’s got a problem. The old witch Verona, who knows his secret, has gone into hiding. Cassian wants her dead. So he sends out the word: an open contract. The first monster to dust Verona gets a big payday.

Werewolf mobsters, vampire maids, voodoo wizards, zombie ninjas, and even a rogue priest show up to try to collect the bounty. What they don’t realize is that Barnabus Black, a demon desperately trying to regain his halo, is her protection.

HBYIB #3 FC FNL +LAYERSThen, as seen last night, Itty Bitty Hellboy for August by Art Baltazar and Franco.

A ghost named Rasputin has been spotted. And Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. are going to find out what’s he up to. Who is Hellboy, anyway? Why does he have such a big hand, and what is it used for? Who’s weirder, he or his friends? What is the B.P.R.D.? And what does chicken soup have to do with all of it? All this and more will be answered in the debut issue, where BIG things happen to Itty Bitty Hellboy!
