'Wyrd' #3 Causes a Sharp Appreciation of Other Comics

‘Wyrd’ #3 Causes a Sharp Appreciation of Other Comics

I can honestly say that I am relieved that Wyrd is ending next month. It’s either a convoluted mess of a title, or I somehow hit my head right before reading every issue. At least it’s consistent. Curt Pires and Antonio Fuso set out to deliver a story about a super-spy who cannot die. Pitor […]

'Aliens: Resistance' #4 Explores the Nuclear Option

‘Aliens: Resistance’ #4 Explores the Nuclear Option

Zula Hendricks and Amanda Ripley have tracked a colony ship to a jungle moon that the Weyland-Yutani corporation has been using to test a new generation of genetically modified xenomorphs.

B.P.R.D.: The Devil You Know #15 hit comics retailers today, marking the very last issue of the series, and in a way, the entire Hellboy universe.

‘The Witcher; of Flesh and Flame’ Finally Sputters to Life (REVIEW)

We’ve been pretty hard on The Witcher: of Flesh and Flame, Dark Horse Comics‘ latest offering from the venerable fantasy franchise in conjunction with CD Projekt Red. Our harsh criticism was duly earned, and we’ll stand by that. It would be easy to cash in on a property as popular as The Witcher series without […]

Uneven Art Nearly Upends Compelling ‘Wyrd’ (REVIEW)

Take one unbreakable investigator, mix in a dose super-human menace, and add just a dash of  international intrigue, and you get Wyrd, a brand-new paranormal series from Dark Horse Comics. Pitor Wyrd is a hard-drinking, hard-living problem solver for hire- whenever the United States government runs into a situation that can’t be resolved through traditional […]


Ripley and Hendricks team up for Alien: Resistance from Dark Horse (REVIEW)

Amanda Ripley and Zula Hendricks join forces to take down the Weyland-Yutani corporation in the ambitious Aliens: Resistance from Dark Horse Comics.

Zula Hendricks has […]

Amanda Ripley is Coming to Mystery Alien Project

Back in November, 20th Century Fox filed some interesting trademark for something called Alien: Blackout, making us (and pretty much every other outlet on the web) believe the same thing- that a new Alien video game was coming. There really hasn’t been anything definitive until today, when the official Alien Twitter account shared a 30-second video mentioning an […]

Dark Horse Expands Art of Comic-Book Inking

Is this your basic understanding of comic book inking? If so, Dark Horse Comics plans to change your mind with an expanded edition of the industry-standard inking manual, The Art of Comic-Book Inking.
