Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles released on December 30, 2015. My personal favorite is Conan The Avenger #21, as it’s a classic work that showcases what it means to be a Cimmerian barbarian.

The first thing I think of when I hear the name Michael Turner is fantastic artwork. And even now, five years after the loss of this great comic artist, his legacy lives on in Fathom #2. This is the fifth volume of the series and it has continued to be a beautiful tribute to the founder of Aspen Comics. I have no doubt he would be just as pleased with this as I was.
This issue starts off with a brief look at a very remote city that is populated by a race known as the Blue. Their leader, a terrifyingly beautiful woman, has been grooming a young girl as a weapon of enormous power by enhancing her already superior genetics. Half a world away, our protagonist, Aspen Matthews, has engaged in an undersea battle with half a dozen water-breathing combatants who seem hell bent on killing her. Using her innate powers of water manipulation, she attempts to disperse their attack. Unknown to Aspen, however, her opponents also have a few tricks up their sleeves, metaphorically speaking that is.
The Fate of the Jedi novel series saw the revival of an ancient breed of Sith, from the days of the Lord Naga Sadow. This Lost Tribe of the Sith controlled the natives on the planet Kesh for centuries, until they finally found their way off planet, and into their old galaxy to face the Jedi Knights head on. Yet while the concept of the Lost Tribe of the Sith unfastens numerous possibilities for new stories set on the planet Kesh, the new Spiral trade paperback from Dark Horse instead delivers very little of unique value to the Expanded Universe.
It has been a few generations since the Sith Lords crash landed on Kesh, and the Tribe of the Sith have control of the main continent on the planet, populated by the native Keshiri. While the rulers work slowly and tediously for their eventual return to the stars and revenge on the galaxy, their underlings in this relatively new society strive for control and power of the Tribe itself.

Miss Fury #3 is the latest chapter in Dynamite’s latest Pulp Hero revival and one of the MOST confusing comics that I’ve ever read in recent memory. And, I’m loving every minute of it.
I hope writer Rob Williams has a scorecard for this book at home, because I’ve long since tossed mine out. No, I’m not stupid, but you have to agree when you’re reading a comic book about a time traveling hero who blinks and goes from 70 years in the past to 70 years in the future, you’d tend to get a little confused too. Not to mention cyborg Nazis who’re hiding in disguise are political figures in 2013 and trying to start World War II. That’s right, 2. It is this kind of “lets throw everything at the reader just for fun” action that I absolutely LOVE and here, Rob Williams totally makes it work for this book and the universe that it’s set in. To say that there’s a lot going on would be the understatement of the year. To say it’s pretty darn entertaining? Right on the money.
