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 command ship Helios drifts through deep space on its way to LV-223. They are on a quest to find, perhaps, the origins of life on Earth. With a full crew of scientists, and soldiers, the ship lumbers towards what is supposed to be a desert moon. Much to the crew’s surprise, they land in the middle of a dense rainforest that holds terrors beyond their imagination.
There’s a problem with deep space: it’s boring. Space is huge. It’s hugely, bigly huge. Did you ever take car trips with your family, and drive through the so-called “fly-over states” and learn why they’re fly-over states? Space is one big fly-over state. Prometheus: Fire and Stone #1 is hobbled early on by the vastness in that where there is nothing to do, there is nothing to read about. The story begins near enough to the landing that we meet some of the crew, and figure out what their objective is, but there was still a lot of nothing happening. So, long review short, the beginning bit is tedious.

Welcome, my friends, to the dark and deadly world of Geralt. Known as a Witcher, he hunts and kills monsters as a profession. Based on the highly successful stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher #1 is the first in a five-part mini-series from Dark Horse Comics. There are even a series of video games, a movie, and a television series in this franchise, but we are here to talk about the new comic series so let me get back on track.
Our story opens with a lone huntsman, Jakob, fishing for his dinner when Geralt rides into his camp. Making a bit of small talk and sharing food and drink, the hunter is startled when the Witcher jumps into the river and slays a monster with ease. Settling in for the night, Jakob tells Geralt the story of how he “sort of” became a widower. It seems Jakob and his wife Marta were traveling when they were attacked by a marauding band of evil creatures. And while his wife was taken from him, she never quite left him. Sometimes sensing her near, he has no fear. Though he is definitely haunted by the loss of his wife for whom he cares so much.
It’s time to take a trip back to the land of Ooo with a preview of KaBOOM! Studios’ Adventure Time: The Flip Side #3 (of 6). Written by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover (Bandette) with art by Wook Jin Clark, this is another in the line of great Adventure Time comics that KaBOOM! has produced.
In this issue, Finn and Jake need to get the help of the Monkey Wizard so they can kidnap Painting Princess. With Marceline helping them out, will they finally reach their goal?
As you can see from the pages below, Clark’s style doesn’t look exactly like what you normally see on the show, but it has the same energy, and that’s what’s important. Tobin and Coover have been doing great work on Bandette, and it’s great to see KaBOOM! lining up great talent to work on their Adventure Time books.
Check out our exclusive look here below of the first batch of pages from Adventure Time: The Flip Side #3 as well as the four covers from Clark, Nicole Miles, Heather Danforth, and Sloane Leong, and be sure to pick up the issue on March 5, 2014 or pre-order it now.
