Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles releasing on August 3, 2016. My picks this week are the Tarzan graphic novel and Baltimore, both are must haves in my book! Check it all out and see what’s right for you!
Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden are at it again, collaborating once more to bring us another adventurous story in the life of their deadly vampire hunter, Captain Lord Henry Baltimore. First of a three-issue mini-series, but number twenty-one in the full series, Baltimore: The Witch Of Harju #1 begins as many tales do, in the middle. Why, you ask? Because that’s where the action is and this comic is loaded to the top with death and mystery.
When your home is gone and those who raised you and trained you have also become your greatest betrayers, whom can you trust? In Dark Horse’s The Portent: Ashes, a sequel graphic novel to Peter Bergting‘s The Portent: Duende, Bergting brings the character of Lin to the forefront as she searches for answers of her own.
Ten years after having defeated the demon Guishen, the wood nymph turned warrior Lin finds herself returned to the land of the living from the spirit realm, only to discover she has no physical home to return to. Once again torn between the coven of witches that would use her, her respect for a father figure of old, and her love for the warrior Milo, Lin must travel the outskirts of an old, yet oddly new land to confront those who would bring it harm – even if those individuals are the ones who helped raise her.
Acclaimed artist and storyteller Peter Bergting (known for Strange Girl, Crysis, and Dark Sun) brings European folklore alive and drops it right into the recent past of the 20th Century in the pages of Domovoi from Dark Horse Comics.
