Welcome, readers! Here you’ll find this week’s comics releases from Dark Horse Comics! There’s a new Angel & Faith graphic novel, a new Alabaster, and a new Harrow County. What more could we ask for, right? Here’s the full list in case that wasn’t enough for you.
Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles released on December 2, 2015. My personal faves this week are Mystery Girl #1 and This Damned Band #5!
Dark Horse Comics has released a 7-page preview of Angel & Faith, Season 10 #1, which begins a new comic book season for the publisher’s continuation of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer expanded universe. Season 10, which is executive-produced by Buffy creator Joss Whedon, will be written by Victor Gischler with art by Will Conrad and colors by Michelle Madsen. Scott Fischer provided the cover for issue #1 (and it’s a truly gorgeous cover!).
Here below you can check out the 7-page preview and official solicitation for the 32-page full-color issue, which is currently available for pre-order, with a release date of April 2, 2014.
Fans of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel & Faith comics from Dark Horse Comics should be happy today to learn that both series will be coming back for new “seasons” in 2014, as was announced at New York Comic-Con 2013 this weekend.
There will be a slight creative team change as the old Angel & Faith team of writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs moving over to the main Buffy series. Taking over on Angel & Faith will be writer Victor Gischler (X-Men), with the art being handled by Will Conrad (Red Lanterns). Each series will run for 30 issues, with Buffy launching on March 19th, 2013 and Angel & Faith dropping on April 2nd.

Dynamite Entertainment continues its string of hit comics featuring pulp heroes with Miss Fury #1! Can it measure up to their other genre titles? Let’s take a look.
Wow. Rob Williams knows how to confuse AND entertain you in this book. On one page, even. I have to say, I REALLY enjoyed this book. It’s unlike anything that Dynamite is publishing today. Yes, it is part of Dynamite’s Pulp Heroes line, but that’s where the similarities to the rest of the line ends. This issue is literally all over the place, and it couldn’t be more enjoyable. I was shocked at how Miss Fury #1 was written: cliffhangers, mysteries, good old fashioned super heroics, fun, it’s really got it all. Not only do you get a fantastic adventure that finishing with a great cliffhanger ending, Williams also manages to sneak in a FULL and COMPLETE origin story into the issue about halfway through.
