Solicitationary blatherings: Dark Horse, October 2007

Huh, not much of interest from Dark Horse in October:

The Badlander #1 (of 4) - This seems like it might be interesting, even if creator Kevin Ferrara is a unknown. Something about a reanimated zombie sheriff in the Old West, it seems. Might be fun. Of course, as per my current policy, I'll wait until it's collected to buy it, if at all.

Batman/Grendel TPB - I've always heard these stories are good, but I've never read them (or any other Grendel books, for that matter). This might be worth checking out. We'll see.

Living with the Dead #1 (of 3) - Another zombie book. Yawn. I suppose it might be all right, but I'm really only interested in pointing out the cool Richard Corben cover.

MPD Psycho volume 3 - RRRGH! I still don't have the first volume! I gotta find that thing, dammit!

The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite #2 (of 6) - I suppose this should fall under my "wait for the trade" policy, but I've already preordered the first issue, so I suppose I should just get them all. I'm sure it will be worth it, considering how much I liked the Free Comic Book Day offering. Oh, and does this seem like a repurposed Fables cover to anyone else?

And that's pretty much it. I suppose I could have mentioned Lobster Johnson, but if I do get that one, it will probably be after it's collected, and I'll probably try to get caught up on Hellboy trades first.

I might have more content tonight, but I think I'll be busy. Tomorrow, then!


  1. Hey there-

    We're holding a contest at to get a free subscription to The Umbrella Academy when you pre-order the first issue. Just thought you'd like to know.


  2. Well, I already ordered it from my local comics shop, but I encourage anybody else who is interested to check the offer out.
