Dark Horse has plans for a new series called “Itty Bitty Hellboy” coming from “Tiny Titans” creators Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani. The book will still see all the mainstay characters and the first chapter will follow Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. as they track down a ghost named Rasputin. The creators could not be more stoked for the series (see quotes below). I honestly could not be more excited for this. I love all-ages supernatural stories and I love Hellboy.
Look for “Itty Bitty Hellboy” in shops August 28th. READ MORE

Just announced from Dark Horse Comics at C2E2, “Elfquest” is coming back in a big way. The publisher has plans to launch all-new material and re-release existing material in the fall of 2013. The new storyline will be titled “Elfquest: The Final Quest”, and it follows the Wolfriders as they must make a decision between security and habit. If you don’t remember, the original series, created by Wendy and Richard Pini, became a cult classic in the 80s. It is a story about a community of elves who struggle to survive on a primitive planet. “Elfquest” has bounced around publishers since the launch, and the creators seem excited that it has a new home with Dark Horse.

I spent my Saturday and Sunday this weekend at the C2E2 convention in Chicago, checking out the nerds, the merch, the artwork and on my way out I almost missed the best thing there, (For me) battlefield 3. For all the Comic coverage you can handle, head over to the comics section GRAPHIC CONTENT, where Theo lays it all out for you.
They basically brought us into this mini theater room with an extra large flat screen tv and about 20 or so chairs. There is a 15 minute INCREDIBLE demo you get to watch with some scenes from the game. Some of which are in the video above. But that video above does NO justice at all to what I got to see. Please, read on. READ MORE
Day one of the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo was a lot like a tornado. It caught you up and refused to let go until it had its way with you, and it was just as violent as that entails. After meeting with countless fans, writers, artists, and publishers, myself, Johnny_Trouble, and JerryBaker made it out of the convention virtually unscathed. However, day one is ALWAYS the slowest day, and you can only imagine the intensity that will be Day 2. It was a day of meeting friends new and old, sore feet, fantastic interviewees, and audio malfunctions, but all in all a very successful day. Inside you can check out a few select photos from The Con, as well as a brief video. Read on for the skinny!

As I pack my bags for a fun filled (and insanely hectic) weekend of interviews, news gathering, and money spending at C2E2, this drops into my lap and I about dropped my suitcase.

You either love “CROSSED” or you hate “CROSSED”. There really isn’t any middle ground there. Most people hate it for its, ahem, lack of any moral fiber whatsoever. (I mean this in the most literal way possible) But if you’re like me you don’t let that stop you from loving the title. That is why I am happy to share a special (bloody and disgusting) look at the stunning variant covers for Avatar Press’ first issue of the newest arc in the “CROSSED” series with “FAMILY VALUES”. These covers will only be available at the convention this weekend in Chicago, as will the special little giveaway that will come along with it. Read on for all the details.

Fans haven’t seen anything new from the character since the last series ended all the way back in 2007, but that will all change this winter as the publisher promises an entirely new series. Inside you can can get all the details.
