Dark Horse round-up for Sept 19, 2012

September 11th, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

Alright people, I have some highlights of what Dark Horse is dropping on 9/19. Go support your local comic shop and go get some.



General Gentis’s plan to take over the fledgling Empire and depose the Emperor and Darth Vader is nearly complete. All that remains is to lure Grand Moff Tarkin to Coruscant and capture him.

But Gentis has not reckoned with the power of the dark side—or with the secrets of the Ghost Prison. War has come to Coruscant, and even thousands of loyal cadets and troopers are no match for what Vader has unleashed!

* Vader on a rampage!


Former journalist Vaughn Barnes has been reduced to moonlighting as cameraman for the shoddy paranormal-investigation cable TV show Phantom Finders. But when a curious device summons the specter of a beautiful, translucent woman, Vaughn is plunged into a mystery of criminal intrigue that spans two worlds! Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Noto launch their exciting new take on one of Dark Horse’s most popular characters ever!

* Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel) brings a keen new eye to the spectral heroine.

* Renowned artist Phil Noto (Angel & Faith, X-23) perfectly captures the wraithlike elegance of the enigma known as Ghost!

Ghost is back!


True-crime writer Phil Stanford tells a gritty tale from Portland’s underbelly as he kicks off City of Roses with artist Patric Reynolds—a new era for the Crime Does Not Pay name!

Plus, Richard Corben adapts a spine-tingling story by Edgar Allan Poe!

* A creator-owned comics celebration!

* 80 pages! No ads!

* The return of Crime Does Not Pay.

* Dive into The Deep Sea—a new creator-owned series from Palmiotti and Gray!


Spike, traveling with a crew of cockroach-like aliens and stranded demons, is headed back from the dark side of the moon to . . . Sunnydale. If you’re a vampire on a walkabout who wants to gain some perspective and get over a girl (psst . . . it’s Buffy), it might not be the best idea to return to the nostalgia-filled hometown you helped her destroy. But if you don’t have a choice, maybe the best hope is to find another way to put out the old flame . . .

* Spike heads back to Sunnydale!


Love and Rockets co-creator Gilbert Hernandez brings his freakiest tale to date to a conclusion only he could dream up! Trapped in the future, Fatima and her fellow zombie hunters discover a civilization even more ravaged than they could have imagined, as they face giant mutants and the possibility that they are the last remaining humans! Can they save the world, and can love bloom amongst the ruins?

* The weird, sexy conclusion!

* From Love and Rockets co-creator Gilbert Hernandez!
