(image) Media Release -- Buffy's first love will receive a solo series and a "re-vamped" creative team in Angel Season 11. Corinna Bechko (Lara Croft, Star Wars: Legacy II) writes Season 11 while Geraldo Borges (Deadpool, Ghost) illustrates the series, and Michelle Madsen (Buffy Season 9, Angel & Faith Season 10) colors the issues. Scott Fischer (Angel & Faith Season 10, Buffy: The High School Years) and Jeff Dekal (Journey into Mystery, Dark Horse Presents) both created covers.
Angel Season 11 finds Angel being tormented by memories of his past. His visions link his dark past to a Big Bad coming in the future. The goddess Illyria intervenes and assists Angel as he discovers that it might be possible to change the future by traveling back in time to change the past.
Angel Season 11 writer Corinna Bechko shared her excitement for joining the Whedonverse: "I'm thrilled that I'll be helping to add to a little corner of the Whedonverse, a rich and exciting place that contains infinite possibilities for exploration. Of course, the fact that I'll be doing so with Angel, one of the most complex and interesting characters, means I have big shoes to fill. But I can't wait to spend some quality time with him during this journey, and to have a bit of fun along the way!"
The first issue of Angel Season 11 goes on sale January 18, 2017, the day before Buffy's birthday! Angel Season 11 will have twelve issues total.

(image) Media Release -- Jeff Lemire's superhero comic series is getting the super treatment: Dark Horse is proud to announce that Black Hammer will have an oversized anthology issue in early 2017.
Black Hammer Giant-Sized Annual features an all-star slate of guest artists illustrating five stories by Jeff Lemire. Dustin Nguyen (The Authority, Batman: Streets of Gotham), Emi Lenox (Plutona, EmiTown), Nate Powell (March, Any Empire), Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT, Dept. H), Ray Fawkes (One Soul, The People Inside), and Dave Stewart (Fight Club 2, Black Hammer) bring Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Barbalien, and Madame Dragonfly to life.
The forty-page Black Hammer Giant-Sized Annual will be available on January 18, 2017.
Black Hammer is currently available as an ongoing comic series from Dark Horse. The popular series is from the prodigious brain of Lemire (Descender, Sweet Tooth, Essex County, A.D.: After Death, Plutona) and brought to life by Ormston (Lucifer, The Sandman), with colors by none other than Eisner Award–winning veteran Dave Stewart.
Praise for Black Hammer:
"At once an epic, gripping superhero mystery, and a heartfelt meditation on why superheroes matter, Black Hammer is easily one of Lemire's best creations."—Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman)
"Lemire, Ormston and Stewart's work on Abraham Slam is worth buying, reading and adoring this series alone. With a top-billing group like that, this story, art, colors and tone do not disappoint."—Court of Nerds
"Lemire's Black Hammer feels like it's walking two roads—one honoring the past of superhero comics, and one forging a path into the future of the genre."—Cullen Bunn (Harrow County)
"Black Hammer is the maddest, most brilliant comic I've read in years."—Mark Millar (Kick-Ass)

(image) Media Release -- Now that 3 states have legalized it for recreational use, 19 for medical use, and with legalization on the November ballot in 5, it is especially fun to relive the hysteria surrounding marijuana as a perceived gateway drug from the 1930's to the 1950's and beyond. And now you can do so in the comfort of your home with Reefer Madness from Dark Horse Books.
Like the anti-drug propaganda films of that era, these stories range from comically misinformed to soberly concerned about the influence of Mary Jane on the youth of America. With titles like Teenage Dope Slaves, Satan's Cigarettes, and Hopped-Up Killer, the gulf in attitudes between today and the days of Reefer Madness could not be wider.
Includes a long introduction summarizing the anti pot campaigns of the first drug czar, Harry Anslinger, and newspaperman William Randolph Hearst, with lurid covers from many of the comics and magazines of the day. The comics collected in Reefer Madness come from comic book legends like Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (Adventure Comics), Frank Frazetta, Jerry Robinson, and Jack Kirby. Eisner and Harvey Award winner Craig Yoe brings a new collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics to the mix.

(image) Media Release -- The master of horror returns to Dark Horse! For nearly fifty years, Richard Corben (Rat God, Ragemoor, Creepy, Eerie) has been terrifying readers with his unique visions of the macabre and the horrific. On December 14, 2016, the Eisner Hall of Famer launches his newest nightmarishly beautiful series: Shadows on the Grave.
Shadows on the Grave is an eight-issue mini anthology of bizarre horror stories told in Corben's signature black-and-white style. Each issue of Shadows on the Grave features four tales of horror, including the ongoing saga of Denaeus, a Greco-Roman-era version of Corben's Den from Heavy Metal.
Pre-order your copy of Shadows on the Grave #1 today!
Praise for Corben's past works:
"He is the mainstay in my collection of original art and one of the most precise and admirable storytellers in the medium."—Guillermo del Toro
"Corben has been an artist's artist for longer than some of us have been alive, and Rat God #1 illustrates that he is still working at the peak of his weird powers, delivering a true-to-form Lovecraftian set-up, wrapped in gorgeous, rock album ready artwork."—Newsarama
"There's also something about Corben's distinctive artwork that's inherently unnerving, from the grotesquely exaggerated facial features to his tense, claustrophobic panels and layouts."—Big Comic Page
