BC Mag #4: Taking The Super Out Of The Heroes


dream-thief-dark-horseBleeding Cool Magazine article by Rich Handley

Dark Horse Comics has emerged as the largest independent American comic book and manga publisher. Since 1986, the company has produced a wide range of ongoing and limited series, both original and franchise-based, including horror, comedy, science fiction and other genres. This May, Dark Horse will unveil three new offerings—one a returning favorite, as well as two original titles—each deconstructing the superhero motif.

X Marks the Spot
Returning to shelves is the popular series X. Published under the company's Comics' Greatest World imprint, the original X showcased an unhinged, burn-scarred vigilante who clashed with law enforcement and the criminal world in the fictional, politically corrupt city of Arcadia. The title character debuted in 1993, in Dark Horse Comics #8-10, written by Jeremy Prosser and illustrated by N. Steven Harris, and then starred in an ongoing series from writer Steven Grant and several artists, including P. Craig Russell, Ron Wagner, Doug Mahnke and Tim Bradstreet.
