Dark Horse Comics - New Release Reviews For November 14, 2012
The world of physical, paper-based comic book distribution seems to be slowly waning as more and more publishers are moving to digital. DC Entertainment is aggressively pursuing this by simultaneously releasing all its new releases through iTunes, NOOK Store, and the Kindle Store.
Keeping up with the other publishers is Dark Horse Comics which released an app for Android devices that makes all of their library available for sale. The free app launched on November 7th. New Release Reviews is looking at seven new releases available on paper and digital. Titles are scored on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the very best possible. We take the time to read these books so your time isn't wasted.
Conan - Issue 10
This issue starts in a simple manner, that ends up mirroring the threat the crew faces. No matter how simplistic the tale, the emotion conveyed by the characters is phenomenal. Passion explodes from the pages as everyone is fully present. The cover is awesome. And some how the interior artwork is even better.
Score: 9 out of 10
The Creep - Issue 3
For a detective story, the mystery seems to be the least important aspect of this story. Most of the focus is on the lead trying to fix a problem he didn't create, even if he blames himself. Most of the characters are either very flat or very rude. The cover is outstanding and the interior is fine.
Score: 6.5 out of 10
Ex Sanguine - Issue 2
The smashing together of sex and violence dominates this series as monsters seem to be developing a romance of sorts. Not solely focus on the bad guys, some time is given to the law-enforcement investigating them. For as inept as the police seem, the bad guys should get away with things. The cover is strange and the interior is alright.
