Dark Horse Comics has been a part of history, recently, with their serialized story Tarzan : The Once And Future Tarzan story that ran in Dark Horse Presents. Tarzan recently celebrated his one-hundredth birthday. Commemorating this milestone, Titan Books released yesterday Tarzan The Centennial Celebration

The book, written by Scott Tracy Griffin, explores all aspects and medias presenting the king of the jungle. Dark Horse doesn't have any Tarzan comics this week but they've got plenty of other comic books. 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.

Number 13 - Issue 0

This issue collects several installments originally serialized in Dark Horse Presents. It's was a violent tale that had a great look, and stylish design. There may be some upside to this series.

Score: 7 out of 10

Baltimore: The Play
- One Shot

Baltimore was barely in this issue as the story was more about Haigus. It's kind of a nihilistic romance tale. What's great is that the mythology of the world continues to grow. The interior is fine and the cover is stirring.

Score: 7 out of 10

Star Wars Agent Of The Empire: Hard Targets - Issue 2

Excluding a rather horrific history lesson involving Darth Vader, this sure seemed like it was going to be the least exciting Jahan Cross Star Wars story. And then, pirates showed up making everything alright. Interior art is excellent and the cover is wonderful in a painted movie poster way.

Score: 8.5 out of 10

Dark Horse Presents - Issue 18

This is another issue of the long running anthology and it continues to have mixed results. Edger Allen Poe's Shadow is eerie and beautiful. The Secret Order Of Teddy Bears is a blast. Memories Of The Caspain is a sweet memoir. Resident Alien seems to be setting up some cool new stories.
