MILWAUKIE, OR, OCTOBER 5—Last year’s New York Comic Con saw the announcement of Dark Horse’s digital store. This year, we’re celebrating that anniversary in style with special-edition comics, in-booth events, and giveaways, as well as prizes for attendees of New York’s premier convention.
First of all, leading into the convention, Dark Horse will release a special three-part digital preview comic, showcasing eight pages of each of our new fall titles! Check out Tom Morello’s Orchid, P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast’s House of Night, and of course, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain! This special preview comic will be available at Digital.DarkHorse.com on October 12.
That same day, Dark Horse will also release a special sixteen-page Mass Effect digital comic, featuring the previously released “Incursion” story from MySpace Dark Horse Presents as well as the “Inquisition” story originally featured on USAToday.com for 99 cents. Visit Digital.DarkHorse.com TODAY for an exclusive eight-page preview of the highly anticipated Mass Effect: Invasion series!

Stay tuned for more news on Dark Horse’s New York Comic Con announcements and events daily!
Your weekly comic update is coming to you a day late due to the holidays. Not only does Comixology not ship out their books until tomorrow, but my own schedule is a little crazy this week in terms of catching up from vacation so, unfortunately, you’re getting this late. Additionally, this was a light week for me, so this post will probably be a bit shorter than usual. I know, I’m full of let-downs today. I promise more excitement next week!
First off, however, comic book news! It was announced earlier this week that Mark Millar & Dave Gibbons (a personal idol of mine) will be teaming up for a new series in 2011. Millar wouldn’t share any information about the new title, however, saying that it would all be revealed at his recently announced UK Comic Con, Kapow!, in April 2011.
Another exciting little news bit was the release of the second My Chemical Romance video featuring Grant Morrison as a comic book-esque villain named Korse. I am not a huge MCR fan but I am a big fan of Grant Morrison’s work so these videos have been fun for me. Regardless of whether or not I like the music, I generally like endeavors that attempt to do something different with the music video format.
Finally, Dark Horse released images of the Ryan Sook cover for BPRD: Hell on Earth: Gods #1, which included teasers of a new member for the team. The issue is due to come out in January 2011, but CBR is set to have an interview with writer John Arcudi which will hopefully shed some light on this new character.
Now for the weekly releases!
