COVER SHOTS: Dark Horse August Solicitations

Dark Horse is already pimping their August wares – me? I haven’t even adjusted to the fact it’s May yet! Still running with the thoroughbred, here are August's best bets when it comes to to the Horse's cover art:

COVER OF THE MONTH: THE GOON #35 I think Eric Powell’s The Goon is the comic screaming loudest for the multi-media treatment. Just look at that Dave Stewart cover! Of course a “two fisted beer drinker” means it would have to be for mature audiences, but hey what cartoon couldn’t benefit from the addition of a vulgar monkey or two??

CLOSE CONTENDER: STAR WARS: KNIGHT ERRANT—DELUGE #1 (of 5) One Jedi, performing a rescue on a planet full of (and ruled by) Sith! Going a Soviet military style on the debut cover to this mini was a wise choice by Paul Renaud, as it really shows the odds against Kerra’s plight!

More Dark Horse August goodies after the jump!


  1. I'm always in favor of beer and a vulgar monkey. The first time we all get together in your neck of the woods, Dan, we'll have to figure out who wears the monkey suit. Personally, I vote for Craig.

    The Jedi cover is gorgeous. That red shadow really jumps.

  2. You had me at the vulgarity. The monkey suit is just a bonus.

  3. The cover art that you posted is fantastic! I absolutely love it!

  4. Thanks for all the great comments folks - glad you all liked the art as much as I did!

    Plus Random, Anthony and João - we got Craig to agree to wear a monkey suit! *Sigh* why can't more comment sections have these kind of results? ;D

  5. I'm easy, what can I say?

  6. Thanks for that Anthony! Glad you liked it too.

    Monkey Suit is bonus in any man's language Craig!
