COVER SHOTS: The Best From Dark Horse Comics' February 2013 Solicitations

What isn't to love about February? It's a short month and if you're a couple, you get chocolate. If you are single, you get to buy yourself chocolate and not fear anyone else will eat your favourites first. It's win-win. With Hellboy, Star Wars, Buffy and more under their belt, Dark Horse's February 2013 solicitations are win-win too, and better for the waistline, although maybe not for your wallet.

COVER OF THE MONTH: 
WINSTON SMITH - EMILY AND THE STRANGERS #1

Not only is this cover catchy as a solo visual but each time you stare at it you pick up something new. And various magazine clipping type! Nothing says indie style like various magazine clipping type!

Dark Horse says: Emily's ready to rock n'roll, but to attain her dream of making the strangest, coolest tunes ever to grace a radio, she needs to learn to play with others - no easy task with five styles in the mix. There's a chance that the group can make it big if they find a common tune.

CLOSE CONTENDER: Justin Erickson - Criminal Macabre: Final Night - The 30 Days Of Night Crossover #3

With a title as long as that you wouldn't think there would be any room for a horde of vampires, but this just goes to show. By it for your beloved this Valentines Day, and see how long it takes them to realise he isn't surrounded by roses. Love is blind folks!

Other Dark Horse February 2013 highlights; Sam Keith's Aliens work is collected in the Aliens Inhuman Condition HC, Sandman's Neil Gaiman writes The Day The Saucers Came for Dark Horse Presents #21, and Jedi's on the run form the basis of the new mini-series Star Wars: Dark Times - Fire Carrier #1.

  1. Dan, for more images, go to DC Women Kicking Ass. DC tend to preload their images on the site before actually showing them.
    Their Feburary solicits are already up and ready to go...heres a tip. All you have to do is change the URL of January's covers comics [whichever ones you want to look at] from the current issue, say for example issue 29 change it to 30 and there you can see the next cover!
