    I have always been a proponent of the anthology series, but the nay-sayers continually point out that you could be paying $5.00 for an eight-page story, with the rest being complete duds. What makes Dark Horse Presents work, is we aren't getting three stories " six stories pushes the odds that there is going to be more good than bad in the book, and in this issue I really enjoyed four of the six, and feel the money is well spent for those who want fast reads in an collected episodic form. The biggest drawback for this issue is that two of the stories are conclusions, and one drops us in the middle. I'm okay with this for the most part as it is pretty easy to figure out what is going. In other words, the editors and creators know that their stories are going to be broken up and structure the narrative to work in the short burst form. Read Full Review

    A murder story all the way, Hot Shot hit's all the right points from seeing the death, to the emotion felt from the death, to unraveling the mystery behind it. Hot Shot follows the same formula as any other crime story out there, but takes the initiative to add that unique twist at the end which separates it from the rest out there. Another story you find appealing because of both the drawing and the applications of shading. The shading in particular which brings out that dark tone which you expect when the centered around death and corruption. A solid story in the end that you take for what it is when met with a decisive end. Read Full Review

    How often does it have to be said, that Dark Horse Presents is the best value for money available monthly at your local comic store? At least once more. Next month is the special 200th issue, and it'll be 80 pages of content for $4.99. If you're not already enjoying this great book, it will be the perfect jumping on point. Read Full Review
