    Overall this 200th issue of Dark Horse Presents was jammed packed. 83 pages over the usual 48 and something there for everyone. Some stories felt a bit rushed, one or two just a little bit hard to follow, but overall still more that you were able to enjoy. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Feb 17, 2015

    This is issue is, finally, rounded off with Masks. Gillian Flynn writes a dark, but satisfying script that quickly wraps itself up. Combined with Dave Gibbons' pencils and Angus McKie's colors, this is hard to ignore and a good way to round off a decent line-up. Read Full Review

    Altogether, Dark Horse Presents #200 offers almost 80 pages of solid goddamn comic bookery, with a cover gallery thrown in for good measure. It is – in equal measure – fun, creepy, bizarre, thrilling, enigmatic, psychedelic, charming and insightful. Or in short, it is as William Trevor once said, "the distillation of an essence" of what makes comic books so damn great. Congratulations, Dark Horse Presents. Here's to 200 more! Read Full Review
