Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of the first six issues of MySpace Presents Dark Horse include Joss Whedon's complete rock 'n' roll saga Sugarshock, a fun-filled story about a quirky girl named Dandelion and her love of music (and hatred of Vikings); Mike Mignola's haunting holiday tale, lushly illustrated by Guy Davis, "The Christmas Spirit"; a lost Umbrella Academy chapter written by Gerard Way about our favorite curmudgeon, The Kraken; and a four-part story dedicated to Eric Powell's The Goon. This volume also includes a wide range of established comics talent, and stories from newcomers who saw their professional debut in MySpace Presents Dark Horse.

Review:

"Anthology compilations are usually a crapshoot at best, so it's a delight to discover a collection as rich, colorful and diverse as this. Rock stars, mythic beasts, superheroes, American history, horror and sci-fi explode across the pages, offering something for everybody without a dud in the lot. Summarizing the amount and kind of fun to be had is difficult, but highlights include the charming adventures of oddball rockers 'Sugarshock' in an intergalactic battle of the bands penned by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and gorgeously drawn by Fabio Moon; Peter Bagge's (Hate) hilarious 'Founding Fathers Funnies'; the POV narrative of Adam Warren's neurotic female superhero, 'Empowered'; Steve Niles and Brian Churilla's werewolf/vampire superhero duo, 'Scratch and Suck'; a creepy Christmas yarn from Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and his B.P.R.D. creative compatriots; and Eric Powell's the Goon handled in 'cartoony' fashion by five different illustrators. A veritable buffet of exactly what makes comics good, this is a solid winner." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
