Dark Horse’s Exclusive Emerald City Comicon Variants!

Convention season has begun and up next is Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon, Dark Horse has announced not one, not two, not even three, but four variant covers for this year’s show!

The first few months of 2014 will see some of Dark Horse’s biggest launches of the year, and we have chosen to celebrate with Emerald City variants for Serenity #1, Buffy #1, Veil #1, and a very special variant of Witcher #1.

First up is Veil, the much-talked-about new, original series by Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula. For this year’s show, Dark Horse has tapped J. H. Williams III to create the variant cover. Limited to 500 copies, Veil #1 is sure to go quickly, especially with writer Greg Rucka in attendance!

Next, we have the hotly anticipated Season 10 premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with a variant coverby Season 9cover artist Phil Noto, limited to 1,000 copies. Look for interior artist Rebekah Isaacs at this year’s show!

Another one for Joss Whedon fans: Dark Horse brings Jenny Frison on for a special cover of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1, featuring none other than the lovely Inara! A few lucky fans may even get actress Morena Baccarin herself to sign their copies!

Last, and certainly not least, legendary artist Stan Sakai has done a special cover of the upcoming tie-in series The Witcher,a canonical entry in the world of the Witcher video games, which have collectively won over 250 awards and sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide! All proceeds from the sale of this limited edition variant will benefit Stan and Sharon Sakai. Stan will be attending the show, in celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of his landmark series, Usagi Yojimbo!

Each variant-cover issue will cost five dollars and will be limited to ten copies per person, per day! A set quantity will be available at the show opening each day.

Emerald City Comicon is this weekend in Seattle, WA, on March 28–30!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

AMERICAN VAMPIRE SECOND CYCLE #1Each week comic fans face the tough choice as to what comics to get. Our job is to help you sort through the pile and narrow down some of the releases you should consider adding to this week’s buy pile. Check out below our top comic picks for the week!

Top Pick: American Vampire: Second Cycle #1 (Vertigo) – Scott Snyder’s modern vampire tale is back for a brand new volume! It’s been quite a while since we got to read up on Snyder’s spin on the vampire mythos, but we’re more than psyched to sink our fangs into the latest volume.

All-New Ghost Rider #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s latest take on the Spirit of Vengeance begins here with a new Ghost Rider and a new ride. From what we’ve seen we’re a bit skeptical, but intrigued at the same time. As long time Ghost Rider fans, it’s hard to not check this out.

Buffy: The Vampire Slayer Season 10 #1 (Dark Horse) – It’s Buffy, c’mon, do you need another reason? Dark Horse has been on a streak with Whedon properties, and they’ve done Buffy proud in the past. Check out their latest take for what should be a good starting point for all.

Clockwork Angels #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Rush + comics = awesome. BOOM! is translating the iconic band’s concept album into comic form for what should be a rocking experience.

Daredevil #1 (Marvel) – Mark Waid’s Daredevil has been one of Marvel’s longest running consistent comics. The latest volume sees him move to the West coast to pick up his life after being disbarred and his identity revealed.

Letter 44 #5 (Oni Press) – Charles Soule is comic’s hardest working writer. This series mixes politics, sci-fi, aliens and mystery. If you haven’t hopped on this now, it’s not too late, cause I guarantee everyone will be talking about it down the road.

Ms. Marvel #2 (Marvel) – Marvel’s best launch this year, the comic sees a whole new Ms. Marvel that’s believable, easy to relate to, and just amazing. Expect another sell out.

Sovereign #1 (Image Comics) – A new fantasy series from Chris Roberson that tells the story of masked undertakers facing the undead with swords, of civil wars and cultures in collision, of ancient threats emerging from the ashes of history to menace the future.

Superior Foes of Spider-Man #10 (Marvel) – Could this be better than the main Spider-Man series? This comic focuses on Spider-Man’s C-list villains and mixes action, humor, and somehow heart.

Transformers: Regeneration One #100 (IDW Publishing) – It’s a hundredth issue that should wrap up the major storylines. For folks who have fond memories of the 80s Marvel comics.

Top Graphic Novel/Trade Paperback: Edison Rex Vol. 2 (Monkeybrain/IDW Publishing) – A collection of the fantastic digital series comes to print. The comic is a humorous take on a villain who actually defeats the hero…. and what comes next.

NYCC 2013: Whedon’s Buffy and Angel & Faith Return for Tenth Season!

Announced at New York Comic Con, Dark Horse is bringing the Whedonverse into it’s tenth season with the help of fan favorite authors, Christos Gage and Victor Gischler.

Editor in Chief Scott Allie gave some details as to what to expect:

In Buffy, Season 10 is going to be about bringing friendships back together, while in Angel & Faith, relationships are shattered. Magic is starting to come back into the world, but in some surprising ways, like that vampire we saw standing in the sunlight at the end of Season 9.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 is slated for 30 issues, written by Christos Gage and illustrated by Rebekah Issacs, with covers by long time series artist, Steve Morris.

Christos Gage commented:

The Buffyverse community has been wonderfully welcoming to Rebekah and me. It’s a tremendous honor for Joss and Dark Horse to trust us with their flagship book, and we are going to do all we can to be worthy of that trust. It’s a new season, with new rules…but hopefully the same blend of love, action, horror, humor and creativity that’s made Buffy and her Scoobies part of all our families. We hope you’ll join us for the ride.

Angel & Faith is also slated for a 30 issue run, written by Victor Gischler and illustrated by Will Conrad, with covers by Scott Fischer.

Gischler commented:

I was proud and privileged to have a small part in season nine, and I can’t express how grateful I am to have an expanded role in season ten.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains an iconic television show, and the Dark Horse comics continue that great tradition.  I plan on having a lot of fun.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #1 hits stands March 19th and Angel & Faith Season 10 #1 is on sale April 2nd in comic shops everywhere!
