Superman Homepage – Super Sons #6

Felicia Day Returns to Dark Horse with The Guild Library Edition

The long-awaited The Guild Library Edition Volume 1 HC is coming! From Dark Horse Comics and the famed YouTube comedy web series The Guild, this deluxe oversized hardcover includes every Guild comic, including two new stories by Felicia Day—the first to be published since 2013!

Felicia Day, who most recently teamed up with Netflix for the revival of Mystery Science Theater 3000, brings her original webisodic sensation to comics with help from The Guild cast and crew (including producer Kim Evey and director Sean Becker).

The Guild first came to comics in 2010, with stories set before the web series began, following lonely violinist Cyd Sherman trying to navigate a frustrating personal life as she stumbles on an online MMO called The Game. As Cyd gathers friends in-game, she gains confidence to confront all the problems in her real life. With, ahem, varied results.

The Guild Library Edition Volume 1 features thirty-four pages of brand-new comics—drawn by Mike Norton, Francesco Francavilla, and Naomi Franquiz—as well as the exciting one-shot written by Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton spotlighting his character Fawkes, and the short Free Comic Book Day story by Felicia Day and Jonathan Case. Also featuring art by Becky Cloonan, Darick Robertson, Adam Warren, Tim Seeley, Jonathan Case, and more!

Dark Horse Announces the Biggest Free Comic Book Day Ever!

Official Press Release

DARK HORSE ANNOUNCES THE BIGGEST

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY EVER! 

FOUR GREAT STORIES, TWO AMAZING BOOKS,

ONE HECK OF A SATURDAY!

NOVEMBER 23, MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse rolls out the announcement of all four titles that will be featured in two different comics to be given away to thousands of fans on May 5, 2012.

First comes a special flip book featuring both Felicia Day’s gaming web series turned comic, The Guild, and Dark Horse’s best-selling comics continuation of Joss Whedon’s iconic television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Buffy has never needed a vacation as badly as she does now, with the world overrun with zompires and other fallout from Season 8. After an old friend suggests a relaxing getaway from all things that go bump in the night, it turns out to be harder than she could ever expect for a Slayer to get a day off!

Felicia Day, creator of The Guild, continues to bring on the funny with high jinks from her diverse group of gamers when the Guildies struggle to find a meeting place they can all agree on. A little in-game battle becomes the deciding factor, and the circle follows the decree of the winner: the beach?!

Next up is one of the biggest flip books we’ve ever published, when Zack Whedon brings you tales of the coolest guy in the galaxy and the most charming rebel in the ’verse! That’s right; we’ve paired Star Wars with Joss Whedon’s Serenity! 

Han Solo and Chewbacca have a falling-out after a deal with their slickest—and shadiest—customer goes bad. But when the client gets designs on the Millennium Falcon, Han and Chewie present a united front that can’t be beat!

Meanwhile, Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds is no stranger to jobs gone wrong himself. But when the chips are down, he’s able to rely on the amazing, odd, and diversely talented crew of Serenity.
