C2E2: Dark Horse to Take It Easy, Reboot Dark Horse Presents With 1/3 Less Pages

They're not saying publishing an Eisner Award winning anthology isn't important - it's just not "80 page" important.

Dark Horse Comics confirmed rumors that they would be rebooting the Eisner Award winning Dark Horse Presents anthology later this year, said a super sexy, big-dicked EXCLUSIVE CBR report from C2E2 today. The new volume will be 58 pages instead of 80, and come with a $4.99 price tag. Dark Horse Publisher Mike Richardson commented that the move was designed "to make it a little easier on themselves" after spending three and a half years "producing 80 pages a month – that's about 10 different features." Richardson then kicked his feet up on the table at the Dark Horse panel, pulled a sombrero down over his eyes, and immediately fell asleep.

After being roused for a bothersome Q&A session, Richardson told reporters that the current volume would end with next month's Dark Horse Presents #36, and then the company would take a two month break to "like, just chill out, man, maybe check some stuff out on the tube." When the book returns, it will continue to feature eclectic genres from talented creators, including some big names, such as David Mack's Kabuki and the return of Big Guy & Rusty The Boy Robot from Geof Darrow and Frank Miller. Darrow explained that Miller would be adding the dialog to the story (whoreswhoreswhoreswhores).

Richardson next informed the crowd that they could take a look at some of the stories planned for the return, "you know, if you feel like it," and halfheartedly gestured at a slideshow listing the following projects:

  • David Mack’s "Kabuki"
  • New "Resident Alien" stories by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse
  • Brendan McCarthy’s "Dream Gang"
  • Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Andy Kuhn’s "Wrestling With Demons"
  • More "Sabertooth Swordsman" by Damon Gentry and Aaron Conley
  • Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey’s "Action Philosophers"
  • Ricardo Delgado’s "Age of Reptiles"
  • Horton and Dialynis’s "Amala’s Blade"
  • Tyler Jenkins' (Peter Panzerfaust) "The Chaining"
  • Jerry Ordway and Alex DeCampi’s "Semiautomagic"
  • Peter Tomasi and Keith Champagne’s "The Mighty" drawn by Leonard Kirk
  • Ed Brisson’s "Murder Book" with Declan Shalvey, Michael Walsh, and more
  • Shannon Wheeler’s "Too Much Coffee Man"

Then the yawning publisher politely hinted that he would prefer if everyone could keep it down so he could take a nap.
