From the minds of Eric Powell (The Goon, Buzzard, Chimichanga) and Kyle Hotz (Buzzard, Zombie, The Hood, The Agency) comes the next arc in Billy the Kid’s wild adventures.
The world believes the notorious outlaw Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett, but in reality the Kid is very much alive, the hired gun of Fineas Sproule’s traveling spectacle of biological curiosities—or “freaks,” as Billy calls them. In their latest adventure, Billy and crew head to Loch Ness to rescue their lizard-skinned comrade Callahan from the wrath of Count Dracula.
Praise for the work of Eric Powell and Kyle Hotz:
“At last, a lit-and-history riff to rival The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” —Entertainment Weekly
“If The Goon wasn’t enough evidence, Billy the Kid’s Old-Timey Oddities is Exhibit B in the case that something just ain’t right in Eric Powell’s head.” —The Fourth Rail

Dark Horse’s horror line also has news for you — continuing to get under your skin with the announcement of comics legend Richard Corben’s truly horrifying adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem “The Conqueror Worm.”
In Edgar Allan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm, a betrayed man hunts down his wife and her lover, only to stumble upon a gruesome puppet show based on his life. This series will be rotten to the core.
Corben will also be lending his talents to the Eisner-nominated anthology Dark Horse Presents, penning additional spine-tingling stories by Edgar Allan Poe.
Praise for Richard Corben:
“Atmosphere is key to sell the malevolent atmosphere and is pulled off in style by Corben, who makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time.”—Comic Book Resources
“Richard Corben doing Edgar Allan Poe. If I have to say more than that, I worry about your tastes in comics. You see, Richard Corben is very well known for doing Edgar Allan Poe. He excels at it.”—Comics Bulletin
