Dark Horse presents a new anthology showcasing what they do best, with a healthy and diverse mix of action-adventure strips by some of the biggest and the best in mainstream and alternative comics creators. In a landmark Buffy story, Scott Lobdell and Jeff Matsuda reveal the first meeting between Angel and Dawn, set before Buffy ever came to Sunnydale, before she and Angel ever met. The X-Men and WILDCATS team of Joe Casey and Sean Phillips presents autobiographics from the mainstream, with a short piece about a comics writer. Peter David and Alex Maleev give us a glimpse into Spyboy’s darker adventures, and Francisco Ruiz Velasco provides a short story spin off from Lone Wolf and Cub 2100, which is featured on the cover by X-Men and Highroads artist Leinil Francis Yu. Also featured are new strips by Dave Land (Star Wars: Infinities) and Craig Thompson (Goodbye, Chunky Rice), and Scott Allie (Star Wars: Empire) and Paul Lee and Brian Horton (Creatures of Habit novel).Hellboy editor Scott Allie interviews Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro (Blade II) and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola during the early days of production on their Hellboy film. We are also proud to present a special Dark Horse Fine Arts section, with shorts by R. Sikoryak (Drawn & Quarterly) and the Fillbach Brothers (Poison Elves), and, we kid you not, a two-page comic strip by the most important artist of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (Guernica).
