Dark Horse Presents goes digital, adds Andi Watson
Dark Horse’s anthology series Dark Horse Presents has been through a number of incarnations at this point: First as a print comic that ran from 1986 to 2000 and premiered some of the most outstanding work around; then as a digital comic at MySpace (yes, it’s still there) that ran online for free and was collected into trade paperbacks. The latest version is an 80-page print anthology, and Dark Horse just announced that it will be available in digital form as well, with each issue appearing on Dark Horse Digital a month after the print release. Unlike the MySpace version, it is not free but will cost $3.99 per issue, a considerable markdown from the paper-and-ink version, which retails for $7.99.
Dark Horse has also been revealing some of the creators and content at their blog; JK rounded up some of last week’s announcements, including new work from Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson, and on Friday they announced another addition: A new episode of Skeleton Key by Andi Watson, the creator of Glister and the original writer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
