Here’s some interesting highlights from Dark Horse and IDW from their November solicitations.  There are some good on-going stories as well as a reasonable number of new mini-series to get you through the summer months.  All the Dark Horse listing here   All the IDW releases for November can be found here

Clown Fatale #1 (of 4) – (DARK HORSE) – This is pretty whacked  but in a good way.  So the girls of this circus get mistaken for being contracted killers and, as you would, they decide that gig sounds better than dancing around with midgets and dodging elephant crap and promptly enter a new world of violence and eh whatever else is being cooked up.  The positive is that they keep their clown make-up on.

 

Game of Thrones Figures – The first two characters in this releases of figures is Jon Snow and Daenerys.  These won’t be articulated but come packaged in a window display which I’m hoping they’ll do  nice job on.  The likenesses for these aren’t too bad at all for non  premium figures but will look fairly sharp next to your collection of novels.

 

NEVER ENDING #1 (of 3) – (DARK HORSE) This may just be the freshest super hero story to come round as of late.  So our hero, Charles Baxter, has been trapped in his super hero body for so long, he’s sick of it and wants out.  Of course, the only one who can do him in is his arch nemesis who is too busy putting the hurt on him.  His challenge is to get his attention so he can come up with a way of getting what they both want.

 
 THE MAXX #1  One of the original titles released from Image back in the early 90’s, Sam Keith’s The Maxx is back in a remastered version of this story.  Given how bizarre this was back in the, it will not have aged badly at all presenting as much an experience as a coherent story line.  Sometimes it’s just plain fun to enjoy each panel as it presents itself without worrying about how it fits with the previous or next panel.

 

The Wraith: Welcome to Christmasland #1 (of 5) – This is based on a recent book, NOS4A2, a play on Nosferatu.  This mini-series is an original story and expands on the world set up in the book, a world that is very dark and bleak so should appeal to those of you who love your horror/thriller tales.
