Dark Horse 'Reveal' anthology includes top comics creatores and rare Pablo Picasso work

Official Press Release

In October, Dark Horse Comics is unveiling an all-new anthology collection of short story comics and creator interviews called Reveal.

Reveal represents a new format for Dark Horse and is intended to showcase the publisher's top-quality action-adventure comics . The full-color, 64-page anthology includes an all-new Buffy The Vampire Slayer story from Scott Lobdell and Jeff Matsuda, an autobiographic short from X-Men and Wildcats team Joe Casey and Sean Phillips, Peter David and Alex Maleev's return to SpyBoy, Lone Wolf 2100 by Leinil Francis Yu, and new strips by Craig Thompson (Goodbye, Chunky Rice), and others. Also included in this collection is a rarely-seen, little known comic strip by major 20th-century artist Pablo Picasso. The original of this two-page strip, titled "The Dream and Lie of Franco ," is housed at the Gugenheim Museum in Venice. Italy. Rounding out the anthology is an interview with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and film director Guillermo Del Toro, who are currently collaborating on the feature film adaption of Hellboy.

Dark Horse editor Scott Allie shared his thoughts on this collection of stories:

"I've worked on anthologies since collect, and I think they're a perfect place to show what a publisher is all about. Dark Horse's diversity has made it hard for us to project a clear reputation to the readers. This book is what I think Dark Horse - High quality action-adventure stories, one step away from superheroes, with a focus on unique voices, great writing, dynamic art, with a bit of humor and fine art to boot. My hopes are to publish this book a couple times a year, and use it to present gems like the Picasso strip, which most people I've talked to have never even heard of."

Reveal is set to be published as a 64-page book anthology, featuring comics in full-color, available for $6.95 starting October 2.
