THIS IS ONE OF MTV'S MOST ANTICIPATED COMIC BOOKS OF THE FALL! CHECK OUT THE REST HERE.

...AND BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR MOST ANTICIPATED GRAPHIC NOVELS OF THE FALL HERE!

Brain Boy is a fairly obscure character who originally starred in a short-lived 1960s Dell comic, then lay dormant until Dark Horse revived him earlier this year as part of their superhero line (which also includes Ghost, X, and Catalyst Comics). This week, after a three-issue tryout in the pages of Dark Horse Presents, he will end a 49 year and 11 month drought between headlining engagements when Brain Boy #1 hits comic shop shelves.

We here at MTV Geek are really excited about this series, so we've teamed with our friends at Dark Horse to bring you an exclusive interview with writer Fred Van Lente (and an eight-page preview of the forthcoming #0 issue)! Read More...

Next month, Geof Darrow's cult-favorite creation returns to comic shops after an absence of six and a half years.  Yes, thanks to Dark Horse Comics, Shaolin Cowboy #1 hits shelves on Wednesday, October 9th, and promises to leave a trail of hyper-adrenalized action, wanton destruction, and shell-shocked readers in its wake.  As part of our Fall Comic Previews series, we spoke to Darrow about his work on Shaolin Cowboy, and what went on during the long gap between issues... And our friends at Dark Horse have sent along an EXCLUSIVE first look at some interior pages! Read More...

Last week, Dark Horse Comics released the hardcover collected edition of Sam Humphries and Dalton Rose's 'Sacrifice', the six issue series that received rave reviews when it premiered in late 2011, and became a grassroots sensation by bypassing the traditional comic book distribution channels: not just self-publishing each issue, but releasing them to the public through a select network of independent retailers.  We recently spoke to Humphries about 'Sacrifice', his inspirations for the story, his pioneering method of distribution, and how the series found a new home at Dark Horse – and our friends at Dark Horse sent along a five-page preview of the book and some exclusive behind-the-scenes concept art to share with our MTV Geek readers!

The past week saw two high-profile creators make their departures from books at the two major publishers. One was a writer, the other an artist; one was at Marvel, the other at DC. And they could not have been handled more differently.
