Dark Horse Presents #122

Comic book, 1997

Man, so Dark Horse Presents was hitting it pretty hard around this time. Regular work from Paul Pope and Renee French, plus DH proper putting out all the Legend stuff. A great, substantial place for short, one-off stores. (A valuable thing that no medium seems to be able to sustain.) This issue alone has John Arcudi and Troy Nixey. And the stories in here are good, something branded as Lords of Misrule although nothing about it suggests that it’s a continuing serial. A western drawn by someone named Jack Zero who looks halfway between Troy Nixey and Peter Chung. Then you’ve got Troy Nixey himself, a wonderful and strongly distinct voice in comics for a time who just dropped off the map. Is he working on something, or did I hear that he left comics for movies? Man, movies suck.
