    This contest is now over! Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winner.

    Dark Horse Comics has always been a very reliable name in the comic world for great creator-owned comics and some of the best licensed properties around. Whether it is their continuation of Joss Whedon properties, their adaptations of Conan the Barbarian stories, their history with comic book staples with “Sin City” or their long running relationship with Mike Mignola that has birthed an entire creator-owned universe as rich as anything the competition does, Dark Horse is a staple in the comics industry that has always been at the forefront of good independent comics. (And that’s just to name a few of their offerings!)

    In time with our birthday/relaunch, Dark Horse Comics has given us a box full of mystery comics for one lucky fan. We won’t tell you what is in the box because that would spoil the surprise, but rest assured: it is a damn good box full of great comics.

    Entry, as with all of our contests, is simple: leave a comment for us sharing what your current favorite Dark Horse title is along with your email address, and we’ll select one lucky person to get the box. Make sure to get your entry in by Wednesday at Noon EST, as that’s when we’ll be drawing our winner.

      I’m reading Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi, slow start, but it gets better every issue.

    • Hellboy in Hell is my most anticipated comic of all time. Hellboy was the first comic I ever read, and to think about Mignola back on art is enough to drive everything else out my head.

    • Dawn of the Jedi all the way. It’s the Star Wars story I didn’t know I would want to read. thereisnosteve@gmail.com

    • K3vbomb

      Ragemoor or Conan. hmmm. k3vbomb@gmail.com

      I pick up various Buffy and Star Wars related comics, but, as much as I hate to parrot everyone else, Dawn of the Jedi is my favorite. It’s just that damn good. Big props to Dark Horse, they’ve been making great Star wars comics since I was a kid, way before the prequels. After Episode 1 I swore being a mindless fanboy who bought whatever Luca$ shat out, but Dark Horse’s Star Wars comics have been too good to resist. I consider their stuff more canonical than anything Lucasfilm does.

      Dark Horse also put out the best book I read all last year-Green River Killer.

    • Zach Guerrette

      You mean I have to choose one?! BPRD is firing on all cylinders right now so I’ll go with that. Also the Goon and, not sure if it counts since it’s not really ongoing and is a reprint, BLACKSAD! zguerrette@gmail.com

    • Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 is my favorite Dark Horse book right now.

      BPRD all the way. Each mini always advance the whole plot in meaningful ways for the world and its characters. Mike Mignola has created a gem of a series which gets better and better. hug80@hotmail.com

    • Chuck

      My favorite Dark Horse comic is The Strain. Guillermo del Toro’s story is building nicely.

      The ninth season of Buffy. I like the simultaneous return to the “norm” and exploration of some really new and interesting issues and ideas.

      Beasts of Burden!

      glorenzow@gmail.com

    • I am a massive fan of Dark Horse Presents. Every issue has something surprising in it. Issue 10’s UXB was really dark and funny. Totally love this book to death. The most recent Goon issue parodying DC was a blast as well.

    • Vince Spallino

      Well my favorite Dark Horse title of all time is Fray – one of my favorite books ever. As for current ongoings: although I love both Buffy and Angel & Faith, I’m most looking forward to the second issue of Reset. The first was totally original and I have high hopes for where it’ll go from here.

    • My favorite has always been Dark Horse Presents.

      jeffmetzner@hotmail.com

    • jeff h

      By far it has to be the monthly anthology Dark Horse Presents. This book has introduced me to Concrete, the wickedly wonderful skeleton key, and has been a shot in the arm to the science fiction serial in comics to name a few. It also has turned out to be a valuable preview for readers to be introduced to new mini series like resident alien and alabaster:wolves. So kudos to DHP for providing a high quality book every month for the money. E-mail jldprod2002@gmail.com

    • kyle shipcott

      Conan the Barbarian. I love Becky Cloonan’s art. I have never read anything about Conan and I love this. Second would probably be Alabaster Wolves even though one issue has been released. It has a really engaging story and art.

      Conan by Wood and Cloonan

      You can’t spell Cloonan without Conan!

      My favorite dark horse title is DH Presents every month

    • Nathanial Perkins

      Oh boy, favorite Dark Horse comic, that’s a tough one. I really enjoyed the Baltimore: Curse Bells mini, I actually enjoy Wood/Cloonan’s Conan a lot (and I’m not even a Conan fan), Dark Horse Presents has been (mostly) phenomenal, and I’m really looking forward to reading more of the Massive and Resident Alien, but I think I’m going to have to go with Usagi Yojimbo, which has been a favorite since I was a kid. Although, the second they start publishing Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy, my answer will change!

      My current favorite is Beasts Of Burden. Dark and cute and funny in equally amounts. Plus the art is amazing.

      The Goon or B.P.R.D.
      So hard to choose! I think the B.P.R.D. minis take the cake though… Hard to deny Abe Sapien!

      number1.thelarch@gmail.com

    • Aaron Brame

      Currently The Goon which will easily be over taken when The Umbrella Academy returns.

    • Soils

      Hellboy by far.

    • I’ve been reading Usagi Yojimbo since I first started reading comics in the early 2000’s and I love it dearly. Sakai’s series is actually a big part of why I’m so obsessed with comics, now. Collecting the Mirage TMNT comics led to Usagi and eventually superheroes and everything else.

      I’ve also loved Goon since it’s Albatross Exploding Funny Books days, but I’m going to have to go with Usagi on this one.

      Hellboy by far. Oops forgot the email: Soils@me.com

    • ekko

      The BPRD Hell On Earth books have been great–can’t wait for the next one.

    • Buffy Season 9

    • Never thought I’d be saying this, but it’s Wood and Cloonan’s Conan The Barbarian!

      crkiser@gmail.com

    • While I’m a huge Hellboy/B.P.R.D. fan, I’ve got to tip my cap to the current run of Conan. Becky Cloonan’s art has blown me away and Brian Wood definitely knows how to write characters like Conan and Belit. Add Dave Stewart to the mix and you’ve got comics gold.

      I’m a big fan of B.P.R.D and everything that’s come out of the Mignolaverse. However, my current favorite Dark Horse comic is “Alabaster: Wolves.” Caitlín R. Kiernan and Steve Lieber have masterfully complimented one another to create a world that a world so full of foreboding that you’re terrified even when nothing is happening. The blackbird’s ridiculous and never ending country homilies provide a welcome and entertaining ebb to the tension. It’s an all-around great horror comic.
