DARK HORSE COMICS FIRST LOOKS

FIRST LOOK: THE ESCAPISTS #6

The Escapists #6 will arrive in stores on Dec. 13 from Dark Horse Comics. The issue is written by Brian K. Vaughan, with art by Jason Shawn Alexander, Steve Rolston and Eduarto Barreto and a cover by Rolston.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"Vaughan reveals the fate of the Escapist and the plucky comic-bookers who brought this classic hero back to life! As if betrayal at the hands of his onetime ally and lover Luna Moth wasn't enough, the Escapist reels from an even greater revelation-one that will undo everything he ever believed to be true! Alexander illustrates this watershed moment in the history of the Escapist.

"Meanwhile, Rolston captures equally stunning changes in the lives of the Escapist's writer, artist, and letterer. When tragedy strikes, will the character that brought them together ultimately tear them apart? Find out in this fantastic final issue of the Escapist's first miniseries!"

The Escapists #6 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.

FIRST LOOK: OUTER ORBIT #1

Outer Orbit #1 will arrive in stores on Dec. 13 from Dark Horse Comics. The issue is written by Zach Howard, Sean Murphy, Reed Buccholz, with art by Howard and Murphy.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"In space, no one can hear you scream . . . or belch, or swear, or cry like a little girl when you're about to be taken down by merciless interstellar bounty hunters who want that mysterious idol you swiped from that hot chick who inexplicably gave you the tip of a lifetime (if you know what I mean) when you showed up at the wrong hotel room with the pizza delivery. This assumes that 'you' are ne'er-do-well big-talker Quinn and explains-sort of-how 'you' hooked up (not like that!) with a big badass of a former galactic cop (and current mama's boy) by the name of Krunk, who is not your partner and not your buddy, got it? Oh, and by the way, the hot chick is hotter than ever (in the bad way) and she wants that idol back, and this time she's probably going to give you a different kind of gratuity, like with a laser ax or a plasma grenade or something. Try talking your way out of that one, spacehole!"

Outer Orbit #1 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.

"Cal McDonald, boozer, druggie, private dick who hangs with dead dudes-welcome to Rock Bottom. Your only friend in the human world is dead, your girlfriend just dumped you and moved to another city, and the district attorney has a chip on his shoulder the size of a Chevy Nova with your name on it.

"When that chip turns into a nasty case of police brutality, Cal ends up fighting for his life in the intensive care unit and wakes up days later . . . sober.

"And what's Cal been missing since he went under? Only the most horrifying convergence of sheer monster power ever to emigrate from the old world. Cal McDonald, meet Nosferatu."

Criminal Macabre: Two Red Eyes #1 will be 32 pages and will cost $3.50.

"And at last, Genevieve's motives in her dangerous double-agent role for Julien and the Duke are revealed. But she may have put Julien-and herself-in more danger than she thought! "
