Oh, no, not more Crimson Empire...
With all due respect to Stradley and Richardson, the first two were just awful, and Kenix Kil was a ridiculous character with an even more ridiculous name. The dialog was terrible in those stories, the plot was pointless, and the artwork was horrible. I really don't want to see anymore of this story, which was never needed in the first place, and which caused the far-superior X-Wing ongoing series to be canceled.
The snarky side of me is thinking that they need to do another Crimson Empire arc so that there is enough material to put out an Omnibus. That's essentially the reason why they did that 3-issue X-wing arc a few years ago.
I'd take a few more arcs of X-wing, even mediocre X-wing, over more Crimson Empire any day. Don't we have enough Jedi-ish armoured characters running around the galaxy as it is already?
I respect Mike Richardson enormously
What he did was really unprecendented with Dark Horse and he's a class act all the way.
I had never heard that he was a commercial artist. Huh !
Dr. Giggles......forgot all about that one. At least it opened the door for Timecop and The Mask, though Timecop never really held ground.
Can't say I buy all the stuff they put out but I like quite a bit of it. Dark Horse is the modern day equivalent of Dell Comics from the 50's. Their quality is high and they have more diversity than any other publisher. Dell, like DH, also had tons of licensed properties.
Great to hear that things are looking so strong with the Universal relationship.
Comics Greatest World - the Dark Horse heroes ! I guess I'm the only one that thought that was a really good line up. Timing more than anything is what killed that. Everyone that year, in the thick of the 90's comic boom, was trying to make their own "universe". I still love me some Ghost, X, Out of the Vortex, The Machine, and Barb Wire.
