In a world where people rely on computers to escape loneliness, the logical conclusion is the persocom—attractive robot companions that are becoming everyone’s boyfriend and girlfriend. Chi is a persocom, but she is also one of the legendary “Chobits,” experimental persocoms built to acquire full awareness and emotion.

As Hideki and his friends search for the abducted Chi, others are watching them—others who know who built Chi, and why . . . and what went terribly wrong. It is already known that the affectionate persocom can in fact be quite dangerous . . . but the real danger is what the soul of this new machine means for the future of the human heart. Because it was never the computers who were weak, it was the people who made them . . . and if Hideki wants to truly save Chi, he needs the courage to truly love her! The conclusion of the best-selling Chobits saga!

• “Chobits is perhaps CLAMP’s most mature work to date, and not just ‘mature’ in the fan service sense. This time, they take love into the twenty-first century, exploring humans’ relationship with technology . . . The series is not only one of the sexiest manga in its genre, it is also one of the most endearing.”—Manga: The Complete Guide

• The Dark Horse series of CLAMP omnibus editions has truly raised the bar for manga collections!

Conan, once a wandering thief, tries his luck as a professional warrior, joining Amalric’s mercenary forces to live as a rank-and-file soldier. However, something much more than luck will lead Conan on a collision course with the strongest, strangest army he’s ever faced! Princess Yasmela—the city of Khoraja’s remaining sovereign—has been haunted by terrifying apparitions of the wizard Natohk, and when Natohk threatens to bring his demonic hordes to Khoraja, Yasmela prays to the god Mitra for help. Mitra actually responds and tells her to place the fate of her entire kingdom into the hands of the first man she meets out in the city streets—and that man is a drunk, hesitant barbarian! Conan may turn out to be Khoraja’s best hope for survival, but his distrust of the soft upper classes and their disdain for his common station may derail any possibility of working together to halt Natohk’s bid for world domination. Timothy Truman adapts Robert E. Howard’s powerful “Black Colossus” short story and sets Conan off on what will be his bloodiest battle yet, when the mercenaries of Amalric clash with the massive powers of Natohk!

PEANUTS THEN AND NOW FIGURE SETS
On sale Apr 21

Snoopy Then and Now Set
$24.99

Charlie Brown Then and Now Set
$24.99

The year 2010 marks the sixtieth anniversary of Charles Schulz’s enduring creation Peanuts.

When the strip debuted in 1950, the look and style of the characters were different than today. All of the many licensed products have reflected today’s look; few, if any, are in the original style.

As Dark Horse’s contribution to the anniversary, we decided to bring the original look back with these twin-packs of small vinyl figures. Each set shows the characters as they were in the old days and what they are like now.

We found poses taken straight from the strips, and these specific panels will be depicted on the packaging. All four are in a running pose, which makes them look well placed together as a set.

Each figure measures close to four inches in height and is on a grass-green base (not pictured). Sculpted by the great talents at Yoe! Studio.

Two warring tribes from the stars have chosen Earth’s killing fields as their arena, with each clan sworn to eradicate the other . . . and all who stand between them. Each is the other’s prey, each the other’s Predator.

The hunt resumes as Dark Horse Books unleashes Predator once again into the graphic-fiction jungle. Features the creative team of writer John Arcudi (Aliens, B.P.R.D., Doom Patrol) and artist Javier Saltares (Aliens vs. Predator, Ghost Rider).

Howard’s classic Solomon Kane tale “Rattle of Bones” and the unfinished “Death’s Black Riders” fragment, as Mario Guevara (Lone Ranger and Tonto) and Juan Ferreyra (Rex Mundi, Small Gods) join him to illustrate another horror-tinged adventure.
