Two years ago, Dark Horse made an open-submissions call in hopes of turning up undiscovered talent. What it got constitutes as diverse a collection as ever appeared between covers: Nick Plumber and Adam Adamowicz's paranoiac horror tale about rat infestation; "Discreet Despair," enigmatic, poetic expressions of futility by RHS (Brazilian Rafael da Silveira) that would be at home in Blab! a tale about high-school students and an alien invasion that Andrew Krahnke draws in a sharp, Frank Miller-derived black-and-white; whimsical humor by Jacob Chabot that features the fearsome-visaged, ill-tempered youngster Skullboy and his oddball friends; and two period contributions by Ian Culbard, one a Victorian-era mystery pitting a Holmes-like detective against a robotic mass murderer, the other a zombie tale set in eighteenth-century Britain. Yet this admirable variety accentuates a commercial weakness common to such anthologies, for it's hard to picture readers with tastes ranging wide enough to appreciate the gentle humor of Skullboy and RHS' avant-gardism. Still, the small segment of comics fandom that thrives on eclecticism should be thrilled. Gordon Flagg
