    "This is a fantastic place to learn about the comics that fall under the legendary DC brand. I was very impressed to see a full line up of many of the comic-book characters I am familiar with - Superman, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Justice Leage, as well as many, many others.

    "Dark Horse Comics is a definite contender against the big well known DC and Marvel comic companies. Dark Horse is actually the largest independent comic companies. Sin city and hell boy were favorites of my brother growing up. I have to say I'm not much of a comic reader but I do appreciate a good marvel movie with Thor. When looking at Dark Horse comics website it's very user friendly, fast webpage, not all the thrills but colorful and efficient. It features all their work on their page in a drop down menu. Overall it looks like a great company with some classic comics but also going in the direction to create new. "

    "This is a very good site and it is nice that they allow people to protect their work and sell it without having to go to another source an outright sell the rights to their own creation. I feel it may be the perfect outlet for this type of creativity "

    "I think the same to this person. The story is more than known, even, there are many adaptations, summarized novels, complete with illustrations. But I had not found a graphic novel that tells us about one of the most enigmatic monsters in horror literature, Frankenstein. Well, even if they know that the book has that monster title, it is not the real enemy in this story."
