Image Comics is serving up a Christmas treat for Criminal fans in the pages of their Image! 30th anniversary anthology. Creators Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have created a Christmas story starring Teeg Lawless in a take-off of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol.
“I’ve been wanting to do a Christmas-themed Criminal story since we first started the book,” said Brubaker. “So, Sean and I had a blast returning to that world for ‘Teeg’s Christmas Carol.’ Twelve pages of bad dad Christmases and history lessons.”
Phillips drew the cover, which features a cigarette puffing, Santa-hat wearing Teeg:

Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir, Fernando Heinz Furukawa, Michael Atiyeh and Sachin Teng return for another volume that ties into the popular video game franchise.
Dark Horse has announced another Dragon Age series in their series-of-miniseries approach to the franchise, reuniting the same team that created Dragon Age: Blue Wraith earlier this year.
And that’s good news, as the team has been knocking these miniseries out of the park, with new characters and adventures that help grow the world of Thedas. Writers Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, who also worked on Dark Horse’s Knight Errant and Deception miniseries, return for Dragon Age: Dark Fortress, joined again by artist Fernando Heinz Furukawa, who also drew Knight Errant, and colorist Michael Atiyeh. Sachin Teng will again provide the covers.

Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir and Fernando Heinz Furukawa reunite for a new miniseries by Bioware and Dark Horse.
In the lead up to the New York Comic Con, Dark Horse has announced a new Dragon Age miniseries, spinning out of the popular Bioware video game franchise.

‘Hard in Hightown’ brings Varric Tethras’ classic story out of the game and into your hands as a hardcover in July.
Fans of the Dragon Age video game series know that the best supporting character in the game, the enterprising dwarf Varric Tethras, wields a mean writing pen in addition to his automatic crossbow. Dragon Age 2, for instance, details the creation of a book called Hard in Hightown as a side story, giving you the opportunity to collect chapters of the story as you play. Hard in Hightown features somewhat familiar-sounding characters and was a source of contention between Varric and other members of Hawke’s party.
Next July, Dark Horse plans to release a hardcover of Hard in Hightown, adapting that story into comic form. “Ghostwritten” by Mary Kirby, who wrote Varric for both Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition, the book will be illustrated by Stefano Martino, Álvaro Sarraseca, Andres Ponce, and German Ponce, with a painted cover by E.M. Gist.
