Concrete is back! Dark Horse Comics, celebrating its 25th anniversary, restarts a print version of its very first title, the anthology book Dark Horse Presents (DHP). It originally ran over 157 issues from 1986 through 2000, and most famously spawned Frank Miller's Sin City. The first issue contained the very first Concrete short story. So what better choice for the opening tale in Dark Horse's latest incarnation (after an almost three year run in digital format at MySpace) than to start with the first new Concrete tale in six years!

Upcoming projects. The mini-series Concrete: Stars Over Sand has been moved to a later date. "In it Concrete visits the Sand Dunes National Monument in Colorado, USA. This is the largest area of sand dunes in North America, a stark landscape of dunes surrounded by dry mountains. In it Concrete becomes lost and, worse, loses his memory after being struck by lightning. The story is about his fight back to civilization and his life after being reduced to about as little as a man can be -- a node of awareness in a vast, strange land."
Paul Chadwick is writing a Concrete novel. See a pencil sketch for the cover, from Paul's weblog:
The next big project will be a series written by Harlan Ellison.
