80-Page Thursday: Dark Horse Presents #17!

Another quick look at one you might still be able to find at your comic shop: Dark Horse Presents #17, with stories and art from Richard Corben, Carla Speed McNeil, Michael Avon Oeming, David Chelsea, and more.

McNeil's Finder is an odd chapter this time, with a reference to quadrotriticale that surprised me. Corben adapts Edgar Allan Poe's "The Sleeper," and Layman and Kieth's Aliens serial wraps up in probably the way you'd expect. Chelsea's "The Girl with the Keyhole Eyes" finishes as well, and while I still think it's a shaggy dog story, it's entertaining.

There are a couple done-in-one stories this issue as well: Oeming and Santos' "The Sacrifice" and another Mr. Monster story from Michael T. Gilbert. By the time I post this, some of these stories may have be solicited in single issues--I'm positive the Aliens one will be collected, for one.
