Ah, March! We know thou art kind-hearted ... In stark and welcome contrast to Marvel's March Madness -- Necromancy Month, as I like to call it -- Dark Horse trots out its offerings.

Among them, Mike Mignola's return to the Hellboy franchise (at least as writer) with "BPRD: A Plague of Frogs" #1 with Guy Davis; "Hellboy: The Corpse," reissued and repackaged just in time for the movie; Linda Medley's "Castle Waiting, Vol. 1: The Lucky Road," part of a series I've heard good things about but never checked out; Niles Inc.'s "Criminal Macabre: A Cal McDonald Mystery," trade, "Freaks of the Heartland" #2 and "Fused: Think Like a Machine" #4 (hey, it's Steve Niles Month!); "Michael Chabon Presents ... The Amazing Adventures of the Escapist" #2; and the Eisner/Miller trade.

Plus there's a bunch of "Star Wars" stuff, manga and faux manga. The Pulse has the press release goodness.
