**** (out of five)

Dark Horse Comics has been around for 20 years, so they’ve decided to honour some of the great series and creators that that have helped establish them as one of the world’s best publishers by giving you an anniversary present.
For a mere 25 cents (or maybe a few pennies more if you’re north of the border), you can see Adam Hughes’ smoking Hellboy, Frank Miller’s stab at Usagi Yojimbo and Eric Powell’s take on Star Wars. You see, instead of having all these outstanding creators do a one-page pinup of their own creations, they’ve all swapped. The result is some incredible work that more than justifies the meagre sum required to purchase this book.
With work by Art Adams, Sergio Aragones, Paul Chadwick, Matt Wagner and others, and a rare delve into art by Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon, this issue is the perfect anniversary gift.
