I also worked alongside Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson on the 80-page monthly anthology Dark Horse Presents, which won the Eisner Award and Diamond Gem Award for Best Anthology in 2012, 2013, and 2014, the Harvey Award for Best Anthology in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, as well as the Stumptown Comics Award for Best Anthology in 2014.
