Letters by Chris Mowry
Cover by Francesco Francavilla, Claudia Gironi
IDW Publishing
Release Date: February 22, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Over thirty years since the release of the original film and the franchise still holds just as much magic for me now as it did then. I speak, of course, of the movie Highlander. With the release of this newest comic Highlander: The American Dream #1, I find myself drawn back into the world of sword swinging immortals and their quest to be the last of their kind. As it is so eloquently put: “There can be only one.”

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 19, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

Would you look at this, I’m getting to review a Kiss comic. Usually Empress Eve is the one who gets the pleasure of reviewing Kiss items, but as luck would have it, she’s extraordinarily busy right now and I didn’t hesitate to jump on it! So here is Dynamite Entertainment’s KISS #1!

The setup is this: The world reached a point where civilization was in jeopardy and war threatened to exterminate mankind, once and for all. The Great War, as it is now referred to 468 years later, forced a large group of people underground. They pieced together a new society, saving what they could from the surface in an attempt to preserve at least some of their history. For almost five centuries, these survivors have lived in the subterranean city of Blackwell in peace and solitude. But nothing lasts forever.

Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dynamite comic book titles that were released on December 30, 2015. I’m really enjoying the Vampirella storyline with Aliens, or is it the Aliens storyline with Vampirella. Whichever, it’s been fun. I also got my first taste of Warren Ellis writing James Bond. Well done, sir. Well done, indeed.

Fight Club 2 #2
Fight Club 2 #2
Written by Chuck Palahniuk
Art by Cameron Stewart
Colors by Dave Stewart
Letters by Nate Piekos
Cover Art by David Mack and Francesco Francavilla
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 24, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

You know that saying “You are your own worst enemy?” Well, no one knows that as well as the guy who’s currently calling himself Sebastian. You might know him from his exploits a decade ago. But this story is unfolding in the newest installment: Fight Club 2 #2. Because if you crack the candy(ass) coating you’ll get a long, dark look at Tyler Durden lurking right below the surface. He is buried inside, right? Hunh, well maybe not.

If you find yourself unfamiliar with Chuck Palahniuk‘s Fight Club then shame on you, there’s really no excuse for that kind of behavior. When we are done here I expect you to go grab a copy and read it. And no, watching the movie does not count. Because as sure as I am sitting here listening to Filter, you NEED to embrace the awesomeness that is Chuck P. So much twisted goodness that you won’t know what to do. But I digress. Let’s chat about this comic, shall we?

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War banner

I don’t know why I never thought of a Star Trek and Green Lantern crossover before, but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. IDW Publishing, DC Comics, and CBS Consumer Products made the announcement this weekend at WonderCon 2015 that they are teaming up to release Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War this July. The six-issue mini-series will be written by Mike Johnson with art by Angel Hernandez.

The Spectrum War will feature Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps going into the world of Star Trek‘s 23rd Century, joining forces with the Federation after some of the Federation’s greatest enemies find themselves in possession of some Power Rings.

Written by Ande Parks

Covers by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 18, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #25 is, sadly, the last issue of this fantastic series. But, boy, does it go out with a bang!!!

Writer Ande Parks once again delivers a great, new, yet classic Lone Ranger story. It’s got all the hallmarks of the classic western hero. Throughout his run, he’s made this comic more than just a comic book. He’s brought life and REAL feelings to the readers of this title. He’s brought inspiration through this book. And, he’s showed us all that there is a hero in every single one of us, as long as we stand strong and do the right thing. In short, he’s turned The Lone Ranger into more than a great western comic; he’s given us a role model. A man that we can all aspire to be.

Comic Review: Doctor Spektor #1

Doctor Spektor #1 cover header

Doctor Spektor #1
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Neil Edwards
Colors by Jordan Boyd
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Edits by Nate Cosby of Cosby & Sons Productions
Covers by Christian Ward, Francesco Francavilla, Phil Hester, Jae Lee, and Ken Haeser
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 28, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Doctor Spektor #1 is a whole lotta crazy. I mean a WHOLE LOT of crazy. Now, was it crazy good or crazy bad? Let’s take a look.

Going into this, I have to admit, I’ve never read a Doctor Spektor comic before in my life. But, I heard Mark Waid was writing it, so I wanted to at least check it out. Lemme tell you, I’m really glad I did. You don’t have to know anything about the character to enjoy this comic. In fact, I think if you followed the character before, that might hurt your enjoyment of this book. Waid gives us a Doctor Spektor that’s basically a reality TV star, but unlike the reality shows on TV now, this one’s actually a REAL reality show. If that makes sense. On camera, he’s a strong, fearless master of the occult, but behind closed doors, he’s a hot mess. I won’t go into any spoilers, but this is a REALLY interesting character, and if you removed all the monster fighting, I would still read this book, as Waid makes him an incredibly interesting and compelling character.

Comic Review: The Lone Ranger #24

The Lone Ranger #24 cover by Francesco Francavilla

The Lone Ranger #24
Written by Ande Parks

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 7, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #24 proves why this comic book series is the BEST western book out there, bar none. If you’re interested in the character of the Lone Ranger or have a fondness for the western genre at all, you need to pick this book up.

Twenty-four issues in and Ande Parks proves that he’s still got it. In fact, he’s always had it, and never lost it. This issue is almost like Die Hard on a train, except better (sorry Under Siege 2). It’s filled with action and suspense and there’s a mystery going on that is partly revealed, and most of all, it’s what a Lone Ranger comic should be.

Illustrated by Daniel Indro
Colored by Josan Gonzalez
Lettered by Joshua Cozine
Cover by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: December 11, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

David Liss does an amazing job of channeling the voice of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Dynamite’s new Sherlock Holmes: Moriarty Lives #1.

The reader is thrust into Switzerland’s Reichenbach Falls just beyond the last pages of the legendary tale of the showdown between Sherlock Holmes and his nemesis, Professor James Moriarty. As the title of this release alludes, Moriarty survives the fall that was presumed to have killed him and decides to hide out in a nearby village until he can rebuild his criminal enterprise.

IDW Publishing
Release Date: November 20, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Spanning fifty years, Doctor Who may be better identified for its impact on television viewers, but the universe of comics have had its share of significant tales of the Time Lord, and with the finale of Prisoners of Time, we reach a closing chapter on the comic book celebrations for the 50th anniversary.

With The Time Of The Doctor still to come on television on Christmas Day, there’s still much to come – but just like the impending regeneration into the Peter Capaldi Doctor, the concluding chapter of Prisoners of Time promises that the Doctor Who comic legacy will also continue into the future.
