Release Date: April 3, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

I have been a lifelong fan of Bettie Page and must admit that the zany adventure comics that Dynamite has been producing with her as the leading lady have entertained me to no end.

More than just a pretty face, Bettie has saved the world several times over. Her uncommon wit and ability to handle herself have made these new comics ongoing favorites of mine. It is because of that love that I wanted to alert you to the Bettie Page Dynamite Covers Collection.

What do you get when cross the girl next door with a little bit of risqué photography? Why Bettie Page, of course! Add in a tad of espionage and you get Bettie Page #1! This comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment is based quite loosely on one of the greatest pin-up models of all time. And while she is renowned for her fearless attitude on and off camera, this explores her “secret diaries” that have been kept from the public until now.

The law is not only after the masked vigilante known as the Spider, but The Spider #15 opens with the Spider’s alter-ego, Richard Wentworth, a wanted man!

Furious about his situation, Richard sinks even deeper into his vigilante persona. As the Spider targets members of the Red Hand gang, he also transforms his one-man-struggle from a battle for justice, into a half-drunken journey of revenge.

Written by David Liss
Art by Colton Worley
Letters by Simon Bowland
Covers by John Cassaday, Ron Lesser & Francesco Francavilla
The Spider created by Harry Steeger
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 6, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Going into The Spider #2 I was concerned about Dynamite’s decision to put a pulp hero in a modern day setting. After all, today’s audiences are NOT used to their heroes being non super-powered. And how would the mystery of the character play out in today’s world? With phones that can do literally almost anything except cook your meals, computers that can identify someone by a camera on a stoplight, and all the high tech gadgetry that goes along with that, is a guy with a hat and a gun really that big of a deal?

In 1933, pulp writer Harry Steeger created The Spider to compete with The Shadow. The Spider, while never attaining quite the level of popularity as The Shadow, took on a life of his own in pop culture and became pretty popular in the world of Pulp Heroes.

Now, almost 80 years later, the Spider is back in The Spider #1 (published by Dynamite Entertainment, the same company that’s publishing The Shadow. Can irony BE any more ironic?)!!!

Release date: August 31, 2011

I want to say upfront that I have not read the other books in the Kato Origins line. Normally this isn’t that big of a hindrance when reading a single issue. There is normally a brief recap, and then plenty of information to keep you in the know. This isn’t necessarily the case, and I’ll get to why that is in a moment.
