Sherlock Holmes: Moriarty Lives #1 cover by Francesco FrancavillaSherlock Holmes: Moriarty Lives #1
Written by David Liss
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.

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.

The Spider #9The Spider #9

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 20, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Spider #9 is the latest in many reasons why Dynamite Entertainment is KILLING it with all of the pulp hero properties that they publish. Who’d have ever thought that almost a CENTURY after his debut, The Spider would be as exciting as he was back then. Actually, I can’t verify that. You’ll just have to trust me.

David Liss brings us a story that’s SUPER retro and yet 100 percent set in the modern day and doesn’t even begin to feel out of date or like it should have been told in the past. It’s all the great trademarks of an old pulp yarn — betrayal, seduction, action, adventure, suspense, and mystery — all mixed together by a great narrative that really sucks the audience into the book. What I loved about this story was the fact there’s a great level of believability in it. Sure, there are some things that happen in the book that couldn’t really happen in real life, but about 95 percent of it COULD actually happen and I think that’s what makes this issue such a great read.

Dynamite Entertainment: The Spider #2 coverThe Spider #2
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?

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 2, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

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?)!!!

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “The Spider” Henchman21 and “The Microwave” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of October 12, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

The ‘Wave is busy traveling to New York Comic-Con, so he’s a little preoccupied this week, what with packing his Batman costume and making sure he has enough Batarangs with him so he can fight crime on the streets of the real Gotham city, so it’s just your friendly neighborhood Henchman this week (I’m already stationed here in NYC for the week). “Wavey Gravy” does want to make sure you know about The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold #12, out this week featuring a team-up with Zatanna. Because it wouldn’t be a GoD list without MK talking about a Batman comic. Here are a few books I am looking forward to this week.
