So here’s the deal, I am a Vampirella fan. I have been for years and I doubt that will ever change. But after several decades, the stories are starting to blend together. Not to say that I didn’t like Savage Tales: Vampirella #1 but it has some predictable plot points to it.

You just cannot go wrong with a story about KISS, you know? But like peanut butter and chocolate, some things are even better with a pairing. This holds especially true in KISS/Army of Darkness #1. Entrusted with the power of The Destroyer, our fearsome foursome uses their power to protect mankind, rather than for destruction.

Release Date: February 21, 2018

When you think of the James Bond films or really any of Ian Fleming’s 007 tales, you think of cool cars, quirky bad guys, and amazing gadgets. But James Bond: M, a new one-shot comic from Dynamite Entertainment, approaches things a little differently. This time it is all about the man behind the agent.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: September 20, 2017

At long last, the final issue of one of the best alliances the seventies could ever offer is here. In Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #6, our heroines find themselves outmaneuvered and outmatched! But things are not as bleak as you might think. Because while CASTRA has seemingly endless troops, our mighty ladies have backup of their own.

In this issue, Diana has recovered from her injury and she and Jaime race towards the great battle with the Fembots on Paradise Island. Modern technology meets sword and arrow as the two groups square off in melee combat. Armored up, our heroines literally drop into battle and take their place defending the home of the Amazons.

Written by Mark Powers

Release Date: September 13, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

So yeah, I’m a huge fan of the The Dresden Files in each and every incarnation it presents itself. But as much as I just cannot seem to get enough of title character, Harry Dresden, I am constantly surprised that his lack of forethought has yet to cost him his life. As a matter of fact, Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #4 is a perfect example of this. Harry just cannot seem to embrace the concept of thinking before acting.

Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle #0
Written by Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo
Art by Moritat
Colors by Andre Szymanowicz
Letters by Thomas Napolitano
Cover by Emanuela Lupacchino and Fabio Mantovani, J. Scott Campbell and Sabine Rich, Moritat and Andre Szymanowicz, Ryan Sook
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 9, 2017
Cover Price: $0.25

Talk about a convoluted history! This character has seen more revisions than the MLA Handbook! In Sheena: Queen of the Jungle #0, we see a modern take on a vintage character. Older than Wonder Woman but just as overtly sexualized for decades, Sheena has been both a powerful role model and a scantily clad vixen. Time after time, people have tried to create the perfect version of this character only to fall short of their goals. Not only have a multitude of comic companies tried to invigorate this character over the years, but a feature film and two different television series. Other adaptations, sans the name, have occurred but that is clearly more influence than attempt.

This particular issue is obviously a set up for the upcoming series and it is not quite a full length comic, weighing in at fifteen pages of story. But when something costs you merely a quarter, you should not complain even a little. Portraying the heroine in a strong, thoughtful manner, this sneak peek is little more than an introduction but still has a bit of adventure wedged into its small frame. There is quite a bit more dialogue than expected but she does speak with animals in several past versions. This oratory seems, however, to be mainly for the reader and not really to drive the plot.

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.

Skin & Earth #1
Written, Illustrated, and Lettered by Lights
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: July 12, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

The world has changed, nothing is as it was. The line between the haves and the have-nots has widened, delineated by the wall that separates them physically. But more than that, in Skin & Earth #1 there is an emotional difference in where you live. It is reinforced by the quality of life or lack thereof. For a student like En Jin, who sees the way the others live in luxury, it is a terrible blow to her already fragile psyche.

Nothing makes me smile like reading something about my favorite wizard and private investigator, Harry Dresden. That’s why Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #2 is the first piece I am writing on this glorious first day of my vacation. But it gets even better. Senior White Council member Listens-To-Wind has joined forces with our beloved Chicagoan to look into some strange happenings in a small secluded town.
