The Bionic Woman #10The Bionic Woman #10
Written by Paul Tobin
Art by Juan Antonio Ramirez
Colors by Inlight Studios
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Erik Jones
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: July 3, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Sadly, The Bionic Woman #10 is the last issue of this highly underrated series. Although it was plagued by many things like lateness and low readership, quality storytelling surely wasn’t the problem.

Writer Paul Tobin ends this series the same way he started it – with some good action, page-turning suspense, and a thrilling story. It’s Jamie and the Fembots versus Russia in this issue, and by the looks of these things, Russia’s chances aren’t looking too great. Once again, Tobin has taken the regular, expected story and flipped it on its ear. There’s some really great hold your breath moments in this issue, as well as some great action and a definite ending to the Fembots storyline. The book also ends with a wink and a nod, just like comic books used to end, but it never goes over the top corny either.

Red Sonja #75Red Sonja #75
Written by Eric Trautmann
Pencils by Marcio Abreu
Colors by Salvatore Aiala Studios
Lettered by Simon Bowland
Covers by Mel Rubi, Erik Jones and Walter Geovani
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 22, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Red Sonja #75 is the last issue of Dynamite Entertainment’s longest running title. Although the series ends on an OK note story wise, in my opinion, it deserved a much better send off than it got.

Writer Eric Trautmann gives us a pretty satisfying ending to the latest story line within the title, but for a title that’s been coming out for the last 8 years, I wanted something WAY more out of this issue than just a last chapter to a the latest 6 month story line. The issue is about 99% war between Sonja and her army against Omaju and his. With, a surprise enemy thrown in for good measure and “shock” value. Again, what it fails to deliver is an ending to the SERIES or this chapter in her life. It’s simply just a turning point in Sonja’s life. This could’ve been issue #34 or #58 or any other natural story break. Simply put, the issue was good. Just not good enough.

The Bionic Woman #9The Bionic Woman #9
Written by Paul Tobin
Art by Juan Antonio Ramirez
Colors by Mark Roberts

Cover by Erik Jones
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Bionic Woman #9 is pretty much the comic that fans of The Bionic Woman television series have wanted since the program aired in the 1970s. Yeah, it’s that good.

Throughout this series, writer Paul Tobin has been firing on all cylinders. This issue, is no exception. He turns in a great story and an even better script. It’s crisp, fun, fast moving, and all around great. It’s more great action and espionage for Jamie in this jam-packed with action issue. What impresses me most, though is the dialogue. It’s natural, it’s non-stop and it’s just plain fantastic. This is a great pen-ultimate chapter to this story line, and one that will have you counting the days until issue #10 is released.

Elric: the Balance Lost #4Elric: The Balance Lost #4
Elric created by Michael Moorcock
Written by Chris Roberson
Art by Francesco Biagini
Colors by Stephen Downer
Lettering by Travis Lanham
Covers by Francesco Mattina, Erik Jones
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: October 12, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

This is it! This issue begins to bring it all together. Elric: The Balance Lost #4 is obviously the precursor to a major occurrence. This team of folks is laying some seriously awesome groundwork for a great story. As we all know, I’m a big Elric fan, but it’s a really good series.

We start off in Tanelorn, the city that is both everywhere and sometimes nowhere. A quick visit to the Grey Lords leaves the reader knowing something is wrong. Jumping to Machinoix, we see Elric and the Horn of Fate trying to avoid the chaos that approaches. Next is New Orleans and Eric Beck fending off the warriors of Law. Then comes Corum in the stronghold of the Pukawatchi helping to defend against a siege. Lastly, we have Hawkmoon trapped in Narleen with a demonic cult.

Raised only by her mother, Nola Thomas led a confused lifestyle prior to the devastating events of Hurricane Katrina laid waste to her home city of New Orleans, Louisiana. After being nearly murdered by her boyfriend, a powerful married man, Nola wakes up after the hurricane to discover that half of her body has been burned, and that she has been left for dead, alone, in a New Orleans hospital. Nola goes home to find out that her mother has passed away.

Nola takes this opportunity of a post-apocalyptic setting of lawlessness and rage to take out all of her transgressions on the people responsible for all the wrong that has been done to her.

Issue #4 concludes this mini-series and gives us all the answers to every question that was presented in NOLA. We find out who murdered her father, and all the details of the elaborate cover up.
