Dream Thief #2Dream Thief #2
Written by Jai Nitz
Art & Lettering by Greg Smallwood
Cover by Ryan Sook
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Dream Thief #2 continues the awesome yet confusing story of John Lincoln in his super crazy adventure, for lack of a better term, that…you know what? I don’t even know. Your guess is as good as mine!!

Jai Nitz is horribly underrated in the comic book business. I’ve sung his praises before on the excellent Green Hornet Legacy title that he writes for Dynamite Entertainment, and here, we have more of the same. Only, the two books in question could NOT be more different. Basically when John Lincoln falls asleep, horrible horrible things happen. And, he has, in addition to his own memories, the memories of several other people. This issue’s focus is very adult in nature and as not to offend anyone, I won’t go into specific detail here, but trust me when I tell you – this is a GREAT book. Not only this issue, which is superbly written, but the series in general. Now, that’s high praise for a series that’s only on issue two. But, please, TRUST me on this, you will LOVE this book!!!

Written by Jai Nitz

Cover by Alex Ross
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: May 15, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

First issues for all comic books can be a huge indicator of whether or not the series will have a successful run. Dark Horse has just released Dream Thief #1, the story of a man who finds himself with a very interesting ability. Written by Jai Nitz with illustrations from Greg Smallwood, Dream Thief is a clever, well-crafted, and suspenseful read and I have a feeling that it will have a favorable level of readership.

John Lincoln is a deadbeat. He wastes away his days pretending to be an aspiring movie director and stage magician, and parties at night with booze, drugs, and women. Donning an aboriginal mask, John wakes up one morning unable to remember what happened the night before; however, he soon realizes that his memories are not his own, but of a man connected in some way to his girlfriend, Claire. Suddenly, the menacing acts that John committed the night before while wearing the very same mask all begin to flow freely through his mind. With the narrative in the form of a letter, it is also revealed to John that whatever is happening to him might in fact be hereditary.

Green Hornet:Legacy #34Green Hornet: Legacy #34
Written by Jai Nitz
Art by Jethro Morales
Colors by Alexandre Starling

Cover by Stephen Sadowski
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 10, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Green Hornet: Legacy #34 is the first issue of the title previously known as Green Hornet. And I have to say, adding the word “legacy” to the title was a great move by Dynamite. First, it distinguishes itself from the Green Hornet title by Mark Waid. Secondly, it deserves the title, as this is the story of the modern day Britt Reid carrying on the legacy that was started almost a hundred years ago.

Jai Nitz takes this book in a new direction, focusing on the modern day Britt Reid and his Kato and their quest to bring order back to Central City. When we join this issue, Britt has been in a coma for the last several week and while he has, Clutch has become the Green Hornet in his absence, although a VERY different kind of Green Hornet than Britt was. This is just a really fun super hero book, with all the trimmings. It’s got costumed bad guys, a city going down in flames, and a terrific last page cliffhanger.

Release Date: October 31, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Green Hornet #30 fills in a much needed gap in the current comic market. And that is super heroes solving crimes and fighting bad guys. Other companies have heroes battling heroes, fighting super villains, but this is just back to basics good guys vs. bad guys.

Author Jai Nitz turns in a fun script in this issue. It’s PACKED with new twists and turns in the Green Hornet saga. He introduces some new allies for the Hornet, does a great job moving the villains story forward without even having the villain IN THE COMIC. And, last but not least, he changes something in the Green Hornet mythos that has never been done before. So far, I kinda like it. It’ll be interesting to see where it goes and if the changes stick.

Release Date: September 12, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Green Hornet #28 debuts a brand new creative team for the title. I don’t expect them to prove themselves their first time out, but I have to admit, they made a pretty good showing in their first issue on this title.

Writer Jai Nitz is all over the place…but, that’s a good thing. There’s PLENTY of action and mystery going on during the issue, as well as some nice comedic touches. There’s a lot of set up here, which is to be expected, and I think the grand scheme that he’s got planned is going to take awhile to roll out, which is fine as long as he keeps up the pacing that he’s got going this issue. If not, I’m afraid it could drag. BUT, I saw more bad than good here, and I see a lot of potential for Nitz’s writing.

Release Date: June 27, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

In Kirby Genesis: Silver Star #6 there’s a LOT going on. Unfortunately, I didn’t like much of it, to be honest. While it was a good effort, I found myself SO lost in this comic, that I almost gave up reading it. But for you, dear readers, I stuck with it.

Writer Jai Nitz had me SO confused with this issue I don’t know where to start. This comic is ALL over the map, it seems there’s more than a handful of Silver Stars and a number of his villains (who are also all the same person), that I really had a problem knowing just who was who and who I should be routing for. There’s also a little girl, that I THINK turns into a love interest in the end, but I honestly don’t know. I’m afraid this comic falls victim to some VERY confusing storytelling. A narrative or re-cap paragraph would’ve helped immensely here.

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.

Tron: BetrayalTron: Betrayal
Paperback
Writer: Jai Nitz
Pencils: Andie Tong and Jeff Matsuda
Inks: Pete Pantazis
Marvel Comics
Release Date: November 16, 2010

In the nearly thirty years between the events of Tron and Tron: Legacy, a lot has happened in Kevin Flynn’s life. Legacy gives the viewer all the basic information needed to understand and enjoy the events that take place, but for those who want the whole story, Tron: Betrayal gives you that and much more.

Kevin Flynn is a man torn between two worlds. In the real world he is the head of ENCOM, a Fortune 500 corporation, and a father-to-be. He is also the creator of a digital world that has undergone some drastic change in its short existence. The program TRON helps to keep order and security in the grid while Flynn is gone, but the expanding world needs more than just order. The amount of attention needed in both worlds has run Flynn down, so he creates CLU, a program in his own image to run the grid in his stead. CLU is charged by Flynn with creating “the perfect system” and he takes this task very seriously, going to extreme lengths to ensure its success. As a divide begins between CLU and Flynn’s definition of perfection, Flynn’s real-world responsibilities keep him away from the grid for longer periods of time than usual. The division between the grid’s creator and its supervisor is reaching a boiling point, all while Flynn is trying to raise his newborn son and still maintain an active role at ENCOM.
