These days it is zombie this and zombie that. But once upon a time, vampires were a far bigger deal and horror fans would pack movie theaters and buy the books like crazy. And I do not mean those sparkly little pansy vampires, either. They should never have existed! Anyway, in Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter #1 we get a glimpse of those fiends of yesteryear.

The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest TPB
Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Ronilson Freire

Titan Comics
Release Date: June 28, 2017
Cover Price: $19.99

Cycles. Everything in existence seems to be cyclical. Take this comic for instance. The Mummy: Volume 1: Palimpsest is a rebirth of the mummy movie franchise that Hammer Films brought to the silver screen in 1959. These were, to some extent, a rebirth themselves from the old black and white films decades earlier. But what Hammer Films did was modernize the characters and connect to a whole new generation of fans.

So, in the spirit of it all, Titan Comics has partnered with Hammer to create this all new adventure. Originally a five issue mini-series, this trade paperback combines all of Ronilson Freire‘s sequential art with a whole lot more in the way of galleries, history, and commentary. With each resurrection of our iconic main character, we see some subtle (and not so subtle) differences that reflect the times in which we live. This concept is explored by Peter Milligan in the comic script in such a way as to make as obvious point of different life is today than what it once was.

I loved the original 1992 Anno Dracula novel by British writer Kim Newman. Let’s just get that out of the way, okay? So it stands to reason that I would jump at the chance to review the new comic book Anno Dracula: 1895: Seven Days In Mayhem #1, right? Well, you would correct. And for a fan like me, the comic was pretty much what I would want and expect. But for the first-time reader, not so much.

Release Date: March 8, 2017
Paperback | Digital

Is it just me or is everything taking a turn for the darker side lately? Well, I can tell you that Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #1 is certainly following that trend. This is nothing at all like the books I grew up reading in the seventies. As a matter of fact, it feels like it would make a rather successful television show on the CW.

Bond. James Bond. Iconic and straightforward, just like the man himself. As a matter of fact, this might be both his greatest strength and most crippling weakness. In the newest tale from Dynamite Entertainment, Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007: Black Box #1, this is explored and exploited in equal amounts.

Release Date: March 1, 2017
Cover Price: $14.99 (Digital)

Last year, I reviewed a new comic that was the beginning of a prequel story to the Penny Dreadful Showtime series. I also mentioned that I had yet to see any of the series, but that initial issue piqued my interest. Well, here we are several months later and I have binge-watched the entire TV series. Suffice to say, I loved it and was extremely happy to see Penny Dreadful Volume 1 TPB in my inbox last week.

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: August 24, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m a long time fan of westerns. I grew up watching The Lone Ranger, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and the like. The concept of man living so close to nature and constantly at odds with both his environment and other humans appealed to me for some reason. Later, my attention turned to fantasy novels and role-playing games but the love of a good story set in the Old West was always there. So when someone comes along and mixes the two, I’m always down for a good a read. Kingsway West #1 is most definitely trying its best to find a place in my heart.

Read on and I’ll tell you why!

I’ve never seen the Showtime series of the same name, but if it’s anything like Penny Dreadful #1 then I’m going to have to track the first episodes down and subscribe to it immediately. Truth be told, I never knew it had anything to do with the gothic novels of yesteryear; that alone is enough to get me interested. Additionally, after having read this wicked little piece of sequential art, I am fully prepared to indulge myself with this franchise. Why, you ask? Keep reading and I’ll tell you.

Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dynamite comic book titles that were released on December 30, 2015. I’m really enjoying the Vampirella storyline with Aliens, or is it the Aliens storyline with Vampirella. Whichever, it’s been fun. I also got my first taste of Warren Ellis writing James Bond. Well done, sir. Well done, indeed.
