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.

Comic Review: Trees #2

Trees #2 review header image

Trees #2
Written by Warren Ellis
Illustrated by Jason Howard
Lettered by Fonografiks
Cover by Jason Howard
Image Comics
Release Date: June 25, 2014
Cover Price: $2.99

Trees #2 by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Jason Howard is all about discovery and advantage. Characters we were introduced to in the first issue continue to uncover new aspects of the Trees and their surrounding areas; new characters hope to use the Trees for personal gain, plotting political maneuvers and power grabs; and more questions arise throughout the world.

I am not quite sure what to make of this series. The concept, in and of itself, is odd yet interesting: extremely tall, alien cylindrical structures land on earth, positioning themselves like trees. In the onset of the initial invasion, humans themselves caused global chaos. Ten years later, the Trees have done nothing. They don’t consider humans to be intelligent, or even alive for that matter; thus, humans have adapted. The Trees along with humanity’s restructure after the early fallout, have become commonplace amongst all cultures.

Moon Knight #1 cover by Declan ShalveyMoon Knight #1
Written by Warren Ellis
Art by Declan Shalvey
Colors by Jordie Bellaire
Covers by Declan Shalvey, Bill Sienkiewicz, Adi Granov, Skottie Young, and Katie Cook
Marvel Comics
Release Date: March 5, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Anyone who knows me know that I’m a HUGE Moon Knight fan. I’ve got every single issue from every single series that he was in. So, needless to say, I was more excited for Moon Knight #1 than anybody else on this planet. There was just one problem. I don’t usually like the writing of Warren Ellis.

Well, Warren Ellis proved me wrong with this book. He’s not writing like his usual self, and that threw me for a loop. Most often, when he takes on an already established character, he takes away everything that makes that character cool and spins him or her off in a totally different direction. Now, he does do that to some degree here, but he also leaves the core of who and what Moon Knight is. And, don’t worry, he even lets Moon Knight use his trademark crescent moon “moonarangs” or whatever they’re called. HE takes the character in a totally different direction than he’s ever been in before, but he makes it work and it somehow makes sense. I was very pleasantly surprised.

You’ve Seen ‘Iron Man 3,’ Now Here’s Some Comics To Read

Iron Man

So, you’ve seen Iron Man 3, and now you’re all excited to read some of the old shell head’s adventures in comic book form. Well, have I got a list for you!

Here’s a brief selection of some of the stories that inspired the movie, and some that’ll get you caught up with where the character is these days in the Marvel Universe.

Iron Man: Extremis – This is at least part of the basis for the plot of Iron Man 3, but like a lot of the Marvel movies, Iron Man 3 is only loosely based on this story (very loosely). Published in 2005 and 2006, Extremis features Tony Stark taking on a group of terrorists armed with some scary new technology that forces Iron Man to get with the times and upgrade his armor. The series, written by Warren Ellis, features a lot of new ideas for Iron Man. It is very much a Warren Ellis comic, with a bunch of near-futuristic concepts come to life and used to tell an exciting adventure. This is one of the first comics to really push Iron Man to the forefront of the Marvel universe, plus it’s a decent story and works well on its own. This is one of the best Iron Man stories to give to people who’ve never read one before.

Avengers Graphic Novel

Marvel is relaunching their original graphic novel line with of course an Avengers story. Warren Ellis (Secret Avengers) and Mike McKone (Amazing Spider-Man) have partnered up to craft this original story titled Avengers: Endless Wartime that Marvel is calling “movie-length.” The story involves Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Wolverine fighting it out in a wartorn land against an “abomination” long thought buried.

We have some images here below from the upcoming graphic novel, which is available now for pre-order to give you a taste of what’s to come!

Each of the characters appear to be bringing their own baggage to this fight as Marvel says “Captain America will not stand for yet more death at the hands of a ghost from his past. Haunted by his greatest shame, Thor must renew the hunt for a familiar beast.”
